Community Center Guidelines

SUN CITY ALIANTE COMMUNITY CENTER FULLY REOPENED

Clarification of Nevada Governor Sisolak's Indoor Mask Mandate Effective Thursday, November 11 We were recently provided additional guidance on Governor Steve Sisolak's mask mandate policy from an enforcement group that oversees the execution of the Governor's mandate. As a result of this guidance, during a meeting of the Sun City Aliante Board of Directors on Wednesday, November 10, the Board decided the following health guidelines will be strictly enforced inside the Sun City Aliante Community Center: •

All residents are now required to wear masks at all times inside the Community Center - whether they are fully vaccinated or not.

This mandate applies to everyone who is engaged in athletic activities, including fitness classes, using the gym, playing table tennis or dancing.

The only exceptions to the mask rule include the following: • Removing your mask momentarily to take a drink or eating/drinking during a Lunch 'n' Learn or Snack 'n' Learn seminar

• •

Swimming or participating in an aqua aerobics class Showering before and after using the pool

If you have a medical issue, we recommend you seek the advice of your doctor regarding wearing a mask. We will continue to evaluate the situation daily and keep you informed of any changes. These restrictions will remain in place until the State Health Authority Directives advise it is safe and the Board believes it is in the best interest of the community to remove them.

The mask mandate does not apply to any outdoor activities. The State of Nevada continues to encourage all residents and visitors to be vaccinated as soon as they are able. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) all three vaccines are safe and effective, and Nevadans 5 years of age and older are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Based on the Board of Director's decision to fully reopen the Community Center, we have fully reopened all facilities; and we are bringing back all activities to their regular schedule before COVID19. The Community Center's Hours of Operation will extend one hour in the evening on Monday- Saturday. We will now close at 9 p.m. Hours of Operation: Monday – Saturday – 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. Sunday – 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Administrative Offices Monday- Friday – 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Nelenie Aronce – Assistant Manager/Director of Compliance Carol Garbarino – Customer Service Coordinator • •

All of the areas inside the Community Center are fully reopened. Residents are still required to make reservations for Lunch 'n' Learn and Snack 'n' Learn seminars and all on-site and off-site events.

• • • • •

Residents can access all equipment in the Fitness Center and Aerobics Room. Foods are permitted during scheduled activities only. Registered guests are permitted to use the Community Center facilities and must be accompanied by a resident. Guest registration is $5. All Clubs and Special Interest Groups are invited to resume activities. However, the group leaders must contact Lori Daniels to confirm dates, time, and space. Open Play is permitted, but you must contact the Front Desk 24 hours in advance to request your time and space.

We are excited to have brought back the amazing excursions, activities, and events that you love and enjoy. We’ll continue to schedule more awesome trips and events in the near future. We look forward to seeing you participate in as many as possible. Respectfully, Sun City Aliante Board of Directors

Hello Residents, First Service Residential

It's hard to believe but another holiday season is upon us. It doesn't seem possible that a year has gone by, and next month we will usher in 2022. This has been another difficult year for many but having the Community Center open has helped take our minds off the human suffering that has taken place through this last year.

Aliante Master Association Info 702-638-7770

Unfortunately, I had to report to other Board members the loss of Mark Pallans after a very brief hospital stay. Mark has served as a Board member since our initial meeting in the mid2000s, and he served every term except 2014. He was a life member of the Protectors of Tule Springs and was always a staunch supporter of Sun City Aliante as he championed having a sound fiscal policy. His affiliation with many city management teams was a tribute to the length he was committed to going to make Aliante a great city to live in. He will be missed by his many friends and co-volunteers. On a happier note, those who wanted COVID-19 booster shots have been able to obtain them within our community, and there are indications that mask mandates in Las Vegas may be lifted very soon (if they have not already). I won't be able to recognize my many friends who have been hidden behind a facial barrier. Personally, I can't wait to share a hug or a close conversation with friends who have been fantastic by hanging in with the mandates that many feel are a tremendous burden. I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a joyous Christmas, happy Chanukah, happy New Year, and happy Kwanza. Please give some serious thought to running for a Board position which begins in January 2022 with an application form in the upcoming Breeze. I pray that you will be blessed with a year of good health and many wonderful memories for 2022. Respectfully submitted, Warren M. Geller President, Sun City Board of Directors

As 2021 winds down and the holiday season draws ever closer, it is my pleasure to be the first to wish all of our Sun City Aliante family the happiest, merriest, and most joyful Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanza ever. May the coming year bring you and your loved ones much health, joy, safety, and great happiness. The years 2019, 2020 and 2021 have been quite a wild ride! Let us hope that the new Mark Smith year ushers in calmer, more tranquil times, and a fresh start for all of us. May the spirit of the holiday season fill our hearts with warmth, kindness, and fond memories of our loved ones. If there has one thing that the past few years has taught us, it is that life is very, very fragile and that we should be thankful for and enjoy our blessings and good fortune every day. I hope and pray that 2022 is a turning point for our country and the world and it brings the dawn of a wonderful year for all. God Bless and have a Happy and Blessed New Year! Most respectfully,

COMMUNITY MGR REFLECTIONS ON HOW FAR WE HAVE COME Dear Residents, I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. I begin by expressing my sincere appreciation and gratitude to City of North Las Ve g a s F i r e C h i e f J o s e p h Calhoun and Deputy Chief Travis Anderson and their staff for coordinating and executing the successful distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines for our community on Thursday and Friday, November 4-5. Once again, the North Las Vegas Fire Damian Carrasco Department stepped up to assist our residents by administering booster shots for the PfizerBioNTech and Moderna vaccines. The two-day event was a great success thanks to the collaboration of Lifestyle Director Debbie Kent and Maintenance Manager Juan Macias and their teams, along with many residents and friends who volunteered to lend a hand in assisting the vaccination process. Approximately 225 people received vaccinations each day. I also want to recognize our Board of Directors for permitting the Community Center to be used as the site to administer the vaccines. Kudos to Debbie Kent and the Lifestyle Team for making the last six months so exciting for our residents with a wide array of road trips, sporting events, shows, special outdoor events and performances in the Vista Room. She more than made up for time lost during the COVID-19 isolation by hosting such events as the Grand Reopening of the Community Center, the New Resident Welcome, road trips to the Grand Canyon and Laughlin, multiple sporting events including games with the Vegas Golden Knights, the Aviators and the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, food truck outside events, and much more. It is truly impressive to see us come back to the amazing events we had prior to COVID-19. We held our first Advertiser's Meet 'n' Greet in approximately two years on October 14. It was hosted by the Communications Committee and The Breeze, and it was a resounding success. More than 40 companies participated in the event, and more than 150 residents had an opportunity to meet the vendors and win door prizes, which is always a highlight of the event. Special thanks to Breeze Editor Trish Williamson and Lifestyle Office Manager Lori Daniels who planned, organized, and executed the event and the Maintenance and Lifestyle Teams. We also appreciate the many volunteers, including members of the Communications Committee, Neighborhood Watch, Patrol, and the Veteran's Club, who greeted advertisers and helped them carry display materials. In addition, we are grateful to MountainView Hospital for providing a delicious continental breakfast.

The Sun City Aliante team was saddened to learn of the passing Board of Directors member Mark Pallans. He served on the Sun City Aliante Board for many years, and genuinely cared so much about our community. He will be missed. The Board of Directors recently appointed Sonja Bankston-Cullen to the open Board position at the Board of Directors meeting on November 10, and she will serve the remainder of the term ending May 2022. We are excited to welcome her back to the Board and look forward to working with her. I wish you a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season and New Year. Damian Carrasco Community Manager Sun City Aliante

LIFESTYLE NEWS Dear Residents, Oh, what a year it was! Masks may have shielded your smiles, but we see your smile through your eyes. We went from shelter-in-place shutdowns, tissue paper shortages, Covid-19 Vaccinations and Boosters in the Vista Room, to slowly gaining our lives back by taking gradual steps to a normal life. With safety precautions, we took a leap of faith and pursued our events. We traveled to Tuachan in St. George, UT, the Grand Canyon & Sedona, Laughlin & Oatman, and Mt. Charleston. The sporting events invited us back to games with the Las Vegas Aviators, UNLV Football games at Allegiant Stadium, and the Vegas Golden Knights at the TMobile Arena. The Las Vegas strip offered shows and we jumped at the chance to attend the John Fogerty concert at Wynn Las Vegas and Cirque du Soleil's O at the Bellagio. The residents who attended these functions experienced much needed social interaction and created lifetime memories. With all the safety protocol in place with buses and venues, it has provided a level of confidence to enjoy life. Food Trucks returned to our parking lot, along with Skechers and free shredding. Entertainment continues in the Vista Room with Dance Socials and Box Office Movies at no charge to residents. We truly are making up for lost time. The Community Center has been active with the return of some of our Chartered Clubs and Special Interest Groups. The Lifestyle Committee has been busy working on a new policy for the use of lockers in the Craft Rooms. Once approved by the Board of Directors, those Chartered Club members will be notified as to next steps. All Chartered Club and Special Interest Group Leaders are invited to attend the next Inter Club Council (ICC) Meeting on Friday, December 3, at 10 a.m., in the Vista Room. Residents have resumed their fitness programs, classes, and enjoy the amenities offered to those who wish to continue their health and wellness routines. Please check out the new fitness equipment and our new bi-weekly “Sports Conditioning” class. Looking ahead at 2022, there will be fantastic opportunities for Sun City Aliante residents to enjoy the “City of Entertainment”. Future 2022 events include Vegas Golden Knight hockey games and trips to see Andre Bocelli and Andre Rieu. In addition, we will have live performances in the Vista Room and the return of themed events. Thank you to all those residents who have supported the Lifestyle Department’s calendar of events through these times and sharing your friendship with your neighbors. The Grand Canyon & Sedona participants have already had their first reunion to bring everyone back and reflect on what a wonderful experience they shared together. My sincere appreciation to the Board of Directors, the First Service Residential Team: Damian, Nelenie, Carol, Juan, Angel, Jose, Sharon, Alonso, Nathan, Francisco, Trish, Lori, Elaine, Fran, Jan, Kotch and Angie for being such a remarkable group to work with. Thank you, always!

COMMUNITY STANDARDS Dear Residents: Here we are… December 2021. I do not know about you, but I blinked after the ball dropped on December 31, 2020, and the year flashed by, and now I am again preparing for that New Year's Eve party I will attend. Surely, I am not the only one who feels time is moving too fast. For many of you who relocated from other parts of the country, welcome to Nevada winter. It is not cold, and we have no snow to shovel. As I am writing this article, it is sunny and beautiful outside at 72 degrees. You can walk, bike, or chat with friends while enjoying the view of the mountains or the golf course. I encourage you to do all these, except walking around on the golf course. It is dangerous to walk your dog or take a stroll around the golf course for obvious reasons: errant golf balls and golf carts. Likewise, this is not a good idea in the evening just because there are no golfers present. You may think you are harmlessly taking a leisure walk, but residents who abut the golf course may assume you are an intruder or a stalker. Therefore, for your safety as well as others, please refrain from taking your walks on the golf course during the day or evening. Frosty the Snowman, lights, wreaths, reindeers, and all other holiday decorations are permitted to be displayed but must be removed thirty (30) days after the holiday. Please be thoughtful and respectful to all by not allowing music to be played too early, too late, or too loud. If you are expecting guests, please be mindful that vehicles do not obstruct egress and ingress. Invite guests to the Community Center but please emphasize that all rules must be adhered to. As winter begins, remember to change your landscape irrigation clock to water only on your assigned watering day to comply with the community's mandatory winter watering schedule. In effect through Feb. 28, the winter restrictions limit both turf and drip irrigation to one day per week based on each property's address; find your assigned watering group assignment at the City of North Las Vegas' website. Sunday watering is prohibited year-round. Christmas Hours: The Community Center will close at noon on Friday, December 24 and all day on Saturday, December 25. The Community Center will reopen on Sunday, December 26 at 7 a.m. The Sun City Aliante Administrative Offices will close on Friday, December 24 and Monday, December 27. The Administrative Offices will reopen on Tuesday, December 28. New Year's Hours: The Community Center will close at noon on Friday, December 31, and all day on New Year's Day. The Center will reopen on Sunday, January 2 at 7 a.m. The Sun City Aliante Administrative Offices will be closed on Friday, December 31 and Monday, January 3. The Administrative Offices will reopen on Tuesday, January 4. If you have any questions, please contact me at 702-638-5006 or email assistantmanager@suncityaliante.us. I wish everyone a great holiday and safe travels. See you next year!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa! Here is to bringing back the holiday spirit from yesteryear and making this year's holiday season our best! Best wishes, Debbie Kent

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

COUNCILMAN RICHARD CHERCHIO

Dear Residents,

Hello Residents,

I hope you enjoy an amazing happy holiday season with your families and friends. In the ecumenical spirit of the holidays, we are featuring articles on the traditions of Christmas and Kwanzaa.

I typically receive many questions regarding construction happening around the City and what's to come in the future. I often joke, if we all purchased stock in an orange cone company, we'd all be doing quite well financially today! Yes, having all of this construction can make it a challenge out there on the road, but it's something we all must deal with in order to have the wonderful services and businesses here in North Las Vegas that many of you have been asking for.

In celebration of the holidays, we offer fun seminars in December, which you should put on your calendar. Erin Crisp of Encompass Care Rehabilitation Hospital will host a Holiday Craft Party on December 13. This a great opportunity to make a unique gift to decorate your home or give to a loved one or friend. Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick will serve up a delicious holiday lunch on Wednesday, December 15. Celebrate the season with Commissioner Kirkpatrick and wish season's greetings to your friends and neighbors. As always, she will provide a tasty holiday meal for residents. During this month, we have two days which recognize those who serve or have served our country. National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day takes place on December 7. It commemorates the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. It also honors efforts made in the Pacific War (WWII) that followed the attacks. On December 13, we celebrate the birthday of the U.S. National Guard, a branch of the U.S. Army that was established 1636. It is comprised of citizen-soldiers who volunteer to help their country whenever they are called upon. There are two branches in the National Guard, Army and Air, and every state has both. I feel extremely blessed to have worked in this amazing community for the past 11 years. We have a fabulous Lifestyle Team led by Debbie Kent. I want to thank everyone for their support and friendship. I genuinely appreciate the contributions of Lori Daniels and Elaine Goddard to The Breeze and their support for our advertisers. Kudos to Juan Macias and his Maintenance Team for all they do and keep doing every day to make all of our activities, events, seminars, and more run so smoothly. Thank you to the Administrative Team, Nelenie Hernandez and Carol Garbarino, for their help throughout the year. I am grateful to the members of the Communications Committee, who are always ready to assist me with any challenge including the website, The Breeze, Advertiser's Meet 'n' Greets, Health Fairs and the needs of our advertisers. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge how much I appreciate the leadership of our Community Manager, Damian Carrasco, and the support of our Board of Directors. Thank you! If you have any questions or want to share information, please contact me at 702-638-5035 or email twilliamson@suncityaliante.us. Wishing you a Happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with joy and good health, Trish Williamson Editor, The Breeze

You'll be pleased to know that we have a very diverse group of businesses looking to settle in North Las Vegas. This development contributes to a strong financial base for our city and better positions us in the event of an economic downturn. Our City Council learned an important lesson during the Great Recession – relying strictly on gaming is problematic. Since then, it's been our priority as a council to create a diverse economy; so, our residents would not get hit as financially hard as in the past. This strategy also helps to protect our property values and allows us to maintain and grow our resident services. I am aware that there is also a lot of concern about whether we have enough water to support all of the construction going on. I can assure you, we are growing responsibly, and we have been very proactive in conserving this precious natural resource. Furthermore, the state passed AB 356 recently, which once it fully goes into effect, will eliminate all aesthetic non-functional grass starting with street medians, community entrances, linear sidewalk grass, etc. It will not affect park areas where people and children play. In other news, I would like to commend our Sun City Aliante Veterans Club and its members for their successful dedication of their Veterans Memorial on Veterans Day in front of your Community Center. I also want to thank our North Las Vegas Fire Department staff for agreeing to come to the Vista Room and provide booster shots for all our residents who requested them. One final update on the grading that is going on adjacent to Sun City Aliante (on the vacant land just east of the community wall). DR Horton bought a large portion of land in the Villages of Tule Springs, and they are grading at a fast pace. The plans have them going vertical with phase one, which will be next to your east wall, around May of 2022. As promised, they will all be high-end single-story homes. The project will complement and improve all property values around it. I plan to have the builder and their representative attend a meeting with us in the Vista Room to show you what the models in phase one will look like, as well as answer as many questions as possible. In my next article, I plan to discuss our innovative Job Creation Zone and the exciting opportunities it will provide. Stay tuned! + Richard Cherchio Mayor Pro Tempore Ward 4 Councilman North Las Vegas

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS

CHRISTMAS DAY- A RELIGIOUS HOLIDAY Christmas Day is celebrated by billions of Christians around the world on December 25. It is the annual commemoration of the nativity or the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who is recognized by Christians as the Savior of the World. For Christians, believing that God came into the world in the form of man to atone for the sins of humanity is considered to be the primary purpose for celebrating Christmas. The word Christmas originates from the words Christ's Mass. In old English (first recorded in 1038) it was referred to as Cristesmaesse, which means “Christian Mass.” St. Francis of Assisi began the tradition of singing Christmas carols in church in the 13th century. Popular customs for most Christians today include attending church, exchanging gifts, lighting and decorating Christmas trees and sharing meals with family and friends.

Christmas Day – A Cultural Celebration Christmas Day is a public holiday in many countries and is celebrated religiously and culturally by millions of people. In the 19th Century, as Americans began to embrace Christmas, they changed it into a family-centered day of peace and nostalgia. Over the years, Americans built Christmas traditions all their own that included many other customs and traditions surrounding the Christmas season, including decorating trees, sending holiday cards, gift-giving and renewing the legend of Santa Claus.

Christmas Traditions

HAPPY KWANZAA Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African-American culture, which is held from December 26 to January 1, culminating in gift-giving and a feast of faith, called Karamu Ya Imani, held on December 31. The name Kwanzaa comes from the phrase “matunda ya kwanza” which means “first fruits” in the Swahili language (an Eastern African language spoken in countries including Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zimbabwe). Kwanzaa is mostly celebrated in the USA.

Kwanzaa is less than 60 years old Maulana Karenga, a college professor, created Kwanzaa as a way of uniting and empowering the African American community in the aftermath of the Watts Rebellion. Having modeled his holiday on traditional African harvest festivals, he took the name “Kwanzaa” from the Swahili phrase, “Matunda Ya Kwanza,” which means “First Fruits.”

Many people celebrate both Kwanzaa and Christmas Though often thought of as an alternative to Christmas, many people actually celebrate both. “Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, but a cultural one with an inherent spiritual quality,” Karenga writes. “Thus, Africans of all faiths can and do celebrate Kwanzaa, i.e. Muslims, Christians, Black Hebrews, Jews, Buddhists, Baha'i and Hindus, as well as those who follow the ancient traditions of Maat, Yoruba, Ashanti, Dogon, etc.” According to Karenga, everyone can also enjoy Kwanzaa, just as non-Mexicans commemorate Cinco de Mayo and non-Native Americans participate in powwows

Christmas trees – Each year, 30-35 million real Christmas trees are sold in the Kwanzaa centers around seven principles. United States. Trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold. The seven principles of Kwanzaa, as determined by Karenga, are Umoja Decorated trees date back to Germany in the Middle Ages.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

During the coming weeks, we must be very alert in our everyday life, unlike any other time of the year. The last week in November and all through December people will be out shopping in stores and ordering their holiday gifts online. With online shopping comes delivery trucks. We have all seen UPS, FEDEX, AMAZON PRIME, USPS, TRUCK SHARE, and now there will be UBER and LYFT. Some will text you and some will ring your doorbell. Others will drop the package, leave and email you a picture of the spot they dropped your package. It is up to you to watch for this package to be delivered. If it sits at your front door for even a few minutes, a porch pirate may follow that delivery truck and steal your package. If you cannot be home, ask a neighbor or if you have a Neighborhood Watch Block Captain, ask them to watch for your package. Never leave your packages in your car in plain sight. Always put the packages in the trunk or covered storage area. If you have family or friends in for the holidays, tell them not to store packages in their vehicle. Always make sure the car is locked. This time of the year someone may be checking door handles to see if vehicles are locked.

One more thing to look out for is our incoming and outgoing mail. In the last few months, someone has broken into 6 mailboxes. Our suggestion is to pick up your mail every day, as soon as the mail has been delivered. Outgoing mail should be put in the outgoing mail slot before the mail person has delivered the daily mail. It's not a good idea to leave any outgoing mail in the mailbox overnight. The safest thing to do is to take outgoing mail to the post office curbside boxes or inside the post office.

Thanks to the Community Center staff for assisting us with our luncheon setup and to our Sun City Aliante Board of Directors for creating a beautiful pool room.

The Forget-Me-Knots got together to bag and label all the items they have made lately for the Clark County Foster Children Program. This is their main charity and one that means a lot to all of them. The organization assists children, newborn to age 18, who have many needs. Members of the club make baby blankets, booties, hats, scarves, sweaters and many more items. The Forget-Me-Knots meet every Monday from 1-4 p.m. The items they make are not only for charity, but they also have their own projects too. In the beginning, the club was established to give back to our community. We welcome anyone who has or would like to learn how to knit or crochet. We also have needle work and jewelry making. Please join us for an afternoon of friendship and crafting. They hope to see you there. If you have any questions, please contact Collette Stickney at 702-399-2647.

CHARTERED CLUBS SENIORS WITH WARM HEARTS

TECHNOLOGY CLUB

THE HOLIDAYS ARE UPON US ... Seniors with Warm Hearts' Christmas “Giving” Tree for the children and parents of S.A.F.E. House, as well as the homeless and at-risk teens supported by Street Teens, will continue through Wednesday, December 15th.

On Thursday November 4, over 20 attendees participated in a lively discussion of the do's and don'ts of computer security. Gary Baldasarre led the discussion of many things that you should do about protecting yourself on the computer, including: • When in doubt, throw it out - if you aren't sure of the authenticity of the sender or the email, delete it! • Make sure your windows software is up to date. Many of the recent updates deal with security issues. • Never answer “popup windows” or instructions to call an unknown number or click any buttons to strange messages. • Be careful with personal information and what you share on social media or Facebook. Predators are watching. • Don't re-use passwords and change them periodically. • Spread the word and inform your friends and neighbors about computer security.

You can choose a tag from the tree for S.A.F.E. House with a child's wish, or if you prefer, you may donate a children's gift of your choice. Gifts are needed for all ages: boys and girls, newborns to 18 years, and there are tags for the parents too. For those helped by Street Teens, tags are also available with requests for more necessity type items and gift cards. If you have travel size toiletries from a recent vacation and do not plan to use them, please consider donating these types of items as well. On our tree this year, we will also have additional alternative tags for those who may want to give but may not want to shop. For $25.00, you can donate a Holiday Meal for one of Project 150's many at-risk teens that they service. The meal will feed a teen and their family (4 persons). Checks can be made out to Project 150. The other option is to donate $25.00 to Serving Our Kids Foundation to help them in acquiring the necessary items to provide weekend food to over 3,000 elementary school kids each week who otherwise would not have a food source on weekends. Checks can be made out to Serving Our Kids Foundation. If you choose one of these options, please attach the tag to your donation envelope. There are many options to choose from and please consider donating an item or two. Please drop off your donations no later than, Wednesday, December 15th. Place your unwrapped gifts or envelopes in our red collection box and attach the tag you took from the tree. Donations of wrapping paper, ribbon, bows, holiday decorations, and stocking stuffers, are always welcome. (If you take a tag and then change your mind, please return the tag to the tree as soon as possible, so no child will be left without a gift.) We would also like to send out a very big “Thank You” for the generosity you have shown with our Christmas “Giving” Tree and throughout the year and best wishes for joyous, healthy, and happy Holiday season. Our next meeting will be Thursday, December 16 at 10 a.m. in the Activity Room when we will sort the gifts we receive from our “Giving” Tree and distribute them to the respective organizations. For more information about this event or about our group, contact Carol Hoyt at 702-647-1289 or Karen Nutto at 201-787-9391.

Beginning Ukulele: 12:30 p.m.- 1:25 p.m. This class has played ukulele for a few weeks. Advanced Ukulele: 1:30-2:30 p.m. This class is for intermediate players who have attended ukulele classes and know ten basic chords. We will learn one or two new songs a week, play through songs we know, and learn special strumming techniques. We use Pete McCarty's NEW August 2021free book of 400 songs located at this link: https://peteymack2.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/5/4/135404457/august_2021.p df. If you are interested in joining us stop by a class or give me a call. Aloha!

CHARTERED CLUBS

VETERANS CLUB What a wonderful time of year it is. Cold crisp weather, snow on our local mountain tops and the arrival of winter. It's been a good year looking back. The Veterans Club of Sun City Aliante began having its normal scheduled meetings after COVID-19 shut everything down. We began hosting speakers and increased the growth of the club membership as well. The Veterans Memorial Monument in front of the Community Center took shape, and we began taking ongoing orders for Engraved Pavers. We proudly displayed our American Flags once again within the community on special specified holidays. The Rock Fairy visited homes throughout the neighborhood and placed special Tribute Rocks on all the dedicated pavers on the Veterans Memorial Monument. The Veterans Club completed the Veterans Remembrance Wall. We are hoping next year we will begin hosting our annual community events again. We miss everyone so much. I would like to take a special moment to thank everyone who served on various committees throughout the year. A special thank you to all who came out and supported the Flag Repair parties and those who came out each time very early in the morning and volunteered for Flags Up and Flags Down along with our great Scouts. To the Sun City Aliante Veterans Club Elected Board and Appointed Board, thank you very much for all your hard work and contributions this year. I appreciate all of you very much. You are all very inspiring. The Veterans Club of Sun City Aliante will not be meeting in the month of December. We are donating funds to the “Wreaths Across America.” Hopefully, this year, we will be able to participate and place wreaths at Boulder City Cemetery. To the Sun City Aliante Community Center Staff and Workers, thank you for all your support this year to our club. We are all a Village! I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays, including a very happy and healthy New Years to you and yours. May the year 2022 be a good start for all of us and allow us all more time with loved ones and close friends. Sincerely, David Hollander Chair, Sun City Aliante Veterans Club

Update from Vets 365: Vets 365 participated in the First Responders and Veterans Appreciation Day 2021 in October. We made some amazing connections and talked with many veterans who may need housing in the near future. We also had the Vegas Golden Knights Sled Hockey Team players there to support us and meet with the public. Check them out on Facebook: www.facebook.com/SledKnights/ In December, we will send out our monthly newsletter with updates on our housing project. If you would like to sign up for our newsletter, go to Vets365/VEHNV Newsletter, scroll to the bottom and enter your email address. Wishing everyone a Happy Veterans Day and happy Holiday Season! Sheila Cohen Co-Founder Vets365
