[MUSIC] [APPLAUSE]>>So what we have done and
what we have here is our Saint Rest Plaza. And the purpose and the goal of this plaza
is to bring about development, to bring about an understanding of sense of
community and what community is all about. For years, we have lived in a community
where it seems like we’re in a desert, a food desert, community desert,
and a unity desert. And the purpose of this plaza is to
show not just West Fresno but Fresno, what it means to have a community
that embarks on the same mission of bringing hope to a quote,
unquote hopeless community. We believe in righteousness, that the righteousness of God
is bigger than economic means. So we say as a community,
why not come together and do what other communities would do with less
community but with more economic dollars. So we have taken less dollars for
more community and built the exact same thing with
less money but with more people. We believe that when lives come together,
lives supersede dollars. Dollars come when you
have community together. So this is our plaza,
it’s an awesome place for people to come to have concerts,
proms, winter formals. Community comes together for
movie in the park. People come together for farmers market,
sweet potato farm, Jamba Juice. You name it, it’s coming to West Fresno. Congratulations West Fresno,
this is yours. [MUSIC]
