Dear Neighbors
Maybe we’ll be enjoying some rain (or hail) with our busy week in Beaver Creek.  Please be safe and heed all alerts.  Everything is still being held later in the week, so don’t miss out on the Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner at the Fire House on Thursday or the free food and activities all day on Saturday in Rollins Park sponsored by Grace Community Lutheran Church, Beaver Creek Trails Coalition and Beaver Creek Kiwanis. Wonderful food and snow cones are free. Don’t miss face painting, games, a car show and trails information.  BC Kiwanis is working with Supervisor Thurman and Yavapai County Facilities to purchase additional playground equipment for Sycamore Park using Kiwanis funds.  Here is an example:
Beaver Creek School currently has a position open for a custodian. If there are any questions, please call the front office and ask for Lyndel Kelley. Applications can be printed off of the website at bcs.k12.az.us or picked up in the main office of the school. An IVP fingerprint clearance card is required.  Information on where to get the fingerprint card is also available from Lyndel.
The final nine fire hydrants (from the more than 50 total) have been installed thanks to our generous community benefactor Eddie Lodge. His bequest of $550,000 dollars toward the fire protection of Beaver Creek has been fulfilled. Fire Chief Terry Keller plans to put any remaining amount after the probate is completed toward the purchase of a water truck which will help serve those in the community whose residences aren’t located near water lines.
