Angel Flowers By Layna & Beck-n-Call Says “I Know Jo, Do You?”

angel-flowers-01By Jo Mixon

Layna Harvey & Jo

Personal touches, fresh flowers, delivery service, and errands. Layna Harvey has lived in Angel Fire for exactly one year and already she is providing much needed services to help make life easier for Angel Fire residents. The first business she opened was Beck-N-Call Errand Services. In this business she offers grocery pick-up, dry cleaning and prescription pick-up in Taos, etc. etc. etc. Do you have errands that need to be run but don’t have the time? She is at your Beck-N-Call!

Now she has opened Angel Flowers by Layna. She told me she just sort-of stumbled upon this business. The previous owner had hired her errand services to pick-up fresh flowers for them. When he received a job offer in another area, he offered the business to Layna. She agreed. She has set up shop in her garage. Since Angel Flowers is without a store front at this time, simply check out her website for prices and ideas. Then call her to make your order. When I went to visit, I watched as a simple little vase quickly came alive with beauty as Layna worked her charm. All of her arrangements are custom made and personalized. She has arrangements for all occasions to fit your budget. And all of her arrangements are fresh flowers which she picks up weekly. She asks that you order at least 24 hour in advance and order early for the holidays. And she delivers to Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, Cimarron, Taos Pines, and Black Lake.

A really awesome fun thing she is going to do for Chamber members begins this week. We are going to put all of our member’s names into a hopper. Once a week, until December, we will draw a member name. This business (or individual) will receive a free arrangement from Angel Flowers. Then, at our Chamber Christmas Party, one of the main door prizes will be one floral arrangement per month from Angel Flowers for a full year! Wow!

Layna and her family came to Angel Fire from Texas where she was employed by the Lewisville School District for fourteen years. They had always vacationed in the Enchanted Circle area and decided they would move as soon as their children were grown. When her husband J.D. was offered a position with the Angel Fire Police Department, they put their house up for sale in Flower Mound, Texas. It sold in three days! Plus they found out, they didn’t really have to wait for the kids to grow-up because all of their children moved, too! Layna says “Life couldn’t be more perfect.”

Whether you need flowers or errands, just call Layna at 575-377-5827 or check out her websites at www.angelflowersnm.com and www.beckncall.com. Maybe you’ll be one of the lucky members to get a fresh floral arrangement in our weekly drawings in October and November!

Chamber News, Invites & Updates

newsletter-01By Jo Mixon, Executive Director

Last year at this time we were preparing for the first annual Holiday Lighting Contest sponsored by the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce and the Village Angel Fire Proud Committee. They have done an excellent job to insure the streets and businesses of Angel Fire are lit-up and festive during our holiday season. Once again we are asking everyone to participate by decorating your homes and businesses. The way we are situated in the Moreno Valley, our village is transformed into an amazing “snow globe” scene with the glistening snow and mountains as the backdrop. Not only are our guests pleased, but those of us who call this valley our home, enjoy the holiday spirit!

The Chamber again wants to add a little incentive. Who doesn’t like a friendly competition? The Holiday Lighting Contest offers two categories in which you may enter. The business category and the residential category. Within these two categories, three trophies will be awarded 1st Place, 2nd Place and People’s Choice. The cost to enter this contest is $25.00 for the business category and $10.00 for the residential category. Start now to plan your winning design. The deadline for entries is set for Friday November 21, 2014 but you don’t have to have your decorations up until Tuesday, December 2, 2014. Judging that will take place between Wednesday, December 3rd and Monday, December 8, 2014.

The location of all entries will be placed onto a map. These map handouts will be ready for distribution at the Angel Fire Chamber office on December 3rd. Judges will be randomly chosen from around the Enchanted Circle communities. EVERYONE is invited to judge the People’s Choice in both categories. For judging, the map handout will have a ballot for you to fill out. You will be asked to travel all over the Angel Fire area enjoying the beautiful decorations and then cast your vote for the ones you like the best. Make it a traditional family outing! Then bring your ballots to the Angel Fire Chamber or send them electronically to manager@angelfirechamber.org. One ballot per person/family is eligible for the vote.

The winner’s will be announced at the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce Business after Hours on Tuesday, December 9, 2014, to be held at the Sunset Grille. We invite everyone to get involved! Whether you are in Angel Fire, Black Lake, Taos Pines, a permanent or part time resident enter your home, enter your business, or even enter your organization (this would be considered a business). Once again the deadline for entry is Friday, November 21, 2014, judging begins Wednesday, December 3, 2014. Be prepared, enter the contest and Light-Up for the holidays!

We are also really excited about the new events coming to Angel Fire and those coming back to Angel Fire. The first annual Oktoberfest was a fun and different event that promises to get bigger and better every year. In February, be prepared to get involved with the four day Angel Fire Winter Carnival. Snow sculpture contests, shovel races, music venues, dummy races, and a snowman garden are just a few of the activities planned. Start now planning your float for the Mardi Gras Parade. Watch our calendars for all of the continuing annual events, plus be sure to get involved with the new events scheduled for next year. A few are: Memorial Day week-end we are holding a Chuck Wagon Cook-off, Father’s Day week-end, Balloons Over Angel Fire will once again grace our skies and the first week-end of August, be prepared for the first annual tamale cook-off, Habla Tamale. The entire community is being asked to pitch in and be part of these events. Please consider helping out. We need your expertise! It is going to take a lot of planning and preparation for these events to be successful. Volunteer, volunteer, volunteer! There will be something for everyone at all of these events. Food booths, music stages, kid zones, arts and craft booths and much more. But most of all coming together as a community to boost the economy of Angel Fire and the Moreno Valley and have lots of fun! For more information or questions about how you can volunteer, call Jo at 575-377-6353.

Also if you haven’t noticed, the leaves are changing all over the valley and in the canyons. If you are not in Angel Fire now, you should be! Fall is definitely arrived and we have the beauty to prove it!
