Make a Difference Day
October 27, 2018  7:30 AM 
Make a Difference Day 
The Annual “Make a Difference Day” was held in October and was an opportunity for the entire community to come together and offer 4 hours of volunteer service to vulnerable, elderly, or home bound residents at a variety of work projects throughout Fountain Hills. People were painting, cleaning, patching, planting, raking, hauling debris and much more…every contribution made a difference…neighbor helping neighbor! We began the day at Golden Eagle Park  for juice, coffee, fruit and pastries where volunteers received their assigned work site project and “kick-off” information.
  Contact Paul Appeldorn for more information.

Clowns for Christ Ministry 
In 2012 a professional clown from Minnesota, Sid Teske, spent two weeks
