2018 G.A.I.N. Event

THE ANNUAL G.A.I.N. EVENT, or Getting Arizonans Involved in Neighborhoods will take place Saturday, October 20th, 2018. Across the US, other cities hold “Our Night Out”, to inspire residents to get involved in their neighborhoods in August. As August isn’t a prime time for Phoenicians to be outside, Phoenix developed this event to be held in October to involve our residents. This year we will present a breakfast at Walton Park, 3rd Avenue and Monte Vista/Holly. We will tentatively be serving pancakes and breakfast burritos, along with coffee and juice. Going back to our roots from many years ago, we will invite our neighbors from Encanto Palmcroft, FQ Story and Roosevelt to join us. We will also send invitations to our councilwoman, Laura Pastor, our Mayoral Candidates, and our congressman Ruben Gallego. This is a great chance to speak to your elected officials, neighbors, Willo Board members and have a great breakfast cooked right here in the neighborhood. Mark your calendars – this is also the date for our Fall yard sale, October 20th beginning at 7:00 am.Details to follow online at www.willoPHX.com and the October issue of Inside Willo.
