Grad Night thanks!


The Prescott High School PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Association) Grad Night Committee would like to extend a huge thank you to our community for supporting the 32nd annual PHS PTSA Grad Night Party. The event was May 26-27 at the Prescott YMCA.

This fun evening has a 32-year tradition of food, fun, and friends. Of course, this wonderful celebration would not have happened without the support of our community and parents. Thank you to all of the parents and community members who donated money, time, or in-kind donations.

This year’s class had a total of 342 graduates, we had 235 graduates attend the free party, 68 percent of the class participated in a drug- and alcohol-free all night party with loads of food, games, raffle prizes, casino, inflatables, photo booth, hypnotist, and over 600 prizes.

The YMCA went above and beyond this year to host this event and we thank them for their support.

Thanks to all of the parents and staff who volunteered to make this celebration be a night to remember. Special thanks to our Grad Night Committee: Sally, Katy, Dawn, Lori, Tyla, Amanda, Lori, Kim, Thuy, Ann, and LuAnn.

We are in the early stages of planning the 33rd annual PHS PTSA Grad Night Party. We will be looking for donations and volunteers for the 2019 event which is May 24. Questions, contact or contact Christina at 928-710-6024.

Road crews, ‘ability’


I feel grateful toward the City of Prescott road crews. They’ve been working on a major project on Washington Street for a while, and have provided the very best possible service to users in the area.

Ability is a work-study program for adults on Washington Street, and the road crew has been extraordinarily helpful for access during construction, and makes it possible for people to attend this program and use the service. They have had plenty of flaggers and assistants who provide service with a smile.

The teamwork, kindness, smiles and good service actually brings tears to my eyes. I wish the Courier would publish the names of the people who are working on this project; every single one of them deserves to be recognized.

Antique/Classic Car Show


The Chino Valley United Methodist Church extends a huge thank you to the entire community for making the 11th annual Antique/Classic Car Show on Saturday, Sept. 22, an enormous success! The participation from the community and surrounding areas was more than we imagined, to say the least.

Exceeding prior year’s participation, a total of 81 impressive vehicles registered and showcased the grounds.

Donations, raised through your overwhelming generosity, surpassed our goals for our local charities — Chino Valley Adopt-A-Family at Christmas and the Chino Valley Hungry Kids Project.

Plus, such positive comments on the food and ice cream social. A perfect day!

Thank you to all the businesses and individuals who sponsored and donated to the event. As part of our community you are definitely an integral part of the success for local events.

We look forward to seeing you and participating in the 12th annual Car Show, Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019 at the Chino Valley United Methodist Church, 735 E. Road One South, “the church with the green roof”!
