The Tri-Community Visitors Center celebrated its grand opening on Saturday March 2, 2013, at the Village Square in Oracle. The celebration included informational talks from local characters, groups promoting upcoming events and refreshments.

Village Square is located at 1995 West American Avenue.

Last September the Oracle Women’s Network (OWN) sponsored a community fundraiser called The Taste of Oracle. The event raised almost $3000 and the funds were designated to create a visitors center for the tri-community. OWN has achieved the beginnings of their vision and have formed a small community of volunteers working toward this goal.

Adrian Darimont has agreed to give the group a special rental agreement in his Village Square building. They will share a space that includes Adrian’s resale shop.

The Tri-Community Visitors Center will represent and promote Oracle, San Manuel and Mammoth.

The center’s mission statement is to encourage visitors to discover the beauty, art and amenities of the Tri-Communities. The center will be open to provide much needed resources and information to visitors and locals.

The resources will include not only business information, but information regarding the Arizona Trail, community events, local groups, organizations and churches.

Volunteers are needed to man the visitors center and can sign up now for three-hour time slots. If you have a business, or if you are involved in an organization in the Tri-Community, please call Sue Parra at 896-9200, or Sedona Sunrise at 400-8250 to get involved, volunteer your time or to get your information in the visitors center.

Please help us help our communities!
