Bridge Builders

Connecting Golden ValleyBridge Builders included people, institutions, organizations, or businesses who want to connect with others to improve the community or share similar interests.

Starting with ideas from Envision Golden Valley, Bridge Builders planted seeds for several initiatives that are blossoming today (see box at right).

Bridge Builders, where every connection
brings people together, every good idea is a
"small spark" that causes big things to happen,
and every gathering is a party!
