Prescott Western Heritage Foundation: Barrett is a proud sponsor again this year of the 5th Annual Western Heritage Banquet on Saturday, October 28 at the Prescott Resort. The goal of this event is to raise awareness in the community regarding our western heritage and to preserve, promote and educate residents and visitors about our history. Dinner and silent auction will occur.
Season Opening of the Northern Arizona Suns: Barrett is proud to support the team and their games for this second season in Prescott Valley. This NBA minor league team of the Phoenix Suns created many fans last year and we will be providing ticket giveaways again this year through our Facebook page. So make sure you go and like us there to enter to win!
Prescott Veteran’s Parade: Come downtown Prescott for the annual Veteran’s Day Parade and see our Veteran’s Tank Truck go by! We’re proud to donate to local Veteran’s organizations every year through a penny per gallon that is pumped through this truck.
Prescott Christmas Parade: Arizona’s Christmas City is alive with a festive parade starting at 1pm in downtown Prescott. Enjoy fabulous floats, pets and even people as they march down around the Courthouse to celebrate the start of the Christmas season.
Prescott Courthouse Lighting: After the parade, as the day turns to night, the beautiful Courthouse Lighting ceremony begins with carolers on the Courthouse steps. A countdown begins to trigger the switch and the Plaza Square suddenly becomes a festive scene with almost every tree sparkling with beautiful lights.
New YEar’s Eve Whiskey Row Boot Drop: Whiskey Row becomes a street party New Year’s Eve with the 7th Annual Boot Drop. Watch a 6-foot illuminated Cowboy Boot slowly be lowered down The Palace Building’s flagpole to ring in 2018. Two “drops” at 10pm & midnight. Barrett Propane has been a major sponsor of this free, family-friendly event for the past several years.
In fact, we are donating a penny for every gallon we pump through this truck to the BreastCare Center at YRMC. For the year ended September 30, 2016, we donated $3,966.45 to the BreastCare Center at YRMC.
We’re also proud of our Veterans’ truck. It operates in much the same manner as our pink truck in that a penny per gallon pumped through the truck is donated to local Veteran’s causes. The artwork on the truck recognizes all branches of our military with land based operations on one side and air and sea on the other. We’ve proudly raised more than $5000.00 over the past two years for local Veteran assistance.
