Concho CAN! is dedicated to helping Concho be a good place to grow up and a good place to grow old.
Concho CAN! is proud to have represented Concho as a pioneer leadership site in the Arizona Community Foundation's Statewide 'Community For All Ages' Network. Click here for a power point presentation about the network.
In 2005, with a grant from the Arizona Community Foundation (ACF), Concho CAN! conducted a Community for all Ages (CFAA) survey which showed a groundswell of support for improving and increasing recreational programs, facilities and services. With CFAA funding from the ACF, Concho CAN! revitalized and improved the grounds at Concho Valley Lions' park and Concho Lake, created the Concho Activity Center, and organized a lunch and leisure program, an after school enrichment program, and established a calendar of Annual Community Events. Though some of these programs have been suspended due to a decrease in funding, many community events have continued through the support and contributions of local community organizations and volunteers. These events include holiday celebrations such as an Easter egg hunt, Holiday Bazaar, and Fourth of July picnic. Concho's first Memorial Day parade to honor war veterans was launched in 2006 and has become an annual event and a significant source of pride for this community. The outcome of this project has been a growing sense of community spirit and involvement for those who have come forward to lead and participate.
