Flowing Wells Neighborhood Association and Community Coalition celebrates accomplishments on Oct. 18by Pima County News on Oct. 17, 2012, under Parks & Recreation, Pima County, Public Library, Southern Arizona, Tucson
The Flowing Wells Neighborhood Association and Community Coalition (FWNACC) will celebrate 17 years of remarkable accomplishments on Thursday, October 18, 2012.
The festivities coincide with the FWNACC monthly general meeting at 6 p.m. at the Ellie Towne Flowing Wells Community Center, 1660 W. Ruthrauff Road. Dr. Nic Clement, Superintendent of the Flowing Wells School District, will be the featured speaker.
The community center is just one of the projects that have grown from the efforts of local residents who banded together in 1995 to address common concerns about the safety and quality of life in their neighborhood. The Ellie Towne Flowing Wells Community Center, named for the dynamic leader of the coalition, is also the home of a health center, and the Flowing Wells Branch Library is located across the street from the community center.
Both Flowing Wells District Park and Curtis Park were developed in partnership with Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation to provide sports opportunities and outdoor enjoyment to local residents.
Sharon Bronson, Pima County Supervisor for District 3, has been a strong ally of FWNACC and has supported their efforts to add valuable amenities to the community. Building close working relationships with other partners, including the Flowing Wells Unified School District, social service agencies, faith-based entities, and the local government, has resulted in over $75 million in goods and services for the people that FWNACC serves.
The FWNACC has worked hard for over 17 years to make a real difference in the quality of life of its residents. You and a neighbor are welcome to join them for complimentary food and beverages as they celebrate the results of their efforts.
