Kick off the morning March 17 by meeting Tehachapi’s mayor, then head over to the Tehachapi Blood and Platelet Drive at nearby West Park to do a good deed.

From 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 17, the city of Tehachapi will host the next “Coffee with the Mayor” event at Kamenz Kafe (formerly the Coffee Mill), 120 S. Mill St.

“This has been a great way to stay connected to our community; we have some great conversations. The people who live and work here in Tehachapi get a chance to talk to us one on one, we listen to what they have to say and answer their questions,” said Mayor Phil Smith.

The event held on the third Thursday of each month was designed to create a comfortable setting for the community to engage with its local government, meet the mayor, council members, and city staff.

The Tehachapi Blood and Platelet Drive runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 17 at West Park, 490 W. D St.
