I have witnessed first-hand a double digit increase in calls for service just in the first few days of summer vacation. This, from my perspective, is indicative of nice weather, perhaps a lack of things to do or simply a desire to garner attention from those that serve and protect. Regardless of the reason, it is imperative that we, as a community, continue to take a vested interest in what our children are doing, who they are hanging out with and do our best to ensure they stay active.
I spent a few minutes looking at the Chamber of Commerce calendar to see what activities are occurring that may be of interest. First and foremost, I encourage all residents, regardless of age, to stop by Starbucks on the Third Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. to meet with the Chief unbridled access to air concerns and offer compliments is a rare opportunity. The month kicks off on July 4th with the 63rd annual Damboree festivities; of course, you cannot afford to miss the world-famous pancake breakfast, offered by the Rotary Club of Boulder City. The Boulder City Museum hosts the Third Thursday Lecture Series where they share a piece of Boulder City’s history. This event kicks off at 6:00 p.m. at the hotel.
While I am unable to list all of the activities taking place, it is imperative to point out that nearly all of the events listed are staffed by committed members of our community that volunteer their time to make Boulder City the safest place to live, work, and visit. Perhaps, a spirit of volunteerism could ignite some enthusiasm amongst those people that play to the tune, “There is nothing to do in Boulder City.” I profess that there is plenty to do, you simply have to raise your hand in the spirit of volunteerism you will soon find you have more to do than time allows.
Until next month, stay safe and cool!
