November/December 2011 - Joe Pizzillo, Councilmember

Events and places that give us a "feeling of community" are what makes Goodyear great.  Each year that list seems to grow.  This year brought the opening of the Goodyear Food Bank which is truly the community coming together to help each other.  I am very proud to see such a worthwhile organization in our city that will bring so much good to those in need.  Recently, Goodyear in Action Day (GIA) was held and was more successful than ever in getting our citizens out to exercise and participate in healthful activities.  Goodyear in Action is strictly citizen based and grew out of an idea formulated by several of our citizens after participating in our All-America City award presentation in 2008. Additionally, the City of Goodyear and the Town of Litchfield Park recently graduated 11 Goodyear and 2 Litchfield Park citizens from our joint Citizens Academy where they learned how the city works and how citizens can contribute to their community. I especially like one of the comments I heard that a citizen made at graduation, "I feel proud to be a resident of Goodyear."

One of the biggest community events in our city is G.A.I.N., put together each year by a large citizen committee with support of our Goodyear Neighborhood Division. It was spectacular and really represents that "community feel" we all want. Every year for the past 8 years it has gotten bigger and better with more than 5,000 people in attendance this year.  The Taste of Goodyear was the best yet and really highlighted our restaurants. With so much going on at the event, adults and kids were all having a ball. I can't say enough about the wonderful job the committee did and want to thank them and all the other volunteers and staff who put in so many hours making this such a success.  G.A.I.N. is an event that gives you a really good feeling and makes you say to yourself, "I'm really glad I live in Goodyear."
