Hello Friends,

Summer has arrived, and now we are wishing for April temperatures. Outdoor activities in the summer months, should occur before noon or ideally no later than 10 a.m. As usual, keep hydrated as heat exhaustion or worse, heat stroke, can come on quickly, and we don't want to deal with either of these conditions.

I have become aware of some disturbing news that some residents are acting in an aggressive manner and saying some unkind things to others. I will remind you that this is a childlike way to handle disputes and, if necessary, one can be called to a hearing for violations of our code of conduct policy which states “residents and guests will refrain from any loud, profane, inappropriate or abusive language.” In addition, our code states “residents shall not physically or verbally abuse, harass, or accost any other resident, their guests or management staff.” We are all adults; so, please act accordingly. I expect that by fall, we will have begun remodeling work on areas of the Community Center that were not addressed since our last major upgrade. Feedback is almost universal that what we did to our Community Center was well worth the investment. I continue to strongly believe that we must remain competitive with the new housing construction being built around us, and the influx of new residents and quick sale of homes in Sun City Aliante suggests our community remains a desirable place to live for many reasons including the modern look we have. Please stay safe, and as always, I look forward to seeing you enjoying all that we offer. Respectively, Warren M. Geller President, Sun City Board of Directors

BOARD MESSAGE

Edward (Ed) Ernest

In January of 2017, my wife and I were looking for a residence in Las Vegas. After much searching, her son recommended looking in an active 55 plus community which led us to Sun City Aliante. After being snowbirds f o r a y e a r, w e m o v e d h e r e permanently. With Sun City Aliante offering over 40 clubs and interest groups we were sure to find activities of interest, and we did.

What else can I say but check The Breeze for events and free seminars and the Events Wall for upcoming activities, including monthly movies, social dances, community events, entertainment and sporting events and become involved. Hockey season has ended but the Aviators and Aces will have tickets available and be ready for the fall with Golden Knights hockey, UNLV football and UNLV women's basketball. Do you want to volunteer for a service group? We have Seniors With Warm Hearts, Seniors Helping Seniors, Community Patrol, Veterans and Veterans Auxiliary, to name a few. Also do not forget our fitness classes, including Zumba, water aerobics, strength and balance, and yoga. The fitness gym has a nice selection of workout equipment. There are outdoor activities including, basketball, tennis, pickleball, horseshoes and bocce ball. Are you artsy? There are several craft offerings from ceramics to sewing to glass crafting and others to enjoy in our three craft rooms. One room many people do not know about is the library and computer room. Books are free to checkout. Computer logins are available from the Front Desk. The Breeze also has a free Lunch 'n' Learns and Snack 'n' Learn, along with variety of vendor advertisements. Please check them out if you have needs ranging from wills, trusts, insurance, home repairs and many more. We have found this to be a friendly community. Sun City Aliante is a place to make friends and be active. All you have to do is take the first step by reviewing the Charter Clubs as listed in The Breeze and contact the listed person. Respectfully submitted, Edward (Ed) Ernest Director, Sun City Aliante Board of Directors

ATTRACTIVE DESERT LANDSCAPING TO BRING A NEW LOOK TO THE COMMUNITY CENTER

Hello Residents, I am very excited to announce the Board of Directors approved a major landscape conversion project for Sun City Aliante on July 13, and we anticipate the completion of the project by midNovember. As a result of a new Nevada law to remove purely decorative, “nonfunctional” grass throughout the Las Vegas Valley by the end of 2026, the Board tasked Management and the Property & Grounds Committee to develop a desertscape conversion plan. For the past nine months, we have worked with multiple vendors to develop a plan that would complement the landscaping done during the Expansion & Enclosure Project. Our Developer's Agreement requires some landscaping in all common areas; therefore, we have to submit a new landscape design to the City of North Las Vegas for approval to ensure we are in compliance with the Developer's Agreement. Considering the fast-growing housing developments around Sun City Aliante, it was important to create a design that would display a “WOW” factor. Our goal was to create desert landscaping, which was unique, attractive, and inviting and would bring a whole new look to the common areas. The major areas that will be converted include: the grass area in front of the water feature and sign (at the intersection of Aliante Pkwy. and Elkhorn); the grass area on N. Aliante Pkwy.; the grass area at the front of the Community Center; the grass area behind the Vista Room; and new landscaping to the rock area next to the pool. Here are some of the elements we will use to create the new desertscape: •

Two attractive soaring bird sculptures, matching the Aliante logo, will be positioned in front of the water feature, along

• •

Aliante Pkwy. and Elkhorn. Another bird sculpture will be positioned toward the front of the Community Center. Each one will have two spotlights to accent the pieces. Fifteen (15) large bronze-colored planters containing Agave Century Plants will be placed in multiple locations throughout the Common Areas. Colored glass and spotlights will add a distinctive artistic aspect to the planters. A dry river rock bed, resembling wistful accent “waves” will add an attractive element. Colored glass accents will be placed adjacent to the river rock bed. An array of beautiful desert plants and cacti will be placed throughout the areas including, Artichoke and Caribbean Agave, Blue and Red Yucca, Golden Barrell Cactus, Purple Prickly Pear Cactus, Mexican Bird of Paradise, Fire Barrell Cactus, and more. Mexican Fence Posts will stand along the front walls of the Community Center with accent lighting. Purple and Red Crape Myrtle trees will be placed in multiple locations throughout the converted areas.

I encourage you to visit the Sun City Aliante website at www.suncityaliante.org to view a design presentation and see the beautiful new desert landscaping for yourself. Once you are on the site, select the Blue Box labeled News Flash to view the illustrations. We will realize many benefits from the conversion project. Our HOA will receive a rebate of more than $20,000 from the Southern Nevada Water Authority. Also, we will experience water savings of approximately $6,500 annually. Finally, I want to recognize and express my sincere appreciation to the members of the Property & Grounds Committee; Assistant Manager, Nelenie Hernandez; and Facilities Manager, Juan Macias - who all worked tirelessly on this project. Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe! Damian Carrasco, General Manager Sun City Aliante

Dear Residents,

Hello Residents,

Sold Out Audiences

During August, some of my favorite summer delights are in season, such as, watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches, cucumbers, corn, eggplant, and tomatoes. The heat can be discomforting, but a refreshing cold-water drink infused with cucumber or a blended watermelon cocktail, along with a fresh salad garnished with corn, tomatoes and bell peppers makes my summer reading by the pool so

Even with sizzling summer temperatures, we have seen a record number of participants attending our events! Sold out tickets for chartered buses, going to what is happening in Las Vegas, record numbers of residents enjoying box office movies are now common (110 +), and wait lists for Lunch n' Learns are the new trend. I encourage you to remember your childhood enthusiasm for summer and go on our adventures! The Sun City Aliante Lifestyle Department gives you an experience that creates memories. Do not miss out and sign up early for these exciting events! It is wonderful to see so many residents doing things that they enjoy making their lives more pleasurable. Highlights last month included, Dinner and a Show with Jen Kramer – Magician at the Westgate Las Vegas, having our picture taken with the cast of Menopause the Musical, standing on the official basketball court of the Las Vegas ACES for a group picture, flying over the Wild West and Iceland in an innovative immersive ride on the Las Vegas Strip. Music Bingo was fun in our own backyard Vista Room with name that tune. We were all “Happy Together” at THE SMITH CENTER in the audience enjoying legends such as Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, The Cowsills, The Association, The Vogues, The Buckingham's, and…The Turtles. As you will see in this edition of the Breeze Magazine, pictures that captured the essence of each event. Strangers become friends, friends renew friendships, building a strong community, all while enjoying life in the most exciting city in the world.

much better.

I am sure you all have your favorite summer activities and have been enjoying them. The Community Center has a packed schedule with many activities and outings around the city. Lately, so many activities have been selling out. At the movie night showing Father Stu it garnered over one hundred attendants. Wow! I encourage new and seasoned residents to continue to participate in all of our events and get involved in our many committees and clubs. I know walking around the community with your dog is a popular activity, or maybe a chore, for some residents. As a reminder, please walk your dog on a leash and do not let your pet roam around the golf course. The golf course is not their playground. The golf cart pathway is not a bicycle pathway nor is it a hiking trail. Please refrain from using the pathways unless you are playing golf and/or in a golf cart. Age-Verification Survey Forms are due this month. Thank you to the many residents who had already turned in their forms. If you need a form, please stop by our office and pick one up. Our office will start sending out violation notices for those residents who have not submitted their forms. If you have a tenant residing in your property, please make sure they submit the form. If your property is vacant, please remember to submit the form yourself. Now that summer is in full swing, the hot weather will surely motivate many of you to enjoy the Community Center pool. Why would you not? We have an awesome pool area! Swimsuits are required for all residents and their guests. If you bring children as guests, they must be over 42” tall to swim in the pool. The pool is open to children under age 18 from noon to 2 p.m. daily ($2 fee per child). Children are not permitted in the spa or sauna. Please make sure they have appropriate swim trunks and/or suits. No shirts or cut-offs are allowed to be worn, while in the pool or spa. Please be courteous to one another while enjoying our facilities. Also, please remember these pool tips: • Please shower before and after swimming in the pool/spa/sauna area • No food, glass containers or alcoholic beverages are permitted in the area • No diving, jumping, splashing, or running is allowed in the pool/spa/sauna area • Please bring a towel whenever you use the pool facilities Fun Fact: August 3 is National Watermelon Day. August 19 brings National Aviation Day, chosen for the birthday of Orville Wright who piloted the first recorded flight of a powered heavierthan-air-machine in 1903.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Hello Residents,

Happy August! I think how fortunate we are to enjoy the comfort of air conditioning during the toasty summer months in Las Vegas. We take the air conditioner for granted but imagine what life would be like without it. Once considered a luxury, this invention is now an essential to cool homes, businesses, hospitals, data centers, and other buildings vital to our economy and daily lives. One of the greatest mechanical engineering achievements of the 20th century also has a fascinating history. Historical Air Conditioning Facts Many Tried And Failed - Man has attempted to create air conditioning for nearly 2,000 years. In the second century, a Chinese inventor named Ding Huane was the first person ever to craft a manually powered rotary fan. Due to the heavy demand for manpower, which in itself heated the room, the invention never caught on. Benjamin Franklin conducted experiments on evaporation and alcohol to prompt freezing temperatures in the mid-1700s. However, the first modern unit was not brainstormed until the 1900s. Ice Makers Did Not Like The Invention – In the 1840s, a Florida doctor, John Gorrie, contracted to have massive blocks of ice transported from frozen lakes in the north to chill hospital rooms, but getting ice to the south was obviously unreasonable. He later devised a machine that made ice using horsepower with wind-powered sails or steam, but his idea fizzled with no financial backing. The Emergence Of Carrier - The invention date of AC is officially 1902 and credited to Willis Carrier, an engineer in Buffalo, NY. Carrier was tasked with solving a humidity issue at a Brooklyn publishing company that struggled with extreme heat compromising their prints. The patent was called an “Apparatus for Treating Air.” The invention used cooling coils to either heat or cool water, depending on the humidity. An unintentional side effect was how comfortable workers were with the chilled condition. The success of his apparatus led Carrier to form his own engineering corporation, which remains the biggest manufacturer in the world. Cooling Spread Fast - Following its creation, AC was popularized very quickly. Initially, only industries concerned about weather conditions threatening their product adopted Carrier's equipment. In 1904, the St. Louis World's Fair utilized mechanical refrigeration for their fair events. The same year, theaters began incorporating the system into their facilities. An issue where humid air rose was later resolved in 1922, when higher vents were placed in theaters, equally distributing comfortable temperatures. Competition Rises – Several companies and inventors flocked to the HVAC scene following the success of Carrier's engineering. General Electric patented 32 prototypes in 1930, including the first implementation of coolants into their units. The following year, H.H. Schultz and J.Q. Sherman brainstormed the first room air conditioner — a window ledge installation similar to modern-day. Modern Miracle - In 1947, 43,000 air conditioners were installed. Within a decade, it was standard for most American homes to be equipped with the unit. As time progressed, air conditioning decreased heat-related death in the USA by 80%. Today's unit still incorporates the same science as Carrier's original system, including operations via vapor compression, materials, and energy efficiency. However, advancements improved a quieter machine. Remote thermostats and sophisticated energy usage capabilities allow users to adjust functionality with a computer or cell phone. Hopefully knowing a bit about the history will give you an appreciation of just how lucky we are to have modern air conditioner units keeping us living cool! If you have any questions about The Breeze, Seminars or eBlast, please contact me at 702-429-1623. Enjoy the rest of the summer and stay cool! Trish Williamson Editor, The Breeze

MAYOR PRO TEMPORE RICHARD CHERCHIO I hope everyone is having a happy and safe summer. I want to mention some of the projects in which I am involved representing our Ward 4 residents, like yourselves, in our truly beautiful community of Sun City Aliante. We continue to have restaurants opening in our city, along Craig Road, that residents have requested. If I were to pick out a couple of projects I truly feel passionate about, one would have to be the future Job Creation Zone, which will be located on the west side of Pecos between Centennial Parkway and the Interstate 215, across from the Veteran's Administration Hospital. It will consist of approximately 137 acres of businesses and services that will provide our residents the ability to dine out, shop, access medical services, and much more. Now, for the most part, we have to travel outside our community and spend our money in areas other than North Las Vegas, which does not provide the revenue we need to continue growing our city. Several years ago, we were considered a “bedroom community,” and we almost went into State receivership when we hit a budget deficient of $150 million dollars. Now, we have turned that around, and we plan to break ground for this development very soon. The new area will include a medical research facility, doctors, a hospital, a hotel and much more that will be built over the next several years. The hospital will complement the VA facility, and also serve nonveteran's needs. Simply stated, we need our residents to support our local businesses as they begin to sprout up around our city. Also, close to the job creation zone, is our soon-to-open Veterans Resource Center. It will be located along Centennial Parkway next to our Generational Facility run by the YMCA. The Resource Center will provide a location for Veterans to meet and interact, a physical location for those in need of services to make appointments, and close to the VA facility for veterans who have multiple visits on the same day. Having the Resource Center in this location will also provide a space for job interviews, possible needed training, and social gatherings and meetings for various veteran organizations. We are in the process of hiring a person to run the Center, coordinate events and serve the needs of these brave men and women. We hope to have the Center completed by years end and will notify everyone to invite them to attend the ribbon cutting event. Please remember to attend our 8th Annual Armed Forces, Military Veterans & First Responders Appreciation Day family event on October 22 at Craig Ranch Regional Park. Also, if any of you would like to subscribe to my monthly email newsletter, please send me an email at: cherchior@cityofnorthlasvegas.com. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, just drop me an email and I will be happy to help if I can. Yours in service, Richard Cherchio Ward 4 Councilman/ Mayor Pro Tem

NEIGHBORHOOD NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH MONTHLY BULLETIN: NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

Our Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, Jim Blossey, has had several recent occasions when he was contacted by a concerned relative trying to reach a family member in the community. This month Jim would like to share some thoughts; so, you will be prepared should you or your family ever be in this situation. “Over the years, Neighborhood Watch has been called upon to do wellness checks. A wellness check occurs when someone, usually a family member, cannot reach a relative, often their mother or father. The relative will contact Neighborhood Watch and ask us to go to the house and see if a resident is at home and okay. Most often, I have found that they may have taken a trip or are just gone for the day.

“Unfortunately, some checks do not always have positive results. First, I go to a neighbor's home to find out if they have heard from the person, have seen the person, and when they last saw the individual. Next, I call the Front Desk of the Community Center to see if there is a contact person and phone number available. While a Front Desk employee tries to reach a family member, I go back to the home and attempt to make contact by tapping on the windows and knocking on the door. “If someone is in the house, maybe they have fallen and are injured or they are ill. If I make voice contact with them, and the resident cannot open the door and needs help, then I call 911. While waiting for emergency services to arrive, I must find a way to get into the home.

“Sometimes, a resident will give us the garage door keypad number. But most times I need a key to get in the home. Some residents have a lockbox with a key to the front door in the lockbox. Then I must find the person who has the code to the lockbox. You can purchase a lockbox, like a realtor would use, and hang it on the pipes on the side of your garage and put a spare house key inside. They are available online and can be delivered or purchased at the Big Box hardware stores. “For your own safety, while home or away, I suggest that our Community Center staff have access to your cell phone number and an emergency contact person and number. It's a good idea to make sure that several people have the code to your lockbox or your garage code, if that applies. “We suggest your emergency contact person be your Neighborhood Watch Block Captain or Coordinator, and possibly, a trusted neighbor. From my experience, time is of the essence when someone is worried that they can't reach you. Help us help you.”-Jim Blossey For information regarding the Sun City Aliante Neighborhood Watch program, contact our coordinator, Jim Blossey, at jimandpatb@embarqmail.com or 775-530-5119. Be safe.

COMMITTEE NEWS

AUGUST 2022

PATROL COMMITTEE See Something… Say Something! See something, say something is a national campaign to raise awareness about possible terrorism, but the same slogan is used at the local level to alert local authorities to suspicious incidents and circumstances. As a Sun City Aliante resident, you can put your observation skills to work by being aware of your surroundings and attach a level of suspicion when you see something that Just Doesn't Look Right (JDLR). Not all vehicles are suspicious; thus, a criminal can easily blend in with other vehicles in our community. As a resident, it is your observation skills that are the difference between a harmless legitimate vehicle and a suspicious vehicle. OPEN POSITIONS ON SUN CITY ALIANTE COMMITTEES The Finance Committee has two open positions for a homeowners on its committee. The Patrol Committee has two open positions for a homeowner on its committee.

We encourage you to consider becoming more actively involved in your community by joining one of the Sun City Aliante Committees.

This new quarterly assessment amount is effective on July 1, 2022. As there are no other changes (i.e., account number or payment location), the only adjustment you need to make is the amount. $210.00 is due on the 1st of July, October, January and April. If you normally receive a coupon book, you should have received your new book around June 20. If you have set up a monthly automatic debit to your bank account, please make sure that you change it to the new amount.

RESIDENT SPOTLIGHT

JUMPING JACK WITT AND THE SKY PEOPLE PERFORM EXHILERATING STUNTS AND DARING MANEUVERS By Trish Williamson

Skydiving demonstrations, breathtaking free falls, parachuting maneuvers, wing walker stunts… these were Jack Witt's real passions and lifetime career. Welcome to the world of skydiving! Jack started skydiving with the Golden Nugget Skydivers at a small sports club located in North Pole, Alaska, near Fairbanks, when he was in the Air Force. (Yes, North Pole is a real place where many people send their Christmas cards to get them postmarked.) "Once I made the first jump, I was hooked at age 19," said Jack. "It is very safe if you follow the rules, regulations and procedures. It is a fantastic sport that many people believe is dangerous, but you just have to be trained.” After serving four years in the military, Jack returned to his hometown of Mequon, Wisconsin and resumed his favorite sport. By the early 1970s, with at least 1,000 jumps under his belt, Jack decided to form a skydiving team, called SKY PEOPLE Parachute Jump Team. "The largest number of teams I had was five, but I could get as many people as I needed for a jump. We had lots of substitutes in case someone could not make it." noted Jack. "There is No Event Too Large or Small!" Jack advertised in a brochure. "We performed our stunts and daring maneuvers for air shows, company picnics, carnivals, store openings, sportsmen's outings, weddings, private parties and many other occasions," said Jack. "We always jumped right after the Thunderbirds when we did air shows and sat at the same table with them at banquets. I once had a party at my home and the whole team jumped into my back yard. We have done it all.”

Jack Witt (kneeling) is pictured with one of his teams.

After 47 years of jumping and 11,423 jumps, Jack sold his company in the late 1990s. Jack is a resident of Sun City Aliante. He fondly reflected, "Skydivers come from all walks of life, men and women alike, and they all say, 'It is fantastic! You ought to try it. Age does not matter."

As the owner of a company homebased at Arrow Park Training and Practice Field in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, Jack led and trained all the jumpers on his teams, who were required to have at least 1,000 jumps. "Sometimes, we had three gigs over the weekend in various parts of the country or around the world. I have led teams that jumped in all 50 states, 14 countries and 4 continents. I owned all the equipment, uniforms and a complement of five airplanes." Jack is a long-standing member of the United States Parachute Association, holding membership card No. 612. He also earned a WORLD RECORD for the World's First 9-man Diamond Formation in 1982, executed by nine jumpers jumping in one at a time and putting their feet in each other's canopy as they fell downward and split up before they landed. To promote his company, Jack allowed qualified photographers to jump with them for free. When a photographer submitted a photo of Jack's team, his submission landed a cover photo and story in the July 1989 issue of PARACHUTE MAGAZINE. You may be surprised to learn that in addition to skydiving, Jack worked for Sears & Roebuck for 28 years. "I had a great deal with Sears. I worked as a service representative, and they would pay me even when I was gone. In return, I would bring in my team to promote the opening of new stores or any other events they wanted," Jack explained.

CHARTERED CLUBS ALOHA SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP

Join the members of the new Aloha Special Interest Group on Sunday, August 21 at 4 p.m. to celebrate the Hawaiian Islands becoming the 50th U. S. state in 1959.

A U.S. territory since 1898, Hawaii became the 50th state in August 1959, following a referendum in Hawaii in which more than 93% of the voters approved the proposition that the territory should be admitted as a state. There were many Hawaiian petitions for statehood during the first half of the 20th century. The Aloha Group will meet to enjoy a potluck, Kanikapila music, and maybe, some Hula and, of course, Talk Story. All residents are invited to join in on the fun of this celebration. We have 9th Island Hawaiians in this group, past residents of the Hawaiian Islands. If you plan to attend, please call Pineapple Kapono at 951-214-9849 to let him know what dish you plan to bring. Aloha Ka Kou Pineapple Kapono

Rosh Hashanah, means the "head of the year," and is the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, literally "day of shouting/blasting". It is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days, which usually occur in the early autumn. Rosh Hashanah observances include candle lighting in the evenings, and festive meals welcoming the sweetness of the year ahead, which often includes challah bread and apples dipped in honey. Prayer services include the sounding of the ram's horn (shofar). Following Rosh Hashanah, the “Ten Days of Repentance” is observed, marking the opportunity to reflect on any sins and transgressions over the past 12 months. Kol Nidre is a declaration chanted in the synagogue before the beginning of the evening service on Yom Kippur, when fasting begins. The New Year represents a fresh start. Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year in Judaism. It marks the culmination of the 10 Days of Awe. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with fasting and intensive prayer, often spending much of the day in synagogue services. Break-the-Fast is the meal eaten at the end of the fast day. It is enjoyed after the sounding of the shofar.

UKULELE STRUMMERS Happy August from Sun City Aliante Ukulele Strummers! The weather is finally HOT. It is time to stay inside and play ukulele with the Ukulele Strummers! All three classes are having a great time learning and playing ukes together every Sunday. If you just want to stop on by and sing with us, that is great too. We continue to offer three classes every Sunday: Basic Ukulele: Noon-12:30 p.m. - For those who have never played ukulele. Beginning Ukulele: 12:30- 1:25 p.m.- For those who are starting to play. Advanced Ukulele: 1:30-2:30 p.m. – For intermediate players, who have attended ukulele classes, and know ten or more basic chords. You will learn one or two new songs a week, play songs you may know, and learn special strumming techniques.

We use Pete McCarty's free book of 400 songs for most of our music. It is located at this link: https://peteymack2.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/5/4/135404457/august_2021 .pdf If you are interested in joining us, please stop by a class or give me a call. Happy Strumming! Kevin Smith, 916-847-7422

VETERANS CLUB Greetings Friends, Neighbors and Fellow Veterans: Special thanks to the Church youth group, along with veteran volunteers for helping with the Flags and repairs. If you participate in our ADOPT-AFLAG Program, you will have your name inscribed on the Honor Roll Plaque on the Veteran's Wall located in the hallway near the Library/Computer Room in the Community Center. For more information, please contact Fred Schnelle at 661-510-9158 Email: ugschnelle@yahoo.com The Veteran's Monument, located in front of the Community Center, now has a new grid to help find bricks with numbers on the side and letters on the bottom. If you have not seen it yet, you really should take a moment out of your day and visit the Monument. If you wish to purchase an engraved memorial BRICK, please contact Sy Nielson at 702 234-9183 or email synlo@yahoo.com The important military observances for August 2022 include: AUGUST 4, 2022 – COAST GUARD BIRTHDAY AUGUST 7, 2022 – PURPLE HEART DAY AUGUST 29, 2022 – MARINE CORPS FORCES RESERVE BIRTHDAY Tom Dorsey, of Disabled American Veteran's (DAV), is in desperate need of volunteer drivers, who can drive DAV vehicles to pick up vets and bring them to their appointments. Please call 702-803-0766 for more information. I would like to thank the Seniors Assisting Seniors volunteers Don Schaefer and Frank Walid for handling over 50 calls to assist residents during the month. WHY VOLUNTEERING IS IMPORTANT- PART 3 Learn New Things Volunteerism also gives you the chance to learn new things. Most likely, you will work in a new capacity that is unfamiliar to you. This will allow you to gain new skills and grow as a person, For example, you may help plan a large event, provide comfort to an elderly individual, deliver meals, or read to children. Between the people you are serving, the volunteers you work with, and the individuals working at the nonprofit you are helping, there are a lot of opportunities for growth. This is especially helpful in building your relationship and communication skills. . So, If you are a resident (everyone) of Sun City Aliante, Veteran or not, we need you to become a member. IT IS FUN AND IT IS FREE. Our next Meeting is September 20, 2022 at 6 p.m. in the Vista Room. You can also join us on FACEBOOK at Veterans Club Aliante. You are truly a remarkable group of people! Sincerely, LeRoy Munson Chairman, Veterans Club of Sun City Aliante
