EDC Honors VISTA's Commitment to Service

In recognition of AmeriCorps VISTA’s 50th anniversary and the Fresno County Economic Development Corporation’s 10th year as anVISTA host site/intermediary, Fresno County EDC honored its VISTA members at its quarterly Board of Directors meeting on February 26, 2015. VISTA members joined EDC staff and board of directors at the CRU Club at Chukchansi Park where they were honored and presented with certificates of appreciation for their impact in Fresno County. Today and every day at the Fresno County Economic Development Corporation we Celebrate VISTAs long legacy of positive change in the Central Valley.
