Hi! And thank you for your interest in our neighborhood association. The Civic Center has been here in the South of Gandy Community since 1959!

2019 accomplishments

Railroad Repairs

We were able to motivate the neighborhood to send over 75 requests to CSX to repair the railroad tracks over Manhattan Ave and Westshore Blvd! With some help from our City Councilman Bill Carlson and the neighbors, we got it done! 

Benches at Bobby Hicks Park

For over 5 years, the neighbors have been requesting park benches to enjoy the views of this beautiful lake. With the help of Jason Marlow (legislative Aid of Councilman Carlson) and the GCC, we got them put in! 

Free Community Dinners

Every Thursday, we host a complimentary dinner for all to enjoy. We have neighbors, veterans, displaced individuals and families who have fallen on tough times come weekly for a meal. You are welcome to as well! 

Replaced 50+ Broken Street Lights

We ran a campaign on SOG Community Facebook Group. Encouraging the neighbors to report their out street lights. The response was overwhelming and the Teco responded quickly! 

1st Community Easter Egg Hunt

We hosted our first annual Easter Egg hunt this year! We thought we would have maybe 50 kids, but board member Lisa Chesser laughed at us! We had almost 300 kids attend! See you next year. 

Chamber of Terror Haunted House

This year, we brought the #2 Florida ranked and #7 nationwide ranked haunted house to our center. This ain't a backyard haunted house! This professional haunt is packed with screams, scares and all sorts of surprises! GRAND FINALE- FRIDAY THE 13TH, DECEMBER!
