It has been a busy month for the Paulden Area Community Organization, as the group plans for fundraisers, holiday gifting, a new retail development, and even a circus, according to PACO vice president Jerry Franklin.

PACO will host another of its pancake breakfasts on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Paulden Community Center, located at 24050 Marblehead Avenue, near the intersection of Hwy 89 and Big Chino Rd.

Cost for the breakfast, which in addition to pancakes includes beverage, and sausage or bacon, is $3. An alternate of biscuits and gravy is available for the same price, or a combination of all items for only $5.

Proceeds from the breakfast will go towards the PACO Holiday Gifting Program, which provides Safeway Gift cards to needy family's and seniors during the months of November and December.

PACO has been providing this service for the past five years. A second breakfast is also planned for Oct. 13 that will take the place of the postponed Fall Arts and Crafts festival.

According to Franklin, the festival was too labor intensive for the small organization, and he says the breakfast events that PACO has sponsored in the past have been well received by the community.

PACO also is preparing for the spring production of the Culpepper and Merriweather Circus that is planned for April 2013.

"Because of scheduling requirements, Culpepper and Merriweather are only available to perform here every two years," said Franklin. "They were last here in the spring of 2010 and it was fantastic. They put on two shows for about 1,000 people, and it was really well received."

Franklin said that ticket sales information, including group sales, will be discussed at an upcoming PACO meeting. PACO also will be looking for volunteers to assist with parking and other duties during the circus.

Information on Culpepper and Merriweather is available on line at www.cmcircus.com.

PACO meetings are held the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Paulden Community Center.

Family Dollar to move forward

The long discussed and debated retailer is ready to move forward, with a new Family Dollar location possibly opening by mid-2013.

"According to the Slater Hanifan Group, who handles the development of the Family Dollar stores, all they are waiting for is the rezoning of the property from the current RCU zoning to C-2," said Franklin, who has been in communication with Patrick Lowry, Director of Phoenix Operations for Slater Hanifan.

Lowry has not yet returned calls and emails from the Review for comment.

The property in question is located on the corner of Big Chino Rd. and Hwy 89, designated by Yavapai County Parcel No. 306-42-010M.

"What he (Lowry) tells me is that with the permitting process, the rezoning and all that, he can't give an exact time, but he's hoping maybe by next March they will be complete," said Franklin.

According to an email that Lowry sent to PACO, Family Dollar has approximately 6,800 discount retail locations in 44 states. Most are approximately 8,000-square-foot buildings.

Franklin encourages any who know of those in need to contact PACO by calling 928-636-0527 or by email to pldnareacommorg@gmail.com.
