 Randy Johnson of Gold Canyon Pharmacy was our guest speaker. Gold Canyon Pharmacy, an independent pharmacy, opened their doors across the street from Walgreens in July, 2018. They offer medication management and compounds, and strive to save you money on your prescriptions through drug cards and coupons. Randy is a Quality of Life advocate, urging people to take their meds in the right dose, allowing them to enjoy their lives. He has lectured on many topics, including opioids and nutrition for children who may not have the means to eat as healthy as they should. This educated chemist is a valuable asset to our community! Seek out his advice regarding your medical challenges.

 Myra Garcia, Executive Director of the Apache Junction Food Bank, spoke about the Food Bank's mission to help people get through bad times. The Postal Service food drive brought in 39,000 pounds of food, and 279 volunteers have given 19,000 hours of their time. Kristen Gonzales, who serves on the board, wants to promote the food bank's message through social media. A new project is underway to teach people how to use their food nutritiously. They have four nutritionists helping with this effort. They are also working on a grant to fund the acquisition of a new truck.
Dr. Krista Anderson gave an update on the 60 million dollar capital improvements bond issue. There is a great need for updated textbooks, as well as for maintenance at the schools, including repairs to sidewalks, locker rooms, the high school track and air conditioning units. Consideration is also being given to reopening the Superstition Mountain Elementary School, to meet changes in demographics. An Advisory Oversight Committee is being put in place to make sure the money is spent where it is supposed to.
