March 3, 2018 — On Wednesday, March 7, from 9 to 10:30 a.m., the Florence Area Community Coalition (FACC) will host Andy Grzeskowiak, superintendent of Siuslaw School District and Suzanne Mann-Heintz, president of the Siuslaw Education Foundation, to speak about current and future projects and events in local schools.
The Siuslaw School Board and the superintendent have established priorities in technology, graduation rates, career and technical education and facilities upgrades.
The Siuslaw Education Foundation is working in conjunction with the schools both in Florence and Mapleton, to raise funds to support these education priorities.
The featured agency for this month is KXCR Community Radio. Participants are invited to make donations to KXCR to keep this valuable community resource up and running.
KXCR offers commercial free radio to communities throughout the Siuslaw region.
Some programs are produced locally; others are subscribed to through networks of public broadcasting agencies. It takes about $20,000 per year to keep KXCR on the air.
FACC hosts meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at the Siuslaw Public Library. It also hosts an annual Volunteer Recognition Event, coming Wednesday, April 11, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Florence Events Center.
This year, FACC celebrates its 30th birthday. Plans are in progress for the second “Aging in Place Forum” on June 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Florence Events Center.
