Get to Know Your Neighbors at the 7th Annual G.A.I.N. Event and Taste of Goodyear


GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Sept. 16, 2010)  Meet your neighbors, learn how to make your neighborhoods safe, and enjoy a Taste of Goodyear at the 7th Annual G.A.I.N. Event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 16 at Goodyear Ballpark. There will also be plenty of family fun and entertainment, featuring arts and crafts, games, and bouncers for the kids. Free.


G.A.I.N. stands for Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods, and is Arizona's version of National Night Out. It's a time for neighbors to get to know one another, meet city officials and staff, and learn how to keep their neighborhoods safe.


Life-size custom crafted Western theme facades will be featured in this year's Neighborhood Village. More than 15 Goodyear neighborhoods are participating.


Goodyear Police and Fire departments will be onsite with impressive displays of equipment, including the Police Mobile Command Unit and motorcycles, SWAT vehicles, CSI van and technician, the VIP vehicle and several fire trucks. Stop into the Team Shop for one of several short "Safety Talks" about crime investigations, water conservation, CPR for families, and more.   


The K9 teams will perform throughout the day, demonstrating how they work with officers locating, chasing and holding suspects. K9 team dogs also help find missing persons and search out drugs and explosives.


Taste of Goodyear is back, offering free sample tastings of favorite foods and menu items. Don't miss this chance to savor the flavors of local eateries.


G.A.I.N. is made possible through the support of: Presenting Sponsor, Cancer Treatment Centers of America; Supporting Sponsors: Southwest Ambulance, Goodyear Police Officers Association, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians; Contributing Sponsors: Franklin Pierce University, Palm Gate RV & Storage, and Wood, Patel & Associates, Inc.
