Get ready to 'Light the Village'

Holiday talk in September? You better believe it! Back a few months ago, the Sedona Village Business Association held a meeting with business owners. We wanted to find out what we all could do to promote business here in the Village.

Lots of great things were talked about but one idea seemed to be unanimous for all in attendance: decorate the section of 179 that runs through our town for the holidays.

After calling some people and doing some investigating, we found a company that shared the same vision we did on what this would look like.

After meeting with the All American Road Committee, the Red Rock Road Enhancement Maintenance District and ADOT, we have submitted our special use application to ADOT for the event we have appropriately named "Light The Village."

By the time you read this we should have that permit approved and will be off and running on the next phase of our project.

Phase two is the fundraising for this event and we have set our sights high. We are now calling on all residents and business owners of the village to help us reach our goal in bringing a vibrant holiday atmosphere to our town.

One of the things that we felt important to present to donors of this project is the ability to get a tax credit for your donation. The All American Road Committee stepped in to help us and as such all payments made out to Red Rock Scenic Byway will be issued a tax deductable receipt.

As we get closer to our goal, we will also be talking with everyone involved on how to best have a kickoff event to showcase the lights and our town.

Let me be the first to say we greatly appreciate any support you can lend to this project and we hope to make this the annual event for SVBA, for many years to come.

All tax deductable donations again need to be made out to the Red Rock Scenic Byway and can be mailed to SVBA/ Light the Village PO Box 21412 Sedona AZ 86341-1412.

We will be keeping everyone updated of our progress on the website at
