Visit the symphony this weekend for their Cala Festival, and enjoy the "vibrant musical offerings of our regional Latino community."  This Friday and Saturday, or check out their schedule for future shows.

Start planning now for GAIN
Do you want to get to know your neighbors better?  GAIN (Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods) is coming up on Saturday, November 5th.  This is the day the City of Mesa has set apart for neighbors to get together for block parties.  If you register your party with the city you might receive a visit from a city department (police officers, firemen, etc.)  We are excited to plan a neighborhood event for our street this year.  Getting to know your neighbors is a good idea for many reasons, including protecting our neighborhoods from crime by watching out for each other.  Go here for more information about how you can plan your own event.
