MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Greetings Residents, All successful associations have Board members who have strong integrity, reasonable judgment, a willingness to serve, and are committed to the best interests of the community. Couple this with a Community Manager who has an approachable attitude, excellent communication skills, unwavering integrity, and takes a genuine interest in the community, and you have a formula for success!

I would like to discuss what attributes a successful HOA Board should possess. I sincerely believe that we meet the following criteria.

Board of Directors

Warren Geller, President Mark Smith, Vice President Sonja Bankston-Cullen, Secretary Nancy Prince, Treasurer Ed Ernest, Director Debbie Matthews, Director Mark Towers, Director

LONG TERM FINANCIAL VIEW I believe that Board members must adopt a long-term financial view by looking at the 5-, 10-, 20- and 30-year span and understand the assets of our Association by obtaining a Reserve Study which is updated every 2-3 years. This is necessary as the assets of our Association typically age and require maintenance and/or replacement. We do not skip routine maintenance to save a few dollars. Board members should not be fearful to raise assessments as necessary to maintain strong finances. EDUCATED DECISIONS Education should be a high priority and, as you know, all Board members take this seriously by having obtained our DCAL Certification (new Board members are in the process of being certified). In addition, some other ways to keep current are attending management company training classes, Association attorney seminars, and requiring a periodic review of our governing documents. BE REASONABLE Although Board members have a big responsibility, they do not need to be overzealous or inflexible to fulfill their duties. We must avoid snap decisions, act rather than react, and deal with real problems not nuisance solutions. BE TRANSPARENT Transparency goes a long way toward giving residents the feeling that the Board is doing the right thing. It can be tempting to keep certain decisions concealed, especially, if there is friction among Board members or if the Board believes our decision may be unpopular; however, secrecy leads to distrust once the secret is unveiled. While there are times when confidentially is necessary, most often, HOA business is public information, and it is required to be easily accessible to homeowners.

e Breeze Publisher & Editor

COMMUNICATE Lastly, effective communication is necessary to establish trust and unity in the community, which are necessary to have all residents and Board members on the same page, desiring the same objectives. Board members must voice their opinions even though they may not be popular. Residents should attend our monthly Board meetings, read the weekly eBlasts as well as our monthly magazine “The Breeze.” These are all ways our Association attempts to communicate effectively with all residents.

Managing Editor

Have a safe Labor Day, Patriot's Day, and to my Jewish friends, may your New Year (Rosh Hashanah) be a blessed one.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

We celebrate Labor Day, a federal holiday, on September 5, 2022. What does that mean?

Debbie Matthews

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers, and the holiday is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day weekend also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and it is celebrated with parties, street parades and

In the late 1800s, at the height of the industrial revolution, the average American worked 12-hour days, seven-day weeks in order to eke out a basic living. Despite restrictions in some states, children as young as age 5 or 6 worked in mills, factories and mines across the country, earning a fraction of their adult counterparts' wages. The workers began organizing strikes and rallies to protest poor conditions and compel employers to renegotiate hours and pay. Many of these events turned violent during this period, including the infamous Haymarket riot of 1886, in which several Chicago policemen and workers were killed. On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York, holding the first Labor Day. In the wake of this massive unrest and in an attempt to repair ties with American workers, Congress passed an act making Labor Day a legal holiday in states, the District of Columbia and the territories. On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed it into law. More than a century later, the true founder of Labor Day has yet to be identified. Today, 128 years later, we still celebrate in cities and towns across the United States with parades, picnics, barbecues, and other public gatherings. For many Americans, particularly children and young adults, it represents the end of the summer. As we enjoy the holiday, let us remember why we celebrate, and the courage it took to stand up and make a difference for the American workers. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

GENERAL MANAGER

WE ARE...

WHAT AN AMAZING JOURNEY IT CONTINUES TO BE How fast five years have flown by! I remember it was in September, right after Labor Day, when I joined the Sun City Aliante team as General Manager. I have experienced so many awesome moments at Sun City Aliante during the past five years. I truly have enjoyed coming to work here every day. Looking back at what ultimately brought me to this point, I can honestly say that I could not be happier. I feel privileged to continue to work with such an amazing, hardworking and dedicated Board of Directors. We have come so far and accomplished so much during my time here. I would like to share a few of the highlights with you. As a result of the Expansion and Enclosure Project, we added approximately 3,500 square feet and remodeled approximately 2,200 square feet in the Community Center. We added attractive new furnishings and artwork, new flooring, new interior lighting and new office furniture. The overall feedback from our residents has been very positive. We also added many enhancements to the outside of the Community Center, including attractive new signage on the building and at the entranceway from Aliante Parkway, as well as new landscaping with flowers and plants in the front and back of the Community Center. Also, we updated signage and landscaping at the Broadwing and Widewing entrances. Thank you so much to the Lifestyle Team, our Front Desk Associates and Lori Daniels, Office Manager, for their day in and out dedication to residents, welcoming and greeting each person in a caring, helpful manner as they enter the Community Center. They also assist guests in a multitude of ways including, registering for seminars and events on and off property, checking-in residents for fitness classes and club events, and directing them to other team members. Equally impressive is the diligent work and dedication of Facilities Manager, Juan Macias, and the Maintenance Team for their tireless efforts in keeping the Community Center clean, organized and prepared each and every day for the multitude of events and activities we offer throughout a normal week.

single year through a unique advertising program and raised the number of advertisers. She also offers informative seminars, health expos and Advertising Meet 'n' Greets for our residents. Led by Lifestyle Director Debbie Kent, programs, activities and events on and off property were elevated to an amazing level, everything from shows on The Strip, to trips to California to see the Pageant of the Masters to trips to the Grand Canyon. At the same time, she provided equally exciting shows and events on property. Everyone loves her amazing Food Truck Fun events. The dedication and resiliency of our entire team through all the unprecedented challenges of COVID have been exceptional, including the closing and reopening of the Community Center, dealing with the construction issues, adjusting to all the restrictions and limitations on our offerings, and finally to going full circle back to the “new normal.” Before I joined the HOA community with FirstService Residential, I spent 14 years in the hospitality industry. I worked for hotel properties on the Las Vegas Strip, including Bellagio Resort & Casino, Luxor Hotel & Casino and Aria Resort & Casino. Working in the hotel industry, especially in such high-end properties, created my passion and interest in providing the highest level of customer service to our guests. I am proud to say the desire to achieve Customer Service Excellence ingrained in me is also reflected by all the members of the Sun City Aliante team in everything they do. The foundation of Customer Service is something our team places at the highest priority to provide each and every day. I am very grateful for the opportunity to continue to work for this amazing community, and I look forward to what is in store in the years to come. One of the greatest opportunities I had was to come to Sun City Aliante. I believe things happen for a reason. I am so fortunate to have found the right fit at the right time in this community from a growth opportunity and because of the Board of Directors and the awesome team that was already in place. Because of their caring, hard work, and dedication, we have won the Community Association Institute's (CAIs) Outstanding Large Association of the Year Award three out of the last four years. Enjoy the month of September which brings cooler temperatures! Damian Carrasco General Manager, Sun City Aliante

I truly appreciate the hard work and dedication of Assistant Manager, Nelenie Hernandez, and Customer Service Coordinator, Carol Garbarino, to ensure that there is always fairness and consistency in enforcing the rules and regulations as well as assisting hundreds of homeowners every year with improvements to their homes through the Architectural Review Process and all of the other countless administrative needs. Thanks to our Breeze Editor, Trish Williamson, we expanded our first-class magazine from 40 to 48 pages, increased revenue every

LIFESTYLE NEWS Dear Residents,

Hello Residents,

Welcome Back With fall approaching, our Community Center is becoming the center of interaction and enjoyable opportunities to maximize each day! Welcome back, you Snow Birds! We missed you and are excited to see you for another fun year filled with amazing experiences!

“There are flowers enough in the summertime, More flowers than I can remember – But none with the purple, gold, and red That dye the flowers of September!” – Mary Howitt (1799-1888)

Handy Man – James Taylor We survived summer temperatures in style! Even with triple digit temperatures, we forged ahead with a concert at T-Mobile Arena to see James Taylor perform a three hour concert. It was his last stop on a world tour and the evening took us back in time. The audience was an ocean of silver hair and the ushers said these were by far the best behaved fans they have had in the arena. Mr. Taylor swooned the audience with hits such as I'm Your Handy Man and many more on a spectacular stage set. Heavenly Night The clouds parted for the Sun City Aliante residents so they could enjoy the musical Sister Act at the Spring Mountain Ranch outdoor amphitheater. Star gazing (both on stage and in the sky), hearing the burros sing, breathing in the clean and clear air while surrounded by majestic scenery made it a beautiful night. Rocking the House Sun City Aliante residents “rocked” the Westgate Las Vegas moving and grooving to the sounds of Soul of Motown! This extraordinary performance featured tributes to The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Whitney Houston, and many more! After the show, the artists held a special “Meet & Greet” for Sun City Aliante Residents for photos and autographs. Sun City Aliante Makes History Sun City Aliante took its first trip to the Pageant of the Masters, Festival of Arts, Sawdust Festival, Sunset Cruise, Tour of Laguna Beach and Mission San Juan Capistrano, etc.… it truly was a trip of a lifetime with 45 of our wonderful residents! You will see the pictures from this trip in the October edition of the Breeze Magazine. Excitement Begins Here With September, we are hitting the ground running with Music Bingo, Cirque du Soleil's Mad Apple at New York – New York, Derek Hough of Dancing with the Stars fame performing at the Venetian (front center orchestra seating), Garth Brooks look and sound alike entertainer in the Vista Room, UNLV Runnin' Rebels Football at Allegiant Stadium, and so much more. Inter Club Council (ICC) Meeting On September 2, Guest Speaker, Tyler Corder, COO Findlay Automotive will address the Inter Club Council (ICC) to share volunteer opportunities for Sun City Aliante clubs and special interest groups. Wellness – Mental & Physical Don't forget to check out the endless variety of Lunch n' Learns and Fitness Classes offered at the Community Center. Please see the Front Desk for dates and times and to register. Makers of Memories You will see pictures in this edition of the Breeze Magazine that captured the essence of each event. Strangers became friends, friends renewed friendships, and the community became closer, all while enjoying life in the most exciting city in the world. I am continually amazed at how people look forward to these excursions and are so happy representing Sun City Aliante at the many Las Vegas venues. Sun City Aliante Residents are truly “Forever Young.” Thank you, Debbie Kent Lifestyle Director

Is it really fall season already?! As I mentioned in the past, fall is my favorite season. The earth tone palette you see during the season is inviting, friendly, and warm. Apples, figs, grapes, nectarines, peaches, and pears are in season and the smell of apple pie reminds me of a cozy home. Our Community Center will soon be fastidiously decorated with holiday décor for the remaining months of the year. I always enjoy seeing the results of the creativity and hard work done by the staff and residents in turning our Community Center into something spectacular. This is when guests and visitors are left in awe when they enter our facility. During this month, our office will be gathering data for the Age-Verification. Courtesy Notices will be sent to those residents who failed to meet the deadline. If you received a notice, this means we do not have your verification form and that you must submit the form as soon as possible to avoid further violation notices. Please see Carol Garbarino or the Front Desk for the forms. Please refrain from parking your vehicles; so that, they block driveways, mailboxes, or are too close to stop signs. Garages are for vehicle storage, so please utilize it as such. In addition, please remember to close your garage doors unless you are using them for egress or ingress. All address signs must be legible and well lit. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you the watering schedule changes during September and October.

Watering restrictions also apply to drip irrigation and watering may not exceed the maximum number of days per week allowed by the restrictions. Watering on days other than assigned watering days during restricted hours or other ways of wasting water, such as a leak on your property or unnecessary use, are considered water waste and may result in a fine.

ASSOCIATION NEWS

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Dear Residents,

Autumn is just around the corner. Growing up in northern Virginia, I have fond memories of heading to the Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains to see the brilliant colors of autumn leaves; smell the crisp, fresh air; and best of all, pick apples and enjoy fresh apple cider. Yummy! Here in Las Vegas, we can still enjoy the brilliant autumn colors and fresh apple cider. You just have to know where to go! If you drive up to Mt. Charleston, you can see the autumn leaves turning to brilliant crimson and gold and explore the hiking trails. While you are there, why not stop by the Resort at Mt. Charleston for lunch or dinner? The Lodge at Mt. Charleston, located at crest of Mt. Charleston, was sadly destroyed by fire. However, it is now being renovated and promises to be a beautiful new restaurant serving gourmet fare. (I will keep you updated on when it opens to the general public.) In addition, you can just head over to The Gilcrease Orchard to pick apples in season (and more) and enjoy their delicious cider. The orchard is one of the best kept secrets in Las Vegas. This “hidden treasure” is located at 7800 North Tenaya Way in Las Vegas, practically a neighbor to Sun City Aliante. The Orchard is open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. (Reservations are only required for after-hours Field Trips or Photo Shoots.) Apple cider is their signature item! The naturally sweet, robust flavor comes from the variety of apples they grow themselves. Every year the orchard harvests about 80 tons of apples for their apple cider. They use Gala, Yellow Gala and an early red variety. If you like Gala apples, that is how it tastes. Absolutely NOTHING else is added. In September, you can pick peaches, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash and sunflowers. If you would prefer to buy pre-picked fresh items from the Farm Stand, you can purchase apple cider, garlic, onions, apricot or peach freezer jam, peppers, eggs, peanut butter and selected herbs. The offerings of fresh produce vary with the seasons. The Orchard is famous for its Pumpkin Patch. People come from all over the valley to pick their pumpkins for Halloween. They offer special fall field trips for students from Kindergarten through third grade. Do you want to be informed every month about which delicious produce items are ready for the pickin'? Just go the website www.thegilcreaseorchard.org where you will find all the items listed. I suggest you sign up for their weekly newsletter to receive regular updates on what is coming into season and ready for you to pick. This month we are offering fun and informative Lunch 'n' Learn and Snack 'n' Learn presentations. Clark County Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick invites you to join her for an Autumn Lunch 'n' Learn on September 16, when you will no doubt enjoy delicious fare and get an update on issues that are important to you. On September 21 at 10 a.m. in the Vista Room, the Westside Newcomers Club is hosting an Introductory Coffee. Come have fun, meet new friends and find out about this social group that is open to women in the Las Vegas Valley. If you are looking to sell or rent a time share, do not miss the seminar on September 22 titled “What to Do About that Timeshare!” And there is so much more. Just check out the offerings in The Breeze. If you have any questions, please email me at twilliamson@suncityaliante.us or call 702-429-1623. Enjoy a beautiful fall season!

SEPTEMBER 2022

MAYOR PRO TEMPORE RICHARD CHERCHIO Hello Sun City Residents, Labor Day is upon us, which is a time we celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers. It also marks the unofficial end of summer and, as you know, the start of fall watering restrictions. The mandatory fall watering schedule is in effect as of September 1. That means watering is restricted to three days per week, in accordance with your assigned watering group. As part of its continuing effort to lead conservation valley wide, the City of North Las Vegas has updated the mandatory watering groups for all residential and commercial customers within the water service area. To make the process simpler, the city has assigned watering groups by geographic area. Sun City Aliante is assigned to Group E, which includes all customers north of Deer Springs Way between Decatur and Lamb Blvd. For the fall (September-October), you can water your landscaping on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The new watering groups are effective as of September 1. For more information about your watering group or for landscape irrigation tips, visit www.cityofnorthlasvegas.com/water_schedule or call (702) 633-1216. In more exciting news, I have a couple of great community events lined up for the fall. I am excited to announce our next bingo event at SkyView YMCA! I will be hosting a morning full of fun for our Active Older Adults members beginning at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22. For more information, contact Susan at sfeagans@lasvegasymca.org or visit lasvegasymca.org. SkyView YMCA is located at 3050 E. Centennial Pkwy. here in North Las Vegas! Next month, we are back with the 8th Annual Armed Forces Military Veterans and First Responders Appreciation Day! The event is being held once again at the beautiful Craig Ranch Regional Park, 628 W. Craig Road in North Las Vegas. Join us on October 22 from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. for family fun, entertainment, food trucks, vendors, and games! Free lunches will be provided for all current and past military members, first responders, and their families. All guests must bring their valid first responder identification, military identification, or veteran's card. Armed Forces Military Veterans & First Responders Appreciation Day is FREE and open to the public! Lock in the date and tell your family and friends to come out to support our brave men and women who have served and continue to serve our country and our local communities. Spend the day giving your time and appreciation to Las Vegas' local AFMVA. There will be live entertainment, food trucks, vendors, and so much more. Every year, this event is made possible by the volunteerism of many of our Sun City residents and Veteran Club members who continue to serve 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. Armed Forces Military Veterans, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that focuses on assisting local veterans by providing these military heroes with valuable resources, such as education, transition-related assistance, employment opportunities, and so much more. In addition, AFMVA works closely with First Responders who service the local community's immediate needs. For more information, visit www.nlvevents4military.org or call 702-3211075. To all of our workers out there, thank you for all you do. And for those of you who are retired, I thank you for your service to the community throughout your career!

HADASSAH COMMUNITY HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES The Sun City Aliante Havarah and Hadassah are once again hosting lay Jewish High Holiday Services at the Sun City Aliante Community Center. All are welcome. The dates for 2022 are Rosh Hashanah, Monday, September 26; Kol Nidre, Tuesday, October 4; Yom Kippur, Wednesday, October 5. Plans are being made to celebrate the holidays in the Community Center. More specific information will be forthcoming. 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 include 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.

Lic. #0082208

Break-the-Fast is the meal eaten at the end of the fast day. It is enjoyed after the sounding of the shofar. For additional information contact Mady Shapiro--shapiromr@yahoo.com or Bethann Casar--bcasar@juno.com.

Do you and everyone living in your home know how to turn off the water to your home if you have a leak, a leaky valve or a pipe burst? There would be nothing more frustrating than seeing water flooding your house and not knowing how to turn the water off. We all have a shut-off valve in our garage. It has a yellow handle. If you do not currently shut off that value when you leave home for more than a day, try testing the value to make sure it works. It might be stuck if you do not regularly shut it off. A squirt of WD-40 might help loosen the value but make sure you know how to use it.

A SAD TRUTH

STAY SAFE THIS FLU SEASON - GET THE VACCINE

Times have changed and regrettably even as we reach our golden years, we have to be aware of our surroundings whether we are at home or away. As a Sun City resident, you are living in one of the safest communities in the Las Vegas Valley; yet you are cautioned to be aware of your surroundings.

Flu season is fast-approaching, and it will be important that everyone takes the proper measures to ensure safety as we near the fall and winter months. People 65 years and older, people with chronic health conditions, people who are pregnant, and children have the highest risk of experiencing complications of the flu. Don't wait! Get your flu shot today. Symptoms of the flu and differences from COVID-19

Below are just a few tips to remember as you go about your daily lives.

Both COVID-19 and the flu share these symptoms:

Be very careful about e n g a g i n g o r interacting with a stranger. Although these encounters can be very innocent, you do not know the motive behind the encounter; so, it is best to move on. When you are turning into the community, take a second to see if someone is following you. If a car keeps turning down the same streets you do, the car could be suspicious or it could be your neighbor. If it appears that you are being followed, you may want to drive around the block to verify that the car is still following you. If the car continues to follow you, only the police can stop a suspicious vehicle; so, consider calling 9-1-1. Do not pull in your driveway until you are sure the car is not following you. Consider closing your garage door before you exit your car. It is an extra layer of safety you have once the garage door is shut. No one can enter the garage. When you pull out of your garage, look up and down the street to see if a vehicle is watching your exit. Just do not look at the traffic but run your eyes along the street. Is there an occupied car at the curb? If you think someone is watching you leave, take a minute and drive around the block and past your residence again. Recent home burglaries in Sun City Aliante have occurred within minutes of people leaving their residence. When an unknown person rings your doorbell, acknowledge you are at home but never open a door to a stranger. A solicitor needs a business license/permit and must have some form of company identification or clothing of the company. Ask for it through a locked door or tell them you are not interested. A peddler (salesperson) is a person who is selling something door to door and wants to complete a financial transaction at the door. Peddlers are not as active today because people do not make on the spot purchases, but they are still out there. Be aware and use your best judgement when dealing with peddlers. For information regarding the Sun City Aliante Patrol, contact the Patrol Chairman Phil Zanello at zp9@aol.com or 702-460-9582.

• • • • • •

Fever or feeling feverish/having chills Cough S hortnes s of b reath o r difficulty breathing Fatigue (tiredness) Sore throat Runny or stuffy nose

• • • • •

Muscle pain or body aches Headache Vomiting Diarrhea Change in or loss of taste or smell, although this is more frequent with COVID-19

The main difference between COVID-19 and the flu is the onset of symptoms. People infected with the flu can experience symptoms abruptly, anywhere between one to four days. Those with COVID-19 may experience symptoms anywhere between two to 14 days after infection. If you are unsure about whether you have the flu or COVID19, a COVID-19 test is recommended to figure out which illness you have. Importantly, the COVID-19 virus is more contagious than the flu virus – but generally, you should follow health and safety protocols to avoid getting sick with either illness.

Prevention of the flu

Everyone six months old and older should get the annual flu shot to best combat the virus. Even if you get a breakthrough case of the flu, the symptoms tend to be milder if you had the flu shot than without it. Call your primary care clinic or nearest retail pharmacy to learn how to get your flu shot today – you may not even need to make an appointment! Intermountain's myGeneration clinic teams will have the flu vaccine available starting September 1 and will host vaccination drives for established patients on specific dates throughout flu season.

The flu shot is safe, as are all vaccines

Even if you get vaccinated, remember to follow healthy protocols to avoid the flu. Washing your hands often with soap and water is one way to avoid catching and spreading the flu. Another way is to avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Disinfecting high-touch surfaces also helps, and make sure to cover your mouth and nose when sneezing and coughing. Most importantly, if you get sick, stay home to avoid contact with anyone else unless it is to seek medical attention. Physical distancing remains the best way to avoid spreading the flu. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends staying home until your fever is gone for 24 hours. Follow these steps to maintain a safe and healthy flu season.

CHARTERED CLUBS 8 BALLERS

8Ballers Intraclub Summer 2022 Tournament

Congratulations to Dwight Gerdes!

Congratulations to Dwight Gerdes! The Aliante 8Ballers gathered on Wednesday, June 22 for a singles, double elimination 8-ball contest. Over three hours of some spirited play (do not forget the pizza!) we saw our very own Dwight Gerdes march his way undefeated to the top position. Dwight saw some competition from a number of competitors and bested a tough Lane Smith to win 1st place. Congratulations Dwight on your terrific play and bragging rights as our 2022 Summer Champion!

The 100-plus summer temperatures get most players out as early as 6 a.m., where you might see 12 or more people hitting brightly colored, 40 holewiffle balls. If you linger long enough or walk nearby, you will wonder why there is so much laughter from all the people playing in the hot sun. Playing this game with the crazy name (which has no direct correlation to pickles: dill, sweet or otherwise) makes you want to “play one more game” but the sun and heat win out and send most players off the courts about 9:30 a.m. If you want to learn more about playing the game, come check them out. Be prepared to laugh a lot! Free beginner lessons will be offered in early September. Call Sarah Smith (702-635-4629) for details. Remember: “Laughter is Good Medicine!”

POKER CLUB

We had 16 club members on hand for this tournament, including, Jim Lange, Steven Popp, Herbert Mendez, John Scia, Jim Tillman, Gene Gustin, Dave Meteyer, Don Barclay, Vic Anderson, Vern Praus, John Burke, Art Davis, Dave Grossman, and Louis Cimo. Congratulations to all our participants for the outstanding play and sportsmanship throughout the event. Special thanks to our competition committee headed up by our club VP John Scia and his wife Terry for arranging for the terrific pizza and drinks. And to Jim Tillman, Vic Anderson, and Dave Meteyer for getting the tournament organized. And, thanks to our Community Center staff for assisting us with our luncheon setup and to our Sun City Aliante Board of Directors for providing our beautiful billiards area.

PICKLEBALL A resident recently overheard a conversation between two Sun City residents, one person stated that the pickleball courts are never used. This statement is absolutely untrue. If you have not seen people playing, it is probably because you are looking at the wrong time. Anyone who has concerns that our courts are not being used, please check the data that is tracked by the Association.

CHARTERED CLUBS VETERANS CLUB Greetings Friends, Neighbors and Fellow Veterans, Our guest speaker for our September 20 meeting will be Sun City Aliante resident Teke Sankey. He will discuss what he learned at a briefing of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) conducted in Washington, DC in July. DPAA keeps us informed about what is happening in North Korea regarding POW/MIAs, and if representatives from the agency will be able to visit and search for missing soldiers.

THE STEPPERS The Sun City Aliante Steppers performed at Red Rock Point, a beautiful new retirement community, on August 26. Members will compete in the dance section of the upcoming Nevada Senior Games on September 17. This year marks the third time the Steppers have participated in the Senior Games. The fact that they have won seven Gold Medals in this dance competition is a testimony to their talent. The Steppers are also preparing their new Christmas numbers for the yearly Christmas Tree Lighting celebration held in the Vista Room of the Aliante Community Center in December. The Steppers are looking for a few men and women to join their dance group. Classes are offered at no charge. You do not have to be proficient or a professional dancer… all you need is a love of dancing and a passion for having fun. Dancing is also a fantastic form of exercise and a great way to meet new people and bring joy to others. You can stop by and see the Steppers practice any Tuesday or Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Fitness Studio in the Sun City Aliante Community Center. For more information, contact Margo Young at jaxlady@hotmail.com.

TECHNOLOGY CLUB Please attend the next Technology Club meeting on Thursday, September 1, when the topic will be Smart Watches. Smart Watches are increasing in popularity and use. When some people think about Smart Watches, they are reminded of the comic strip Dick Tracy watch and how the characters could communicate with each other. Some people think of Smart Watches as a mobile computer on their wrist. Join members at the meeting and learn about the unique features of Smart Watches which include: • Keeping track of your health and fitness metrics such as steps, heart rate, blood pressure, etc. • Answering phone calls and text messages • Providing an extension to your smart phone • Learning the differences between Apple iWatch and Samsung Smart Watch If you are a current Smart Watch owner, please come and speak about your experiences. For those of you who do not own a Smart Watch, we will discuss some differences between the Apple iWatch and the Samsung Smart Watch. Hopefully, you will gain enough information to decide if a Smart Watch is for you.

Teke will also discuss briefings he attended regarding World War II and other conflicts where soldiers were lost. In addition, he will share the story of what DPAA does and how they do it. Also, he will show a video narrated by Kevin Costner about the DPAA and give a short presentation of how he is involved in searching for a missing relative from the Korean War. If you are interested in participating in the Adopt- A-Flag program, please contact, Fred Schnelle at 661-510-9158. If you would like to purchase an engraved memorial brick in memory of a loved one to be installed at the Veteran's Monument, please contact, Sy Nielson at 702-234-9183. Important military observances for September 2022 include: September 11, 2022 - Patriot Day-An annual observance to remember and honor those who were injured or killed during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. September 16, 2022 – POW/MIA Recognition Day. September 18, 2022 – Air Force Birthday September 25, 2022 – Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day – A day to honor the families of fallen service members. W H Y VO L U N T E E R I N G I S I M P O RTA N T 4. Nonprofits Rely on Volunteers Volunteering is also critical to nearly all nonprofit organizations and charities. To put it into perspective, here are some statistics that show exactly how meaningful volunteers are to nonprofits: • Over 63 million Americans volunteer in some capacity (that is nearly 25 % of the adult population in the United States) • It is estimated that the time volunteers work is worth over $24/hour, which means that Americans contribute over $193 billion worth of volunteer work in their communities. Just by looking at these statistics, it is clear that the importance of volunteers in nonprofit organizations cannot be overstated. Nonprofits rely on them and need them. Membership in the Veteran's Club is open to any Resident Activity Card Holder. As the name implies, we are a club for members with an interest in Veteran's affairs. It is FUN AND IT IS FREE. The next meeting is September 20, 2022 at 6 p.m. in the Vista Room. See you at the meeting! LeRoy Munson Chairman, Veterans of Sun City Aliante
