At the New St. James City Civic Association, our mission is to bring our community together and improve the quality of life for all residents. We believe that by working together, we can create a safer, more vibrant neighborhood that we can all be proud of.
Back in the early 1960's, a small group of hobby enthusiasts gathered at each other's homes to share ideas and chat. As the "Hobby Club" grew in members, so did the need for a central meeting place.
The ladies of the Hobby Club held fund raisers, solicited donations and negotiated the purchase of a parcel of land in Saint James City, Florida. The seller of the property generously donated one-half of their sale proceeds back to the fledgling organization to support our vision. Bids were submitted by local contracters to construct The Saint James City Civic Association (SJCCA) building and it was completed in 1964.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, the New St. James City Civic Association has been working tirelessly to rebuild our community and bring people together. We've come a long way since those early days, but we still have a lot of work to do. With your help, we can continue to make St. James a better place to live.
At the New St. James City Civic Association, we're proud to partner with a number of local organizations to help make our community a better place. These include local businesses, schools, and community groups. If you're interested in becoming a partner or learning more about our partnerships, please get in touch.
