The Arizona Children’s Association has been in the backyard of Apache Junction residents for more than a decade.
The association that started in 1912 has spent a century helping keep families together and even creating new ones. The regional office, 2066 W. Apache Trail Suite 101/112, opened in 2004 and does recruitment throughout the year for adults who are eager to become foster parents but they also do much more than that.

How cool would it be to think of something small you needed, and then “print” the item three-dimensionally and hold it in your hand? That is what students at three high schools will be doing, thanks to the San Tan Valley Think Tank and Pinal County Attorney’s Office.
Combs High School, San Tan Foothills High School, and Poston Butte High Schools received 3-D MakerBot printers which will help students learn to design, engineer, and then actually make small items, turning CAD files into physical objects “printed” in plastic or metal. Newer MakerBot models include ceramic, wood pulp, and even sugar as printing materials.
Banner Health will offer an open house to highlight its new “Banner Children’s Healthmobile” from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at Banner Ironwood Medical Center, 37000 N. Gantzel Road.
