Camp Verde, Beaver Creek Centennial plans set

Steve Ayers

CAMP VERDE - The Verde Confluence Centennial Legacy Project has been in the works since 2009, when the Camp Verde Town Council issued a proclamation calling for a centennial committee to be formed.

The committee, which came to include members from Camp Verde, Beaver Creek, Cottonwood and the Yavapai Apache Nation has spent the intervening time developing and producing a movie about the valley's storied past.

In fact, it more than one movie. During the course of production, 30 or so three to five minute vignettes were made by individuals, telling stories of native Americans, early pioneers, and latter day residents and their contributions to the valley's collective past.

Many of those stories have since been sewn together to create a full-length movie that will be shown at three separate performances over the Arizona Centennial week.

Because most of the storytellers are from the Beaver Creek communities, the premier will take place at the new multi-purpose building at Beaver Creek School on Feb. 14.

Plans call for a student presentation from 5:30 to 6:30 followed by an hour-long showing of the digital stories.

The Camp Verde premier will be on Friday, Feb. 17, at the Camp Verde School District Multi-Use Complex. There will be a reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by a showing of digital stories from 7 to 8.

A second presentation will take place at the Multi-Use Complex on Saturday at 2 p.m. and additional presentations are being planned during the Pecan, Wine & Antique Festival taking place that same weekend.

Copies of the digital stories will be available for a small donation. The centennial committee will be selling a cookbook printed in 1912, by the members of the Camp Verde White Ribboners, a group that advocated for prohibition.
