The town of Queen Creek will host an event for graduates of its Citizen Leadership Institute program on Friday, Jan. 22, at the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center. Graduates will receive a complimentary ticket to attend the world-class “Shanghai Circus”; additional tickets are available for purchase at a special rate of $15.

More than 400 individuals have graduated from the award-winning Citizen Leadership Institute, and this special event will provide a unique opportunity for graduates to mingle with one another during the “mingle hour” immediately before the performance, according to a press release.

“We appreciate the time that community members invest to complete the Citizen Leadership Institute,” Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney said in a release. “It is important that we continue to foster a strong relationship with those individuals, and provide opportunities for graduates to connect outside of the program. We are excited to partner with the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center to provide this unique evening.”

Initiated in 1995, CLI is designed to engage residents through informative sessions about the town. The program provides an avenue for residents to help plan the community’s future and inform residents who are interested in serving as local leaders on a board or commission. CLI is free, and open to anyone who lives or works in the Queen Creek area; however, most town committees require residency in the town limits. The next session of CLI will begin in the fall.

The Queen Creek Performing Arts Center is at 22149 E. Ocotillo Road. To reserve complimentary tickets and purchase additional tickets, call the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center at 480-987-7469 and use promotion code CLI. Tickets are first-come, first-served.
