The SGCEDC believes that connection to the community is absolutely essential to economic development. People have to love where they live! Southern Gila County offers wonderful opportunities for people to connect.
The Elder Quality of Life (EQL) committee for the SGCEDC is a great example of one of those opportunities. The first Friday of every month they offer discount movie tickets to Seniors at Hollis Theatres in downtown Globe. Tickets are $4.00 for those 60 years and older. Local businesses sponsor the discount. Below is a list of some of those sponsor businesses. Please support them!

Connection to Place
Recent studies demonstrate the importance of creating communities where people feel connected. The Knight Foundation’s Soul of the Community Study discovered that communities where residents had the highest feelings of belonging and attachment to their community also had the highest GDPs. Community pride and loving where you live are core values of the Southern Gila County Economic Development Corporation!
