2017 Arcadia BBQ Picnic

Rita's Italian Ice and the Balloon Man were only a small part of the fun, food and games enjoyed by our neighbors.

Rita's Italian Ice and the Balloon Man were only a small part of the fun, food and games enjoyed by our neighbors.

Nearly 400 Arcadia neighbors gathered on Saturday, October 28th at the Shemer Art Center for a sunny afternoon BBQ and picnic to celebrate G.A.I.N. (Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods).  G.A.I.N. events are collaborative efforts among neighbors and first responders to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity.  In that spirit, ACMNA teamed up with Arcadia Osborn Neighborhood Association (AONA), along with our local police and fire departments to host a free entertaining family-friendly event.

Not only did neighbors have the opportunity to catch up with each other and our first responders, but were also able to meet and chat with State Senator Kate Brophy McGee, Phoenix Councilwoman Kate Gallego, State Representative Maria Syms, Councilman DiCiccio's Chief of Staff Sam Stone, Mt View Police Commander Anthony Vasquez, CEVPC Chairman Jay Swart and the ACMNA and AONA Board members. 

 ACMNA board member, Brian Flader, who led the planning and organization of the event, credits the event's success to strong engagement of Arcadia's Police Department, Fire Department and the support of community stewards such as  Shemer Art Center and SRP.  We also very much appreciate our sponsors Rita's Italian Ice, Chick-fil-A Phoenix Scaffolding,  A to Z Equipment Rentals and SpeedPro Imaging.
