My family over the years has used the Jones Center for many activities and have attended many functions to include Wedding receptions, board meetings for Youth Center, and activities for sports event by children were involved in.

My youngest son used the fantastic ice rink facitlity for 5
years as he was a hockey player on the Northwest Arkansas team.

Jone center provides a great service to the broader NW Arkansas community "free" for most services.

I want to thank all those who are board members, volunteers, or donors as my family has enjoyed the "Jones Center For Families for the last 10 years. Thank You Mike Russell.

My entire family was able to get flu shots in one place without an appointment for FREE at a time when my budget was stretched!. I likely would have left my 4 and 5 year old unvaccinated if not for the Jones Center

We feel very fortunate for an ability to be around Jones Center!

We are somewhat new in Fayetteville\Springdale area, and Jones Center has quickly became a very special part of our life. It provided for us not only an ability to participate in Russian Club of NWA gatherings, but such a
big variety of activities for children and adults as well! We are always delighted to be in this warm, welcoming, family oriented environment, provided by great team of workers and volunteers.

Considering that State of Arkansas is among the least wealthy ones in the nation, and the Resession althogether, - the Jones Center's free services, include an ice scating field and a pool, look more than incredible! Probably, it's a serious burden on Jones family and other sponsors of this venue, to keep it as it is. There certainly are sacrifices and cut offs behind the scenes, but Jones Center is always open, accessible and welcoming. We are very thankful to all people who do their best every day, so this place is the warmest corner of Northwest Arkansas!

My family and I have enjoyed many hours of ice skating, swimming, and birthday parties at the Jones Center. It is a wonderful community center that allows families and friends to come together in a safe, clean, and bright environment. Kudos to Jones Center for all you do.

The Jones Center has been an amazing resource for the community. I have taken my kids there for educational experiences like their Spring Break week (I also brought our family from out of town), our entire family went there for the flu shot, and I have held business meetings in their conference rooms. The Jones center is a well run center that is a bedrock for the community.

The Jones Center serves as a great gathering spot for the multicultural community of NorthWest Arkansas. The local Russian speaking community has been using the Jones Center facilities for several years now and many good memories were built here for our children.

Because we have access to
the Jones Center facilities we are able to conduct language classes for our kids and for anyone else interested in learning Russian. In addition to that, we participate in the yearly multicultural festival and celebrate Christmas here, Russian style.

The Jones Center for Families is a GREAT non-profit organization which in the best way serves our community in Northwest Arkansas. It has various kinds of facilities (pool, ice arena, classrooms, party area, computer lab, park etc.) and presents a variety of educational and multicultural events throughout the year. We really appreciate their effort in supporting the Russian Community by providing classrooms for our Russian School and rooms for our cultural events for the past 4 consecutive years. It’s a great place to visit and I would recommend it to everybody!

As a co-founder of Russian Speaking Club of NWA, I would like to express my gratitude towards Jones Center for families. Our organization was created 5 years ago and all our services are free. Because of the Jones Center we were able to provide all of our activities to the general public and because of Jones center we exist today. We teach Russian school every other Saturday, every year we set-up Chritsmas Tree plays for community, International Women's day celebrations, our administrative meetings and many other activites. Jones Center is almost our office and definately our home so far away from Russia!

Thank you so much for everything you do, Jones Center! We would not exist otherwise...

Jones Center is an outstanding organization serving families in NWA area. We had used it for multiple offsite events with my work, I got on the ice skating arena for the first time in my life thanks to Jones Center... however, most importantly, it gives resources and opportunities to families that they would have never had otherwise.. I am from Uzbekistan and my daughter attends Russian weekend school at Jones Center.. This is an outstanding opportunity for her cultural development and she got this opportunity because Jones Center gave local Russian speaking community a chance to use their facilities and resources for free. Many families can afford this for their kids. There are at least 20 families in the area who benefits from Russian Club activities thanks to Jones Center. Thank you!!!!

Our family moved to Northwest Arkansas 14 years ago. Shortly after our move we found out about Jones Center and started coming regularly with our children to enjoy the ice skating, swimming, and the gym. All the wonderful opportunities were provided free of charge. We also took some computer classes and used the computer lab, as well as the on-site childcare. The Center has always been very welcoming and family-friendly. We had several birthday parties for the kids there, and used the facilities for numerous gatherings and cultural performances. Jones Center has truly been an amazing experience for our family!
