In Case You Missed It: Friends of the Canoa Parks had an official meeting today! The turnout was amazing, and the community involvement in this effort is unbeatable! Thanks to all who joined us, and those who voiced their concerns and asked engaging questions!
Kimber Lanning, Founder of Local First Arizona Foundation, visited Green Valley, AZ today as our speaker for the Lunch & Learn; a collaborative effort of our GV/Sahuarita Chamber, GVC Foundation Economic Development Group, Az19, and Green Valley News. This effort was in attempt to help businesses and community members understand the significance of supporting the businesses we already have. Just a little sample of what’s to come at the Rural Policy Conference that’s being hosted right here in Green Valley, AZ August 2020!
We are so excited to bring you our new website with easy to follow links to learn all about our foundation and its programs!
The GVC Foundation and Pima County signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to form a friends group that would support the three Pima County public parks in greater Green Valley, that is, the Canoa Hills Trails walking paths, historic Canoa Ranch and Canoa Preserve, the site of the BAJA softball fields. The web site will launch on September 15, 2019. Memberships are being accepted now. Memberships will be renewed on an annual basis beginning on January 1, 2021.
The GVC Foundation was awarded a $2,000 Grant from the Greater Green Valley Community Foundation. The grant will help expand the concept of Mitzvah (Good Deed) Day as one of a number of volunteer days that the Foundation’s new Management Group—GOOD DEEDS DONE TOGETHER—will sponsor in 2019 and 2020. The first Volunteer Day will be held on Mitzvah Day, November 1, 2019. To volunteer click on Good Deeds Done Together Volunteer Sign-Up Button.
