By mid-1916, The Arizona Power Company had to do something to meet the demand for power mainly from mining interests. William Andrews Clark, who operated the United Verde Copper Mine in Jerome, shrewdly saw the advantage of water power instead of hauling fuel more than 1500 miles over mountains and slippery road beds. The Childs and Irving Hydro Plants would never be able to produce the electricity needed and a large steam generating plant was built 3 miles north of Clarkdale to help meet this need. Come join us as we hear the “electrifying stories” on September 16, 2017, at Clark Memorial Clubhouse Men’s Lounge, at 2:00 pm presented by historian Tim Coons. There will be photos, artifacts, documents, and stories from those who lived and worked there.

Camp Verde Parks and Recreation announces that registration is open for another season of its highly popular youth Grasshopper Basketball Program. This program for boys and girls in 1st thru 4th grade is a fun way to learn basketball and teamwork. Co-ed teams of boys and girls, led by volunteer coaches, are grouped by grade level and practice one night per week and compete on Saturday mornings. The league is intended to allow kids to have fun, learn the fundamentals of basketball and develop teamwork. Lower baskets are used as well as smaller sized basketballs to make the game more enjoyable and successful for the kids. Last year over 100 kids had a great time playing basketball – you could be next!
