Since 1982, the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's mission of strengthening, promoting and serving its member businesses has positively benefited the entire region and local quality of life. The Angel Fire Chamber represents over 200 members who employ approximately 1,000 workers who account for millions of dollars in economic impact in Angel Fire and the surrounding areas of Northern New Mexico. This is accomplished without tax dollars, as the Angel Fire Chamber is supported strictly by membership revenues. Serving as a unified voice, the Chamber advocates for pro-business issues affecting member businesses on the local, state, and national levels.
We are proud to feature a news or one of our member businesses in the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's exclusive "I Know Jo" Campaign. This campaign started as a way for our Executive Director, Jo Mixon, to get to know the membership in 2011. It has, over the past years, become one of the favorite news/advertising events in Angel Fire. The catch phrase being, "I Know Jo, do you?" She visits a different Chamber member to learn about their business. She then shares information in a story she writes for our Weekly Chamber Monday Memo e-Blast.
This e-Blast is sent out to thousands of people on our mailing list. She also posts the story on our Face Book page.i
Angel Flowers by Layna and Beck-N-Call Errand Services says,

Layna Harvey and 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. 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 in Taos. When he received a job offer in another area, he offered the business to Layna. She agreed.
As of now she has set up shop in her garage. Since Angel Flowers is without a store front at this time, so 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 but 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 a one floral arrangement per month from Angel Flowers for a full year! Wow!!
She 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 and it sold in three days! Found out they didn’t really have to wait for the kids to grow-up because all of their children moved, too! They live all live in Angel Fire or Red River. Layna says “Life couldn’t be more perfect”.
Whether you need flowers or errands, just call Layna! 575-377-5827. Check out her websites at www.angelflowersnm.com and www.beckncall.com. And maybe you’ll be one of the lucky members to get a fresh floral arrangement in our weekly drawings in October and November!
