Wednesday, Nov. 12, Downtown Vision Alliance held its first networking event, “Downtown After Work.” Hosted at Fionn MacCool’s at The Jacksonville Landing, about two dozen Alliance members, Downtown employees and business owners networked as they enjoyed delicious appetizers, drinks and an entertaining icebreaker. Attendees also heard from guest speaker Vince Cavin, executive director of Friends of Hemming Park, who talked about Hemming Park’s future plans and answered attendee questions.

This is one of several events organized so far for Alliance members and their friends, with more events to come. The Alliance is the 501(c)3 organization that serves as the charitable division of Downtown Vision, Inc. and supports improvements to make our Downtown sustainable, vibrant and prosperous. Alliance members are a grassroots army of Downtown supporters, advocates and doers. You can join us today for as little as $20.
