Welcoming Sun City Summerlin’s 2024-2025 Board Of Directors

What is the Board of Directors? The Sun City Summerlin Community Association, Inc.’s Board of Directors is an unpaid voluntary team of homeowners elected by the Association members to administer the assets and oversee the management of the Association. They are responsible for approving the annual budget and ensuring our facilities are maintained. The President of the Board is its Chairperson.

How Does the Board of Directors Work? Directors hold monthly board meetings. They propose and approve policies, authorize expenditures, and determine major community-interest decisions. Board Members have staggered terms, with three of the nine positions elected each year for a three-year term.

Why Does the Board of Directors Matter? The Board of Directors has a fiduciary duty to the Association’s members. Per Nevada Statutes, this means “In the performance of their duties, the officers and members of the executive board are fiduciaries and shall act on an informed basis, in good faith and in the honest belief that their actions are in the best interest of the Association.” By law, Board Members are the only community members who have the authority and fiduciary responsibility to ensure the community’s long-term relevance and help protect Association property values.

Committees, Liaisons, Resident Volunteers: Sun City Summerlin has standing committees which are responsible for providing the Board with evaluation, suggestions, proposals, research, and recommendations. Each committee is dedicated to specific functions and processes. Board Members rely on resident volunteers who make up the committees’ working team to enhance the Association’s operations.

Architectural Review Committee (ARC)

Ellen Bachman, Chairwoman • ecb322@gmail.com

Members of ARC have specific duties that are mandated by the CC&Rs. They maintain the Development Standards of the community and approve all applications for exterior work done by homeowners. Following completion, they review the project to confirm that it complies with the application and the Governing Documents.

ARC meets on the third Wednesday of each month, 9:00 a.m.

Legal meets on the second Thursday of the month at 11:00 a.m.


John Berthelsen, Chairman • jb4sc@hotmail.com

The Hearing Committee, appointed by the Board, serves as the delegated authority to hear formal complaints alleging violations of the Governing Documents. This can include property, code of conduct, or other matters. The committee has the authority to access fines if so deemed. In some cases, the committee will forward a complaint to the master Board for determination.

Hearing meetings are closed.


The committee carries out general oversight of the Association’s delinquent assessment accounts and property violations.

Link Editorial Board

Erik Braun, BOD Liaison • braunbod@gmail.com

The committee follows Nevada Statutes and our CC&Rs as to how it functions and performs. It meets as is needed. The committee operates at an arm’s length from the Board and staff.


“As I See It . . . ”

Things Are Different Now

Almost 3 years ago, Mitzi asked me, “What different things are you doing, now that we have COVID upon us?” My answer was that I was not doing different things... but rather that I was doing things differently. (Either she loved that answer OR she just needed a volunteer writer for the LINK – I still don’t know which!)

At any rate, here we are 33 months later, and I am still putting my thoughts on paper for the LINK. I have been thinking lately. You know what? Things really are different now. A recent study showed that only 1 in 4 people say their lives are completely back to normal! I can see some negative changes that make some more anxious and cranky, in the same way as those who lived through the Great Depression, never seemed to view money in the same way again. Sixty years after the crash of 1929, my folks still watched every penny as if it could disappear without warning... just as we now are more careful to go in crowds and are more diligent to get our flu and other shots.

But lately, I have realized that things really are different... I see all the wonderful things that are different now, and I am so grateful for them. (As you probably know, I have always believed that GRATITUDE is the most powerful, transformative, and beneficial attitude ever available to us! It is so good for us... and so great for the others around us.)

So here are just some of the things we can celebrate as wonderful and positive aspects of our lives TODAY!

Ÿ We place a renewed value of life – we take nothing for granted – there are no promises of tomorrow.

Ÿ We are less willing to stay on the couch... we realize that today is a gift - are we going to waste it?

Ÿ We always cherished our loved ones, but there is an even greater urgency to not waste a second with them or miss one opportunity to create loving and lasting memories.

Ÿ This is the perfect time to rethink what’s most important in our lives. Funny how sometimes we waste our time on emotions or activities which really don’t matter that much in the scheme of things, and which do not bring us satisfaction and joy. This is a good time to shed the negatives in our lives which sap our energy and zest for life.

Ÿ Could there be a better time to ‘‘fulfill our bucket lists” than today? Now? ASAP? While we can? It would be such a shame to have to say “I wish I had... “or “I could have... “.

Ÿ We can put things in perspective. We obviously attend to the big things in our lives... so now we can be sure we savor all the small moments – we might find out they are the ones that matter the most – seeing the sunset or smelling the flowers or sharing a smile are HUGE – do we take them for granted?

We sure found out that things change suddenly and without warning. Nowadays we can be more open to change – the change WE want and create. Now we can live sort of “designer lives” and WE are the designers!!

We all have survived some challenging times and perhaps even some sadnesses, yet we have survived, and now we have the opportunity (yes, even the obligation) to learn and grow and share alongside our loved ones and friends. Life is a gift... unwrap it, enjoy it, and share it.

April is National Volunteer Month

National Volunteer Month in April celebrates the impact volunteers have on our lives and encourages active volunteerism in generations to come. Volunteers generously donate a part of their lives to do the work that nobody else likes to do. Volunteering inspires words like helping community, people in need, service, time, energy, giving back, and a sense of purpose. This month, we salute them for their unwavering services to businesses and communities and hold aloft their examples to inspire others towards volunteerism.

There are many areas and institutions requiring volunteers. In our community volunteers serve as HOA and Sub-HOA board members, club officers and organizers, committee members, and so much more. Without the active participation of these people, our community would not be the outstanding one that it is. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Sun City Summerlin, and we couldn’t function without them.

On the following pages, there is a list of the homeowners who serve on the various committees we have here in Sun City Summerlin. The commitment that they have made towards maintaining and improving our community is greatly appreci-

ated. They provide the foundation for how our HOA functions and develops. We greatly appreciate all of them!

The Mayo Clinic published some important health benefits that come from volunteering. These included improving physical and mental health, providing a sense of purpose, and nurturing new and existing relationships. Volunteering can provide a greater increase in life satisfaction and self-esteem. And dedicating time as a volunteer helps expand your social network, and practice social skills with others.

Here in Sun City Summerlin, we benefit from the career experience of our committee volunteers who provide expertise and knowledge in making decisions that impact our administration, quality of life, property values, and future direction. It is a remarkable and highly valuable resource for us all. Similarly, our master and sub board members draw on a variety of experiences to help provide leadership for the community. Without that active participation, we would have a completely different (and not very desirable) experience living here.

If you are one of our active volunteer residents, we thank you. If you have been thinking about more active participation, we encourage you to step up and do so. If you simply want to enjoy your retirement without active involvement, please consider thanking those that help create the environment you enjoy.

A big thank you to all our 2023-2024 SCSCAI volunteers. You make our community the great place to live that it has been and will continue to be.

You & Your Dog - Spreading the Love

Do you have a little extra time to spare? Would you

like to make a big difference in someone’s life, while at the same time spending some quality time with your dog? We all know the healing power of our own pets, be they dogs, cats, birds, fish or any other animal, and I have written in the past about the unconditional love that pets can offer us. However, I recently came across Dog Therapy Appreciation Day on April 11, 2024, and was curious to learn about the benefits of dog therapy. I had no idea of the scope of blessings these dogs can bring.

The history of therapy pets can be traced back to as early as 600 BC. The Greeks were the first to notice that the presence of horses seemed to lift the spirits of seriously ill patients.

In Notes on Nursing, published in 1860, Florence Nightingale introduced the concept of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) in her work. In the 1600s, physicians used horses to improve the physical and mental health of patients. Sigmund Freud, for example, was fascinated with the bond between people and dogs. In a thesis he wrote in 1933 regarding the concept of the human-animal bond, he said that people require interaction with animals. Freud was very fond of his own dogs and used them to soothe his patients suffering from anxiety. His work, in turn, ignited a drive towards

further research into more formal studies concerning dog therapy.

By the 1940s, the American Red Cross had been using farm animals to treat war veterans suffering from injury or illness, and therapeutic animals continue to be used to this day. I suspect as we continue to learn further about how beneficial animals are in helping humans, we will see more and more animals used for this service.

Any dog can be a therapy dog as long as the dog has a good personality towards people and is receptive to training.

According to Healthcare Business Today, approximately 81.8% of autistic children prefer to play with dogs, the dogs helping to calm them to actually access common human emotions while playing with the pets. The article goes on to say that when dogs are paired with children who have learning challenges, the children improve their reading skills as they read to the dog in a judgment-free zone.

We already know the benefits of what a therapy dog can do for hospital patients and for residents in assisted living. Many studies have been done that reflect the joy that therapy dogs bring to these environments.

In addition, while it is a federal crime to misrepresent your dog as a service dog, there are many benefits you and your dog may receive as a result of this training and volunteering; therapy dogs are allowed in restaurants, airplanes and even landlords are required to waive an animal restriction if the dog has the proper credentials.

What an amazing way to give back to the world by spreading the deep love you have for your dog!

If you are interested in having your dog participate in the therapeutic process of bringing love and joy to others, listed below is a source for you to explore regarding educational requirements, licenses and registration.

We remember the days when there WERE record stores –those days are long gone and don’t exist anymore. We could stop in to browse what the charts showed back then –...from the Platters, Brenda Lee, to Dion’s “Where or When”.

78’s were still sold, then 45’s came to be –...technology in progress – what comes next? Let us see... There were songs on the radio we could now have at home with no option to simply download on our phone!

Then along came Hi-Fi’s, and the sound sure improved, the music was changing as did our dance moves.

Before long we had stereos, bigger than most TV’s took up one whole wall, displayed for all to see. Then 8 tracks appeared, and devices soon changed, but the cross-over bleed could make listening quite strange. We progressed to cassettes, so much smaller in size as we carried our Walkman, and our shirts were tie-died! We made our mixed tapes and were ever so proud –and our parents complained – “Turn it down, it’s too loud!”

Soon we’re burning CD’s we could play in our car and so, now today, let us see where we are. We seem to get music just out of thin air –with your phone or computer, and it seems to be there. The stores seemed to fade; Tower Records are gone. How we listened got smaller, but we still sing along. We can tune in and listen anywhere, anytime, or download it forever from Amazon Prime.

We bought needles, or cleaners, records came in all speeds. There were stores where we’d go that fulfilled all our needs. Record stores now extinct, just like Radio Shack. Same as payphones and Disco - and there’s no going back. Perhaps the next step is an implant device where a tap on the wrist will now play something nice. I do miss the time there were stores we would shop and they’d put on the record, maybe “Queen of the Hop”?

Marvin Gaye, Buddy Holly - vinyl records were king –when record stores were a “few of my favorite things”! So many things changed and the Internet rules and our lives overwhelmed with some intricate tools. But here’s to the memories of the days we once knew –the good old days now belong to just me and you!



Welcome to Pool Season 2024

It’s April. The warm weather months are ahead, and our beautiful outdoor pools are open for the season. It’s the season to relax around the pool with friends, enjoy the sun and water exercise. But before you pack up your pool gear, we’d like to offer some reminders to help you enjoy your time at the pool.

All pools are maintained in accordance with rules and requirements of the Southern Nevada Health District, which include taking a warm, cleansing shower before entering the water. Additional Southern Nevada Health District rules can be found on signs posted in all pool areas. A brochure containing Sun City Summerlin pool and spa rules, and etiquette may be obtained from the Fitness Center Monitor on duty. We encourage you to become familiar with these and abide by them. You can find schedules for operating hours, classes and club activities published each month in the Link Magazine.

Wear proper bathing attire and bring dedicated shoes for your time poolside. Street shoes track in dirt and contaminants. If you wish to wear shoes in the water, use dedicated water walking or canvas shoes that are not worn outside.

Guests are welcome. You can obtain Guest Passes at the Fitness Center’s Monitor Desk or – if you are unable to accompany your guests – through the Fitness Department office. Familiarize your guests with all rules.

Children are welcome at the Pinnacle Pool, Desert Vista Indoor Pool and the Mountain Shadows Pool. To enter the pool or pool area, all children must be at least 42 inches tall without shoes. Children’s hours are published in the Link Magazine and Sun City Summerlin rule brochures available from the Fitness Monitor.

Marked pool lanes are assigned by the Monitor and limited to 30-minutes if others are waiting. Be respectful of others who are waiting for their turn.

You’ll see some new furniture at the pools this season, as well as many chairs and chaises that were refurbished over the winter. Enjoy using them while at poolside and please be

mindful that others may be waiting, especially during busy times.

One final note, summer can mean thunderstorms and there may be times when the Monitor must clear the pool area for everyone’s safety.

Our Fitness Monitors are well trained. Their job is to carry out the rules fairly for everyone’s benefit and to help all residents have a safe and enjoyable time at the pool.

We look forward to seeing you.

Norman Wright Looks Ahead As He Turns 75

Norman (Norm) shares a life-changing story about a teenager named Hector Del Valle. At 17, Hector was drinking and driving when his vehicle crashed in 1982. Hector became a quadriplegic (no use of his body from the chest down). Norm met Hector six weeks later. Hector said: “What you see is what you get. Where do we go from here?” Seeing the potential to rehabilitate and go on with his life the focus was on vocational rehabilitation. Hector wanted to become an advocate against drunk driving.

After leaving the rehabilitation hospital Hector returned to high school to finish his degree. Norm helped write the speech Hector delivered to his high school graduating class about the dangers of drinking and driving. Two national networks and the New York newspapers covered his graduation speech. The next day, Hector got a call from President Reagan congratulating him on his mission to help others. During the next two years, Hector and Norm worked with the New Jersey Governor and the Bergen County Council on Alcoholism. Auto insurance procured a van so Hector could visit New Jersey high schools to deliver his message: Don’t drink and drive! In 1984, President Reagan was running for reelection. Hector was invited to share the stage with the President (at his former high school). It made National news again! Norm was invited as Hector's only guest.

Norm’s Greatest Accomplishment: Helping Hector realize his dreams. Hector went on to college and got his Master’s in Social Services. Forty-two years later Hector remains a happy, productive citizen offering help to others!

Norm is very proud to be a male R.N. (he became one back in the 1970s) and later served as Director of Nursing. Norm and his wife Barbara moved to Sun City Summerlin 10 years ago working as the Director of Nursing at Mountain View Care

Center in Boulder City. The drive was tedious, so he found a job closer to home and drove his golf cart to nearby Royal Springs returning to his roots working in Infection Prevention (IP). In 2016, Norm was the runner-up in IP care. In 2018, he was awarded IP leader by the March of Dimes, and in 2023 he received a lifetime achievement award.

Norm got his FCC ham license (K7NOR) last year and he continues to volunteer his time. He is on the Board of the Nevada Nurses Association and writes articles on IP. In our community, Norm is on the CCOC committee, the Link Editorial Board, and the Neighborhood Preparedness Team. Norm enjoys working with the different clubs, with Mitzi, and residents to promote Sun City Summerlin as an active, vibrant community that supports each other as we go through life changes. “Neighbors helping neighbors, is the goal,” says Norm.

About 25 years ago, Norm was working with a patient in a wheelchair, unable to walk. He said: “I wish I had done xyz… when I was physically able to.” Those words hit Norm hard. He adopted the mantra: “Get out there and do it. Don’t let fear stop you. Focus on the positive.” Norman went skydiving a few weeks ago. It was on his bucket list as he approached his 75th birthday. In fact, when President George H.W. Bush celebrated his 75th birthday by skydiving, Norman said to himself: “If I make it to 75, I’m going skydiving.” And he did. Go to this link to see a video of the jump https://youtu.be/DDe9-rHpeLY .

Norm looks back on his life and shares this valuable quote: “Focus on what you have, not what you don’t have.”

Solar Panels Highlights Requirements:

Ÿ Read and understand the Sun City Summerlin Development Standards as they pertain to Solar installations. Pay particular attention to the requirement to install “Bird Mesh” around the perimeter edges of the panels to stop pigeons and rodents from nesting beneath the panels.

Concerns with pigeon nesting and feeding are well known in our community. In fact, feeding pigeons is banned throughout the City of Las Vegas and can result in fines upwards of $1000. This ban illustrates the City’s concerns for safety, health and damage issues that are known to be caused by pigeons.

Over the months the Community Standards Office has seen a steady flow of new Solar installation applications. Las Vegas reportedly has perfect weather to generate adequate electricity to help offset increasing electrical costs and, Sun City Summerlin residents have taken notice.

The news media is quick to report the pros and cons of the Solar phenomenon and there’s no shortage of reports of good and bad. We are not here to debate any of the generalities but wish to provide insights from our own experiences in dealing with the Solar application process.

Ÿ Read the contractual fine print! The pages-long contracts have some interesting tidbits that often go unnoticed. They need to be read and, more importantly, they need to be understood.

Ÿ With Sun City Summerlin now 35 years old, many of our roofs are reaching the end of their original life expectancies. Roof repair warranties need to be understood. Know that a 25–30-year-old roof has its limitations and understand exactly what roof repairs are covered under the Solar warranty.

Ÿ Many Solar companies are doing business in Sun City Summerlin. According to Forbes, over 100 Solar companies filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. in 2023. Consider if your installer will be around to honor your warranty!

Ÿ Solar panels have a diminishing life span. Panels require ongoing cleaning and maintenance to help prolong their efficiencies.

The following is excerpted from a reputable Solar Panel Cleaning and Pigeon Mitigation website: Damage to Property: Because pigeon droppings are highly acidic, they can cause corrosive damage to buildings and homes. Also, nests can block gutters and drainage which can led to floating and other water damages.

Health Issues: Pigeons can be a serious health hazard for humans. They carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans through bird droppings or directly by pigeons. When the droppings dry out, they produce harmful particles in the air that can cause respiratory problems in humans.

Fire Risk: The materials that pigeons use to build nests, i.e., twigs, roots, and leaves, are more prone to catch fire. Also, pigeons usually nest in chimneys or hot places which can easily lead to fire.

We hope you find this information useful.

Paws . . . Attended one of Las Vegas Metro’s “First Tuesday” presentations and was introduced to Leico, an 8-year-old Belgian Malinois (breed of dog). He and his handler, Officer Carrillo, work hard for our community everyday as part of the K-9 Division of the police force. That dog had a way of looking at people, showing his absolute resolution as a full partner to his handler.

There are seventeen K-9 police persons here in Las Vegas, skilled in sharing their duties with their dogs. Each handler has two dogs, one a patrol canine, the other, a detection pooch. The dogs live with their people 24/7. They do the hard work of helping to apprehend criminals, or sniffing out drugs, bombs, or humans. Most of the four-footed officers come to our city via Europe, as that is where the majority of police dogs are bred. They are quite expensive, beginning at $20,000 for a basic beginner. The dogs continue training every day, while on full duty.

A confirmed important part of a protection force, these officers and their partners can diffuse a tragic situation in moments. Look around for a chance to see a demonstration of The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Patrol Dog Division. Scams . . . Once again we are asking that you be aware of those incessant scammers who want to make your life miserable while taking your money! If you get a phone call or a letter or an email that sounds too good to be true; it likely is. DO NOT SEND FUNDS to folks you do not know. Their goal is to strip your accounts and fatten theirs. They are good at their work; they have lots of experience and plenty of success. Don’t you be their next victim!

Service . . . Where is the Volunteer Row? That would be the low building at the very end of Desert Vista Community Center parking lot. If you need help on a huge variety of matters, your answers may be found there.

Center of the building is

the headquarters for Sun City Summerlin Patrol. This amazing group patrols our community 24/7. Program this number into your phone 702-254-2303, you can contact us anytime. We are not police, but we are “Neighbors helping Neighbors”.

To the left of the patrol offices is The Sunshine Club. This wonderful group lends select equipment that may be needed for medical reasons or for the occasional house guest. They have walkers, wheelchairs, canes, etc. that can be borrowed for 2 months with a possible extension. In addition, they have baby furniture that helps for a visiting family for 2 weeks - no renewal. If you need card tables and chairs, they can also be borrowed for 6 days. If you end up with extra nonperishable food items, those are donated to the Salvation Army. Aluminum pop tops go to Ronald McDonald house.

To the other side of Patrol is the office for Sun City Charities. They assist residents in a number of ways! Need a ride to the doctor, they can schedule that, need a light bulb changed, they will do that. Need a smoke alarm battery inserted, one of the volunteers can do that also. These services are free to our residents, but donations are welcome. Be sure to call ahead of time to get on the schedule.

These organizations always welcome volunteers just like you at any time. Please drop by, visit with the different groups and you may find the perfect fit!

Some of the things we do for the Sun City Summerlin Community:

•Being the eyes and ears of Sun City Summerlin.

•Observe and report suspicious activity.

•Provide house checks when residents are away.

• Remind residents to close garage doors at night.

Below is a story about our biking club using ChatGPT, with lots of inputs and help from our members. Enjoy!!!

Welcome to our Bike Club, a vibrant community born 12 years ago from the enthusiasm of outdoor lovers. We’ve grown from a handful of hiking club members to a diverse group of cyclists, sharing a passion for adventure and the great outdoors.

Our rides offer something for everyone, whether you're a fan of e-bikes or traditional road bikes. We embark on 20-mile journeys that last about 2 hours, including a leisurely break in one of the scenic parks dotting our route. With a pace of 11 to 12 mph, we strike a perfect balance between challenge and enjoyment.

We meet at Desert Vista on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Sun Shadows on Saturdays. See Link Magazine for current start times. Our routes are thoughtfully chosen to ensure safety and breathtaking views. Steve Cherry, our past president, suggested adding links of recent ride reports to a few of our favorite destinations (Calico Basin and Floyd Lamb Park), featuring lots of great pictures. Input the links manually: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/146950077 and https://ridewithgps.com/trips/113663315.

Beyond our regular rides, some members participate in events like the Honor Ride for Vets, 3 Ft for Pete, Tour of Summerlin, Memorial Ride, and the Nevada Park to Park Ride. This adds a sense of community and purpose to our cycling endeavors. The inclusion of e-bikes has welcomed cyclists of varying fitness levels into our 55 Plus Age community, ensuring that everyone can keep pace, regardless of age or ability.

During a ride, our bike club sprang into action when we witnessed a bus driver being attacked by a passenger. We intervened, chasing the assailant away, and promptly called 911. While a member followed the suspect to guide the police, others stayed to comfort the driver, jokingly offering whiskey for the pain until help arrived. This moment of bravery and quick thinking underscored our club's spirit: more than cyclists, we're a community ready to support and protect.

Joining us means more than just cycling; it’s about safety, camaraderie, and the joy of exploration. It's about living life to the fullest, surrounded by friends who share your passion. Ready for your next adventure? It starts with us. For more information, please e-mail Gary Trowbridge at: scsbikeclub@gmail.com.
