Renee Bahl, Executive Director of Arizona State Parks, sent the following letter to our publisher, Win Holden. Read it to learn more about the importance of our State Parks program and the Bluegrass in the Red Rocks event.
Congratulations! We applaud the efforts of the Benefactors of Red Rock State Park who have planned this exciting new bluegrass Festival on May 7 as part of the Annual Chamber Music Sedona series. With the support you have received from Arizona Highways and AAA Arizona, we know the Festival will attract many people from the Valley to the Sedona area. We appreciate the work of the Benefactors who are enthusiastic and hardworking and who volunteer daily to save Red Rock State Park for residents of Sedona, their children, and their grandchildren. This volunteer effort also benefits the tourism businesses that welcome these Sedona visitors who come to explore, hike and enjoy the park throughout the year. The Arizona State Parks Board encourages you to get your tickets early for the 5th Annual Bluegrass Festival.
