Residents are encouraged to join Mayor Kevin Hartke and the Neighborhood Advisory Committee during his Mayor on the Move event held in West Chandler. Mark your calendar for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Kyrene de la Paloma Elementary School, 5000 W. Whitten St., outside in the amphitheater.
The event will kick-off with a City Expo starting at 5:30 p.m. The expo will have more than 15 booths representing several City departments and provides an opportunity for Chandler residents to ask questions and share feedback about city-related services or programs. Kyrene de la Paloma also will have an informational booth. The Mayor’s remarks will start promptly at 6 p.m.
“I enjoy every opportunity to connect with Chandler residents in their own neighborhood,” said Mayor Hartke. “November also is Native American Heritage Month, and I look forward to honoring their culture that night with special performances by Indigenous Enterprise. I encourage as many people as possible to join your City Council in West Chandler.”
Indigenous Enterprise is locally based group that educates the public about real-life Native Americans, sharing proud tradition and culture through powwow dancing. Attendees are in for a treat as their performances are high-energy with spectacular movements. In addition, the top three winners from October’s Miss Indian Arizona’s Scholarship Program will be in attendance.
The event is free. The Yellowman Fry Bread food truck will have Navajo tacos and fry bread with powdered sugar available for purchase starting at 5 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit and relax in a grassy area in front of the school’s amphitheater during the free performances. Residents may RSVP online. For more information or for questions related to the event, call 480-782-2243.
