44th Annual City of Arcadia Mayor’s Community Breakfast
Featuring the State of The City Address
Friday, April 6, 2018 at 7:30 a.m., Arcadia Community Center
This year the City of Arcadia is partnering with the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce to host the 2018 Mayor’s Community Breakfast featuring the State of the City Address. This new take on the City’s featured event gives Arcadians a fresh opportunity to come together as a community and share in the spirit of our hometown. “We are excited to be partnering with the City of Arcadia to host the Mayor’s Community Breakfast,” said Arcadia Chamber CEO Karen Mac Nair. “Bringing the State of the City Address to this signature event in Arcadia is part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the City’s profile, and the Chamber and Foothill Credit Union are proud to be sponsors.” “The theme for this year’s breakfast is about Legacy,” said Mayor Peter M. Amundson. “Arcadia is great because of the devotion and dedication of those who came before us. As Arcadians, we each play a role in shaping the future of our community. I encourage
everyone to do their part to keep Arcadia great.” Mayor Amundson will speak further on the subject of “Leaving a Legacy” in his State of the City Address.
This year’s keynote speaker is former Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich who served Arcadia in the Fifth Supervisorial District from 1980 to 2016. His 36 years as a County Supervisor were characterized by his commitment to public safety, effective and responsive representation, support for small business, and addressing the needs of our County’s foster children, seniors, and veterans. Mr. Antonovich will share some of his views on the virtues of service and legacy.
Tickets to the event are $20 per person, with a breakfast buffet included. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Foothill Unity Center.
Reservations required by March 28. For additional information please contact the Mayor’s Office at 626-574-5403, or email mbuttice@ArcadiaCA.gov
