Busy slate ahead for SV Business Association

Good day All!

From what I hear, the July 1st General Membership meeting of the Sedona Village Business Association held at the Hilton Sedona Resort & Spa was well attended.

I was unable to attend due to a Farmers Insurance Conference and would like to thank Vice President Tim Byrne from the Blue Moon Café for chairing the meeting in my absence.

Also many thanks to Edgar Lozoya, the General Manager of the Hilton for hosting the meeting and also thanks and a job well done to our guest speaker, Michele Conway, from the Sedona Oak Creek Chamber of Commerce.

I hope every one was able to enjoy the July 4th All-American Road Celebration from the blessing of the Road by Elder Vincent Randall from the Apache Nation, to the ceremonial ribbon cutting, the short speeches from those people involved in creating the Road, the music provided by JB On The Rocks and the ice cream and cupcakes supplied by the All American Road Committee, co-sponsors of the event with your SV Business Association.

At our last Board meeting we learned that two new businesses will be opening their doors in our community in the near future.

The Coffee Grounds will open in Tequa and the Coffee Roasters will open their business as the first tenant in the building behind the gallery business in the Colosimo complex on the corner of 179 and Cortez across Cortez from La Plaza. We look forward to other new businesses in our community.

Over the next several months there are many new events in the pipeline as well as the continuation of activities like the well-received "Full Moon Walks," "Coffee & Donuts" and the "Magical Journeys."

The SV Business Association and the SV Main Street Partnership will be working to help keep these events viable and support such new events as the Celtic Harvest Festival (September), Movies At The Moon (beginning soon at the Canyon Moon Theater) and the Hilton Fine Arts Exhibit & Sale (November).

Your participation in these events is highly recommended and helps support our business community and the health of our entire community.

Part of the focus at our last SVBA Board meeting was devising a way to streamline the presentations of these community events to our Board so that each event is better coordinated with their sponsoring organizations to produce the very finest event with broad community support and participation.

Our Executive Director, Peter Gendron, will be the initial contact person on behalf of the SVBA to help these events through the sponsorship process.

The first of the SVBA monthly "Coffee and Donuts" meeting was hosted by Sean Bagley from Coldwell Banker Realty. SVBA Executive Director Peter Gendron arranged the presence of guest speakers from ADOT and the 179 landscape contractor who made presentations and answered many questions concerning the SR 179 landscape & enhancements projects.

The next "Coffee and Donuts" is being finalized as this goes to press and the location and speaker will be sent by e-mail to our membership.
