What's new at the Canyon Country Community Center this month?Our community is comprised of people from many different backgrounds and cultures. To celebrate our diversity, residents should be on the lookout for an exciting new event series debuting this April at the Canyon Country Community Center.

Residents are always looking for engaging and exciting events to attend in our city. Can you give us a sneak peek of what's to come for April?
As a father of four, I am always looking forward to attending events that my kids and I can enjoy together. One of my go-to events and a community favorite is back! SENSES Block Party celebrates the "Wild West" on April 21, beginning at 7pm. Residents can saddle up for a night out with food, music and entertainment for all Western enthusiasts. Bring your friends and family to the heart of Old Town Newhall and enjoy a night out on Main Street. The night will kick off with a live performance by the featured guest band Dirty Cello. Attendees will relish in the live five-piece string ensemble and dance the night away to the sound of the lead cellist. As always, there will be music, dancing and delicious food options to engage each of your senses throughout the event. For our 21-and-up crowd, one of our local restaurants will serve cocktails. There will also be a mechanical bull, games, local vendors and so much more to enjoy with friends and loved ones. If you're a big cinema fan like me, join us as we celebrate two new inductees to our Walk of Western Stars this month, too. Be sure to be on the lookout for more details to come, on

It seems like the headlines are full of smash-and-grab robberies and other brazen crimes these days. How can the #9PMRoutine help protect our valuables?
Ensuring the safety of our residents remains a top priority. The City of Santa Clarita continues to remind residents about the #9PMRoutine. The routine ensures that you and your family take the extra steps needed to protect your belongings. After a long day at work, I understand that staying on top of the #9PMRoutine can be left at the bottom of your list. Making these minor adjustments a part of your daily routine pays off in the long run - such as locking your car doors, ensuring your valuables are kept out of your vehicle and your home's exterior lights are working. Removing valuables from your car and installing motion-sensor lights are crucial preventative measures that keep would-be burglars away. For more information and other tips, search the #9PMRoutine on social media.
