Aside from Turkey Day, November has a multitude of other events and important dates, one of those being Veterans Day. This month, our “On the Lowe Road” column focuses on the Code Talkers of WWII. During the war, Navajo and other Native Americans transmitted battle messages in their tribal languages by telephone. Interesting fact: among the 350+ Code Talkers who served, some were only 15 years old.  

Inside this issue you will also find the Fall/Winter edition of Arcadia Home & Design, our seasonal, home-centric magazine. The cover story is about Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West and its recent designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s an incredible honor, as there are only 24 sites in the United States and just two in Arizona (the other is the Grand Canyon).  

The Shemer Art Festival and Camelback Studio Tour are happening this month, along with the Arizona Fall Fest presented by Local First and Canal Convergence, which means its time to get out there and support local businesses and artists. 

Arcadia neighbors will be heading to Hopi Elementary for this year’s G.A.I.N. picnic event on November 2. This will be G.A.I.N.’s 21st year and the festivities have promised to be prehistoric, thanks to the Dino Crew who will be on the scene. Arcadia News will also be there – stop by and say hello!
