In Good Hands
The young inevitably inherit the earth from their predecessors. It’s heartening to know that the planet will be in good hands, judging from the 13 local youths recently selected to sit on the inaugural Anthem Youth Advisory Council. Ranging from seventh- to 12th-graders, these students bring enthusiasm and a spirit of community to their new roles. Tasked with engaging the area’s youth through their leadership and ideas, they’ll serve as positive role models for their peers while offering a fresh, youthful perspective to more seasoned leaders as they learn how local government operates. We’re excited to see how these bright young minds will help shape the future of 85086. In the meantime, learn more about these students on page 36.
On the subject of people offering up their time for community good: We’d planned on presenting our first philanthropy issue in November, and not surprisingly, 85086 has a wealth of people and organizations dedicated to doing good. Turns out that so many of you reached out that our team is still working on compiling and organizing all the amazing charitable stories that came across our desk! This also means that it’s not too late to bring our attention to even more locals involved in charitable endeavors. Tell us about them so that we can celebrate, amplify, and share their efforts with our readers. Please e-mail the details to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 5.
Now that we’re fully in the fall swing of things, we turn our attention to the many wonderful community events coming up, including the 10th annual Daisy Mountain Veterans Parade. The parade is one of the area’s signature events, and we hope that the entire community comes out to celebrate the local men and women who’ve served our country. For more details about the event, turn to page 40. Of course, 85086 Magazine will be on hand to chronicle the festivities, so if you encounter one of our photographers, please smile for the camera.
In the meantime, sit back with this issue for a taste—some of it literal—of everything local, including a lot of great tips, ideas, and recipes for a great Thanksgiving season.
Here’s hoping you and your family have a delightful month.
