Co-Presenters: Michelle and Tony Giestlinger

The session looks at Longview's journey towards uniting its diverse community members, igniting its flagging volunteer base, and improving its old and crumbling or non-existent recreational infrastructure, guided by A.C.E Communities. It looks at some of the main obstacles and how they were overcome. It also looks at how the community can continue to grow and prosper in all areas of art, culture and recreational opportunities through A.C.E. and at some of the health and social benefits our residents have enjoyed from the project.
