Dear Neighbors
One of the most beautiful Februaries ever is coming to an end.
Most of it has been warm and mild, just ideal. A little rain has
fallen, about an inch & a half, and maybe a chance for a little
more this weekend. The new flagpole is up in Sycamore Park,
five new benches are in Rollins Park, a pedestrian safety sign is
in McGuireville and the pedestrian bridge has been craned into
The flagpole has been donated by American Legion Post 135
which meets in Cornville. Member of that Post and local
resident, John Maddox, has volunteered to raise and lower the
flag as required. One of the new benches in Rollins Park was
donated by the Nye family (owner's of Cricket's) in
remembrance of Ralph Nye, Jr. The other benches
were purchased and installed by the property owners
association (LMPOA). Alberta Amos was a major
donor in accomplishing that improvement.
The pedestrian bridge installation went smoothly and
quickly. It will be three to four weeks before it is
open to use since the approaches still need work. The
pedestrian bridge has not been painted since it
arrived. It is rusting naturally and will gradually
darken. Thank you's are due to Supervisor Thurman
and Yavapai County Public Works for hearing community
pleas for a crosswalk safety sign in McGuireville and getting
one put in place!
The missing horse has been found alive and returned to owner
Mike Williams. Resident Ellen DalCerro called her horse and
cattle connections and alerted them to look for the horse. She
contacted the foreman of the V Bar V Ranch who then found
the horse near M Diamond Ranch, still wearing a saddle and
bridle but no reins. Through Ellen he was able to contact the
owner to come get his horse. Mr. Williams extends heartfelt
thank you's to all who searched.
Joe Mongini, a Lake Montezuma resident for 43 years, died peacefully at home on Feb
14th. He was 96 years old. A rosary service will be held on Saturday, Feb 28th at St.
Frances Cabrini Catholic Church in Camp Verde at 10:30 AM followed by a memorial
service to be held there at 11 AM. A reception and celebration of Joe's life will be held at
Vintages Grille starting at 12:30 PM. Mr Mongini was well-known throughout the
community due to his daily walks and sweet personality. He lived an interesting life
including birth in Italy and becoming the Mayor of Cottonwood. The information
provided by his family members is in the Bugle at this link. His family requests donations
to the Beaver Creek Adult Center in lieu of flowers.
Montezuma Fire District is looking for two more board members. If you'd like to apply,
the information is below. Also if you'd like to help out with the Buzzard Bonfire, the
contact details are below, too.
