Indian Gardens Cleanup
Friends of Oak Creek invite you to join them this 8:30 a.m. Saturday, August 24th at Indian Gardens to help clean up areas of Oak Creek. FOC members picked up 212 lbs of trash last Friday and between Thursday and Sunday, our 4 Oak Creek Ambassadors picked up 194 lbs of trash, 11.5 lbs of feces and 5 diapers. If that isn’t alarming enough, during 12 days of August the cumulative totals of trash removed by the Ambassadors was over 538 lbs, 26.5 lbs of feces and 16 diapers. Become an Ambassador and help us to help others recreate responsibly!

Dark Sky Efforts
SCF Nominations Sought
The Sedona Community Foundation (SCF) is seeking nominations for nonprofit of the year: volunteer of the year; business benefactor and philanthropist.
The OCWC was named nonprofit of 2012 and if you feel it has again excelled in its contribution to the community in 2013, or one of its volunteers has been exceptional in their service, this is your opportunity to honor them. The same goes for other nonprofits and volunteers throughout the area, too. Awardees will be recognized at a reception on Sunday, November 10, during the Spirit of Sedona Awards celebration at the Enchantment Resort. Nominators of the selected awardees will be invited to attend the award ceremony as well. In addition, award donations from the Foundation will be made in the names of the recipient to the greater Sedona nonprofit organizations each of them chooses.
