Veterans Day is an opportunity for communities around the country to recognize those who served our country. The Ak-Chin Indian Community offers great reasons to thank its veterans – a special event on Nov. 5, dining and golf deals on Nov. 11, and free movies.
The 17th Annual Ak-Chin Indian Community Veterans Recognition Day Celebration is Saturday, November 5, starting with a fun run/walk and a 5K run. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the run/walk sets off at 9 a.m. Runners and walkers start at the Ak-Chin Service Center on Farrell Road and go to Milton “Paul” Antone Regional Park. The first 150 participants receive free T-shirts, and 5K winners will receive awards.
Stick around for a full day of fun, including speakers, entertainment, and a free barbecue. Try your hand at the horseshoe tournament; the entry fee is $20. Contact Terry Enos for information at 520-510-5674. If spiking is more your thing, gather a team for the co-ed volleyball tournament. Entry fee is $75 per team. Contact Cecil Peters, 520-560-7814 for information.
