Community Center Guidelines

SUN CITY ALIANTE COMMUNITY CENTER FULLY REOPENED

We are very excited that over the past few months, we have been able to resume all our normal activities in compliance with state and local mandated guidelines. At this writing, although we have resumed our normal activities, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak has imposed a mandate that requires everyone, whether they are fully vaccinated or not to wear a mask in public indoor places in Clark County and other Nevada counties with a high COVID-19 transmission rate. Based on the Governor's mandate, the following health guidelines with be enforced inside the Community: All residents are required to wear masks inside the Community Center at all times. The only exceptions to the mask rule include the following: * Removing your mask to eat/drink * Using gym equipment * Swimming or participating in an aqua aerobics class * Participating in a Fitness Class * Doing physical exercise such as playing table tennis or dancing * Showering before and after using the pool 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. 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 no longer required to make reservations in advance to use the Fitness Center, Pool Area or to participate in a Fitness or Pool Class. 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 are scheduling 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

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

702-638-5065 Monday - Saturday 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. Sunday 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Hello Neighbors, First Service Residential

As I reported several months ago, to further enhance our Community Center, I formed an ad-hoc committee to investigate additional changes that will bring the remainder of our facilities up to date.

702-399-4273 - www.fsresidential.com

Community Association Manager Damian Carrasco -702-638-5007 gm@suncityaliante.us

These changes will take place in older sections of our Community Center that haven't been updated in several years. What is being looked at initially is new flooring, updating the color scheme, new and advanced lighting, and new cabinetry.

Board of Directors Warren Geller, President Ed Sloman, Vice President Wayne Headrick, Secretary Nancy Prince, Treasurer Mark Smith, Director Mark Pallans, Director Mark Towers, Director

The committee has tasked Damian with getting some rough costs; so, we have an idea of how to proceed. Although it has taken a few months to get this off the ground due to the magnitude of items on Damian's plate, the project is now progressing forward. I will have more to convey as we get a better idea of the magnitude of this project, which should be soon. It is anticipated that work will not begin much before the end of this year and certainly will continue into 2022. All efforts will be made to cause minimal disruption to planned activities. It will be three months before we will ask people to come forward and apply to be a member of the 2022 Board of Directors. Although it may seem very early to be advertising for possible candidates, it is essential that we continue to have outstanding people on your Board, and it is not too early to ask you to give this some thoughtful consideration. Please remain safe. Warren M. Geller President, Sun City Aliante Board of Directors

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Greetings Fellow Residents and Homeowners, As I am the Board of Directors Liaison to the Architectural Review Committee (ARC), I wanted to take this opportunity to inform you about the ARC and the great work they do to keep the Sun City Aliante Community looking so attractive. Before you can make any modifications to the outside of your property that can be seen from the street, the ARC must approve all of the changes. That's why you don't see any pink flamingos in the front yards of our community. Mark Pallans

When you purchased your home, one of the documents you received was the Sun City Aliante Design Guidelines. This is the “bible” for what you can and cannot do on the outside of your property. Some of the guidelines are related to esthetics and some are protective. For example, there is a list of specific plants and trees which are permitted and a list of prohibited plants and trees. These lists are provided because certain “growing things” can be toxic in our desert environment, and some need way too much water to survive. Every guideline is based upon practical use. Our ARC committee is made up of homeowners who have years of experience in helping Sun City Aliante residents meet the requirements of the Guidelines. The Committee Chairman, Harlan Nelson, has a lifetime of engineering experience to lead the Committee. The Committee is very aware of the terrain we live on. When you want to plant trees or shrubbery, pave an area of your back yard or put in paving stones on your property, Committee members look at the designed drainage paths around your property. The desert we live in consists of what is called “expansive soil.” This means that when it gets wet, the ground under your feet (and foundation) grows and that growth can actually damage or destroy the structure above it. Just recently, in a new development here in Clark County, it was found that houses were sinking and walls were cracking on a large number of the new homes. While it is currently speculation, it appears that moisture in the soil may not be draining away properly. That is why the ARC Guidelines set the distances from plants to your houses and wall. When you paint your homes, the ARC Committee tries to continue the original design color concepts to avoid having “cookie-cutter” homes with the same paint schemes and frontages. If you look across Aliante Parkway to the homes along Farm Road – they all look alike – and they are pretty much all the same color. I think many of the developments only have three models. What happens if you make a modification without filing an application? There are several possible courses of action. If a community inspector finds it, you may get a violation or rules notice which can result in a fine, and possibly, you can be ordered to remove the violation.

The Sun City Aliante Board of Directors pictured (l-r) are Mark Pallans, Director; Nancy Prince, Treasurer; Ed Sloman, Vice President; Warren Geller, President; Wayne Headrick, Secretary; Mark Towers, Director and Mark Smith, Director. The Breeze is a monthly publication of Sun City Aliante Community Association, Inc. (SCAL), designed to provide information and news to the members of Sun City Aliante.

In no event shall SCAL be liable for any damages whatsoever whether in an action, arising out of or in connection with the use, inability to use, or performance of the information, services, products and materials available from this publication.

Most likely, you will have to file an application and the ARC committee will try to work with you to correct any deficiencies. We have had some changes removed, because they were simply NOT ALLOWED by the Design Guidelines. The ARC Committee meets every two weeks on Thursday and Friday. Thursday meetings are reserved for the members to speak with homeowners who want information on making specific modifications and for the Committee to review applications submitted over the prior two weeks. If they find problems with meeting the ARC Guidelines, they contact the homeowner and try to fix the issue; so it can be officially reviewed and voted on at the formal Committee meeting. By the way - way back in “ancient history”… there was a pink flamingo in Sun City Aliante for a short time! Respectfully, Mark Pallans, Director, Sun City Aliante Board of Directors

year, have reached out to me. They expressed a desire to coordinate dates to offer a third COVID-19 booster shot in the Community Center.

AMAZING TURNOUT FOR A GRAND CELEBRATION

We anticipate the dates will be in late October and in November. As soon as we have more information, we will notify you through our eBlasts, postings on the website and The Breeze. In the meanwhile, for more information about scheduling COVID-19 vaccination appointments and specific sites, you can visit the Southern Nevada Health District website at https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/vaccine/distribution /. Additional information is available on the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/index.html. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

We had an amazing turnout for our grand event – celebrating the Expansion & Enclosure Project Completion and the Grand Re-Opening of the Community Center – on September 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Damian Carrasco

Speaking in the Grand View Room, the Board of Directors President Warren Geller officially welcomed many residents and distinguished guests to the celebration, including FirstService leaders and North Las Vegas City and Fire Department officials.

During his address, Warren thanked the Board of Directors, City officials, the Ad Hoc Committee, Management and staff for all their contributions to the project. He reflected that the fresh, modern, forward-looking atmosphere of the new Community Center would let everyone know that Sun City Aliante is a vibrant, active community. He also emphasized to residents that this was their day to celebrate the improvements made in their Community Center. As residents entered the main doors of the Community Center, they were encouraged to sign a poster commemorating the event and those who attended. Then they were invited to walk through the Community Center to experience the event.

HEALTH & FITNESS COVID-19 VACCINES UPDATE As of this writing, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the FDA Advisory Panel voted on September 17 to recommend COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for Americans age 65 and older and those at risk of severe illness. Additionally, according to the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD), Clark Country residents with moderately to severely compromised immune systems can get a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccines at the SNHD locations and at partner clinic locations throughout the community. The additional dose was authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended on September 2, 2021 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for people who are immunocompromised and have been fully vaccinated with two-dose Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.

Those who are currently eligible include people who have:

In the Activity Room, residents could sit down and enjoy eating delicious chocolate and vanilla cakes.

Third doses can be administered at least 28 days after second doses have been received. People should talk to their health care provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

I want to thank the whole team for making this a successful and amazing event. A special thank you to Debbie Kent for arranging and coordinating this remarkable celebration and for planning the delicious menu provided by Soirees Caterers. Thank you to all the Front Desk Associates for helping to execute the event. I also want to recognize Juan Macias and the Maintenance team for the set up and break down required.

ASSOCIATION NEWS

LIFESTYLE NEWS Dear Residents, Community News New Residents were given a “Warm Welcome” to Sun City Aliante with informational highlights that make this Active Adult Community sensational! The wide variety of amenities offered, remarkable fitness programs, exciting opportunities for involvement in our clubs and special interest groups, and impressive entertainment calendar offer unlimited choices for a healthy lifestyle. The New Resident Welcome 2-day event was a huge success, thanks to the presenters, Chartered Club and Special Interest Groups, and all New Residents who attended! Sincere appreciation to the staff who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to organize this special event!

COMMUNITY STANDARDS Dear Residents, It was so good to see new faces at the twoday New Resident Orientation held on August 20 and 21. I hope that all who attended had a great time and are more excited to be here in Sun City Aliante after meeting staff, Board members, and touring the Community Center. I couldn't help but notice many homeowners admitted they have never been in a homeowners' association (HOA) community before. I hope the “newbies” will find our HOA gratifying, fun, and welcoming.

Lifestyle Committee The Lifestyle Committee has been busy working on resources for the residents to enjoy: Three Brother Sewing Machines Two sets of Corn Hole Equipment Six Card Shufflers These items are available to all Sun City Aliante residents to enjoy and may be checked out at the Front Desk.

Not all associations are created the same, managed, or operated the same. We are an association that is slightly more special than most planned communities; We are an ACTIVE ADULT COMMUNITY. The age group 55+ is one the fastest-growing segments of our society. These communities allow residents to stay near their hometowns (or as far away as possible), and develop new friendships and activities. These communities are springing up all over the country, not just in Florida and Arizona where they were previously predominantly located.

Outstanding Opportunities Offered in October If you purchase tickets to the two Vegas Golden Knights games in November, you will be entered in a drawing for 2 free tickets to an upcoming (mutually agreed upon) game! You will receive one raffle ticket for each game ticket purchased, so the more game tickets you buy, (consider going to both games in November) the more entries you will have into the raffle to be held on Friday, November 4, in the Grand View Room at noon (need not be present to win).

I encourage all new residents to please visit the Community Center and enjoy the amenities, clubs, organizations, events, and excursions. Come and visit Carol Garbarino and register; she is informative, funny, and has an East Coast vibe - I promise you will 99.9% like her.

Visiting these meetings could help you understand the different projects under consideration or just see firsthand how much fellow homeowners truly care about the well-being of the community. Stop by and say hello when you come to the Community Center; so, we can chat a little, and I hope you give me a chance to get to know you better. The Sun City Aliante Administrative Offices will be closed on Friday, October 29, in celebration of Nevada Day.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

COUNCILMAN RICHARD CHERCHIO

Dear Residents,

Hello Neighbors and Friends,

I am delighted to say good-bye to summer and to welcome back fall and the many events we have not held for more than a year, such as the Advertiser's Meet 'n' Greet, which is scheduled on Thursday, October 14, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Vista Room.

I typically write my articles a month in advance and today happens to be the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Although it was the day that terrorists attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an attempt to instill fear on our lives, what sticks out the most to me was the bravery displayed by our American citizens. I'll never forget how the passengers on the fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, sacrificed their lives to save others. Their heroic actions spared another target from being destroyed and saved countless other

Look forward to FREE door prizes, give-a-ways, and a continental breakfast hosted by MountainView Hospital and the ER at Aliante. This is a great opportunity to meet Breeze advertisers on an informal basis. You will have the chance to speak directly with representatives about their products and services. After you have visited all the advertisers and secured their signatures, you will receive a FREE raffle coupon which will make you eligible to win many door prizes provided by the advertisers. You may not be aware that advertising revenues cover all the costs for printing and mailing The Breeze with some excess revenue going to the operations fund. So, please say thanks to all the advertisers for their support and try their products and services. Plan to stop by; you do not want to miss the fun and FREE door prizes. Have you checked out our website, suncityaliante.org, lately? We have installed a brand-new feature at the top of the home page. Just click on “Magazine” and then “The Breeze.” It will open up to the current Breeze cover. Just select the arrow to the right, and it will open like you are reading a book. The resolution is much higher than we were able to offer before. Please visit page 13 for more details. I want to thank everyone who has sent photographs and write-ups for the “Resident Spotlight.” Residents enjoy hearing about your interesting projects, travel adventures, birthdays, anniversaries and other experiences during the past several months. You have made me and many other residents smile. Please keep those photos and writeups coming for future issues. Start the month of October off with a smile. The first Friday in October, “World Smile Day,” offers us an opportunity to do an act of kindness. Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. In the past you have probably received one in an email and now you know the history. From there, the bright cheerful smiley grew in popularity. There is some controversy over the creator. French entrepreneur Franklin Loufranci claimed to have invented it in 1968. Eventually, the bright yellow smiley face became so popular that the US. Post Office issued a stamp with the smiley face. I welcome your suggestions for new articles, especially those about residents, and anything else related to the content you would like to see in The Breeze. My office is located behind the Front Desk. Please take a minute to stop by and say hello. If you have any questions or want to share information, please contact me at 702-638-5035 or email twilliamson@suncityaliante.us. Have a fabulous day! Trish Williamson Editor, The Breeze

lives. I'm sure to many of you who watched this year's news coverage on TV and heard the families speaking at Ground Zero; it seems like Sept. 11 just happened. It feels like that to me - I remember it just like it was yesterday. Twenty years have gone by since that fateful day, yet it seems like that wound is still fresh. Recently, I had the honor to attend the memorial service at Fire Station 5 in Las Vegas with my wife, Gloria. The ringing of the bell at Station 5 was transmitted to every fire station here in the valley. Former firefighter and current Aliante resident Frank Pizarro, who worked at a New York fire station close to Ground Zero, sang the “Star Spangled Banner.” It was a beautiful way to honor the 343 firefighters who lost their lives trying to save those who were inside the Twin Towers, as well as the many more who have passed since that day due to the inhalation of the toxic smoke. Aside from honoring these brave men and women, the reason why I also bring 9/11 up a month later is because on Oct. 16 at Craig Ranch Regional Park, 628 W Craig Road, we will once again pay tribute to all those who serve our country. My nonprofit Armed Forces, Military Veterans, and First Responders Appreciation, Inc. will honor those who have served and continue to serve our country, including our veterans, first responders, police officers and firefighters, along with the paramedics and EMTs on our local ambulances and nurses who have worked tirelessly over the past year and a half to help us get through what I hope is the worst of the pandemic. I want to give special recognition to the men and woman of the North Las Vegas Fire Department who dedicated their time to vaccinate many of our Sun City residents over several weeks. They are true heroes and deserve our appreciation as many of you have already shared with them. Once again, the event is Saturday, Oct. 16 with opening ceremonies beginning at 11 a.m. The event runs through 4 p.m. Complimentary food will be provided by John Mull Meats for all our military, first responders and their families. We will also have food trucks to purchase food for our general public guests. There will also an amazing lineup of live entertainment throughout the day. Additionally, we'll have more than 50 vendor booths and the L.V. Cruisin' Classic Car Show for your enjoyment. Every year, this event is made possible by the volunteerism of many of our Sun City residents and Veteran Club members who are still serving our community as they did while on active duty. They have been instrumental in our success since we first hosted this event back in 2014. I will close by mentioning that a VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT will be made that day for the first time, and with the weather a bit cooler by then, I hope to see many of you attend and enjoy the day. Everyone stay safe! Richard Cherchio, Ward 4 Councilman

COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

At the time of this writing in August, we are preparing the October Breeze. Therefore, the events discussed may seem like old news, but they are still happening on an ongoing basis. In the months of July and August, thieves broke into six mailboxes. One was damaged so badly that it had to be replaced. It is suspected that the thieves are looking for outgoing mail. To help protect your mail, we suggest you place outgoing mail in your box in the morning before the mailman usually arrives. Do not put mail in your mailbox the night before. Also, we suggest you pick up your mail daily. If there is no mail in our boxes, maybe, the thieves will leave our mailboxes alone. You could also take outgoing mail directly to the post office. Typically, the months of October, November, and December have a lot more outgoing mail than the rest of the year. These months are also known for online shopping and home deliveries. The “Porch Pirates” no doubt will again be out in force; so, when you're scheduling or expecting a delivery, make sure to be home to accept it or ask a neighbor to look out for it.

Something else that has been going on across the country, as well as in our community, is the theft of catalytic converters from cars parked in the driveway or on the street.

On Thursday, September 2, the Technology Club gave a follow-up to the August “Cutting the Cable Cord” discussion to more than 25 attendees. To summarize August presentation: club leaders believe that streaming (accessing entertainment and content over the internet) will eventually replace cable.

A prerequisite for streaming is to have sufficient wi-fi bandwidth and the use of a Roku or Firestick. Members demonstrated how to install a Roku box. Using the Vista Room's wi-fi the Roku box was installed on a TV and a free internet streaming channel (Pluto) was accessed. A suggested approach was to acquire and install a Roku or Firestick to test the wi-fi bandwidth and to determine if the streamed channel was acceptable. If the performance is acceptable, then you could proceed to “cut the cable cord”. Upcoming Presentations: October – Windows 11 November – Cyber Security Please join us for these presentations.

CHARTERED CLUBS VETERANS CLUB

UKULELE STRUMMERS Aloha from Sun City Aliante U k u l e l e Strummers! The Sun City Aliante Ukulele Strummers were thrilled to play for the New Residents Welcome events! Our beginning ukulele students got their first taste of performing, and our club grew as new students from the audience joined the club the next day. A great time was had by all! The Ukulele Strummers are still meeting weekly on Sunday afternoons in the Activities room next to the gym. Three classes are offered and all classes have room for more strummers: Intro to Ukulele 1: 12:45-1:30 pm. This class is for people who have never touched a ukulele. You will learn 4 basic chords and one or two songs. Beginning Ukulele 2: 1:30 – 2:30 pm. This is the class for people who have learned a song or two on the ukulele and want to broaden their experience in playing songs and learning chords. Intermediate Ukulele 3: 2:30-3:30 pm. This class is for intermediate players who have attended ukulele classes here or from another instructor and know ten basic chords. We will learn one or two new songs a week, play through songs we know, and learn some special strumming techniques. We use Pete McCarty's free book of 350 songs located at this link:https://peteymack2.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/5/4/135404457/dec_20 20.pdf. If you are interested, please give me a call or drop by the class. Aloha! Kevin Smith 916-847-7422

VETERANS AUXILIARY Happy fall from the Veterans Auxiliary! We hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. The Veterans Auxiliary wishes everyone a safe and Happy Halloween. The Veterans Auxiliary is collecting coupons for U.S. Military and their families proudly serving overseas. If you are interested in saving coupons, please cut and separate them (food, non-food, and pet). The coupons are good even if they are expired up to six months. Please bring them to the Vista Room October 19 at 9 a.m. and thereafter the 3rd Tuesday of every month . We are preparing for the upcoming Community Garage Sale on October 9 and 10, which will be a fundraiser for the Veterans Auxiliary. Please start looking for donations for the October Garage Sale. We are preparing for the Spaghetti Dinner on November 6 with the Veterans Club. Please think about donating gift cards for our fundraiser in November. The Veterans Auxiliary meets every 3rd Tuesday of most months at 9 a.m. in the Sun City Aliante Vista Room. Co-Chairs, Veterans Auxiliary Donna Lawhead, donnavegas10@gmail.com Lynda Towers, Lynda1229@msn.com

Happy Halloween! October is here and cooler weather is finally arriving. The Veterans Club met last month, and it was great seeing everyone again, including new members who visited our booth at the New Residents Welcome. It was a great event. I want to thank all the volunteers who reached out to me to work the booths. We handed out Information about the Veterans Club and took applications from new residents to join the club. In addition, we took applications from many new residents for the Veterans Memorial Monument to purchase “Memorial Bricks” dedicated to their loved ones. New canned track lighting is finally scheduled to be installed on the Veterans Remembrance Wall located inside the Community Center. The canned lights are off back order. Please visit the wall if you have not done so. It is beautiful. On another note, Management notified the Veterans Club that they must remove everything that had been placed and dedicated at the Veterans Memorial Monument. All the rocks, which the “Rock Fairy” proudly displayed and dedicated to us, including the expended gun shells, were carefully placed in boxes and moved into storage. If you have recently stopped by and wondered where everything went, this is the reason why. If you have a rock that you placed on a brick, you are welcome to reach out to me, and I will meet with you and return it. The Veterans Memorial Monument is a place where loved ones come to pay tribute to those who have passed, to those who celebrate anniversary dates as a way of expressing love, to those who have fallen, and to those who are currently serving. I want everyone to know that on certain holidays, and other calendar dates yet to be determined, the rocks and shells will be placed out on the Veterans Monument again. We came to an agreement that after one week, the items placed on Veterans Memorial Monument and the “Rock Fairy” Stones placed on brick pavers will be removed again. If a community resident wants to place something of remembrance on their loved one's brick pavers, the items or item can only remain for one week. First Responders and Military Appreciation Day is scheduled this month on Saturday, October 16 at Craig Ranch Park. For more information go to www.NLVEVENTS4MILITARY.ORG for further details. Our next scheduled meeting is Tuesday, October 19 at 6 p.m. in the Vista Room. Everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a Veteran to join us. Please come and check us out. Have a great October! Sincerely, David Hollander Chair, Veterans of Sun City Aliante
