Prescott is still the town we all fell in love with. Two days before the light parade, an Alta Vista Senior Living employee approached a store downtown about parking the Alta Vista Shuttle next to the store. We were concerned about the cold and wanted the residents to watch the parade from the shuttle.
The owner of Edelweiss, DeLaine Noe, said no, our residents were not going to sit in a shuttle! They are coming into her store, sitting at the window and watching the parade. DeLaine cleared the front window display, put chairs up and made hot chocolate for our residents.
I have since learned so much about DeLaine and her support of this community. From benefit dinners to opening her store to special groups, DeLaine is a resident and business owner who steps up, helps and supports this community.
Thank you, DeLaine, for being a great example of community spirit - our residents had a great time and we will all be lifelong customers!
