President of Oracle Womens Network (OWN), Alicia Bristow appreciates the volunteers that have helped expand the membership of the Oracle Womens Network (OWN) and their new plans for the Tri-Community Visitors Center. The new visitor center is going to be across the street from the Oracle Fire Department on American Avenue. The building was a Radio Station in the 1980s and was only in existence for two years. The property is owned by the Hillman family and they would like to see the building occupied. Liz Tuck from the Copper Corridor is helping with the non-profit designation for the visitors center.

“There is enough land on this site to have artist’s paint, put bird baths up, and bring some of their own artwork. We hope to help beautify American Avenue,” said Bristow. “There are many ideas and we will share the information and start to develop a plan. It will have to be in phases since we can’t afford to do everything at once,” she said. “We are working on an alliance with the Biosphere and our goal is to promote Oracle as a whole.”

Oracle has a lot to offer, not just the art tour, holiday market, guest ranches, jewelry makers, and Oracle State Park; the Oracle Women’s Group hopes to package Oracle so other people can experience some of the wonderful talents and businesses the town has. There is a possibility of a zip line coming in near the C3 Ranch. There would be at least two different zip lines.

Bristow presented John Predgo with an award for Volunteerism of the Year. John has helped the OWN out many times, and even though this is a woman’s group he is always willing and happy to help. Bristow hopes to continue to present a volunteer award once a year to an outstanding member that performs duties above and beyond.

The group depends on volunteers to help with the new visitors center. Some of the members have been touring different areas of Oracle so they can provide future visitors with appropriate information. Some of Oracle’s main attractions are: Acadia Ranch Museum, Arizona Trail, Oracle Ridge Hiking Trail, American Flag Ranch, Liberty State Park, Oracle State Park, Peppersauce Canyon Campgrounds, and the Southern Arizona Equestrian Center just to name a few.

The Oracle Women’s Network has a strong commitment to the community. They want to help beautify, inform and do what is necessary to see Oracle thrive! All of these women are driven and have what it takes to be successful! We wish them much success and happiness in the new endeavor!
