“Where Neighbors Become Friends”

Club Fair at Desert Vista Ballroom

Wednesday, March 13,

Doors Open at 6 p.m.

Heads up, everyone! Whether you are new to Sun City Summerlin (SCS) or have been around for years, this month’s Residents’ Forum event is planned just for you! It’s time for the Annual Club Fair! Come and enjoy one of Residents’ Forum’s most popular events.

On Wednesday, March 13th, representatives from SCS clubs and organizations will be at Desert Vista to share information about their group.

This huge annual event offers a great opportunity to meet old friends and make some new ones while learning all about SCS clubs and community organizations. If you have an interest or a hobby, chances are you’ll find one group (or more) to join. SCS is an active community, so get involved. Find a new interest, hobby, or volunteer opportunity.

Residents’ Forum is pleased to host this event annually along with others throughout the year. All residents of SCS

are members of the Residents’ Forum. Monthly programs are interesting, fun, and open to all residents at no charge. We receive no funding from SCS and always appreciate your donations.

For more information about the Club Fair, contact Julie Zerbel, President of Residents’ Forum, and chair for this event.



There is no better time to find a reason to laugh, even if it’s because of own our little gaffe.

To laugh at ourselves is sometimes the best, and that’s when we know just how truly we‘re blessed.

We remember as kids, I’m sure everyone knows, we’d laugh so hard milk would even come out our nose!

We giggled at things that were simple or dumb –t’was so easy back then to find little things fun. Seems that being a ‘grown-up’ has come with a price.

We learned to be civil, and to always be nice. Today life is different; it can throw us a curve.

We find we may face things we just don’t deserve. The problems we face can overwhelm us at times, and the good life we planned can just turn on a dime. A good sense of humor can often be lost when life does go awry, it can come at a cost.

So perhaps more than ever, we need to reflect and try to remember, to just do a check when a belly laugh caught us a little off guard, and not just a smile, when we laughed really hard!

But we need to re-group, and dig deep just to find a reason to laugh and, once again, just un-wind. Perhaps we should start with ourselves, in a way to laugh at ourselves when we start off our day.

But to laugh at ourselves and the mistakes that we make, we could just choose to pause and give ourselves a laugh brake!

We are no longer kids, and ‘milk’ may not be our choice but a laugh now and then in the sound of our voice could make all the difference in the rest of our day if we just looked at things in a less serious way. They say, “life is short”, and the older we get we look at life differently, more somber, and yet could we just take the time to find humor in life and relieve grown-up stress, and forget about strife? It’s not always easy, and it depends on your views, and it ain’t always easy if you turn on the news!

But here’s to the days that one thing comes to mind that could just make you laugh - take a break from the grind!

May we all find a reason to laugh now and then –and be thankful for those when it comes to day’s end.

Join the Celebration! March is National Nutrition Month®

National Nutrition Month® is an annual campaign by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. During the month of March, everyone is encouraged to learn more about making healthier food choices. This year’s theme is “Beyond the Table,” which focuses on all the various ways we eat–not only in the home but also on the go.

Healthy eating is recommended throughout life, but it is especially important for older adults. Food is medicine—enjoying all the nutrients found in food reduces the risk by 80% of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Aging will look different for all of us, and it might have a different meaning to some people. Aging gracefully might mean staying physically healthy or mentally sharp. How to do this? We fuel our body with the nutrients it needs to function, grow, repair, and thrive.

There is a lot of dietary information available, and it can get confusing. Sometimes it is important to get back to the basics. So, in honor of National Nutrition Month®, let’s talk about the Six Basic Nutrients and what they do in our bodies.

1. Water helps regulate blood pressure and body temperature, carries blood and nutrients around the body, dissolves vitamins and minerals, and flushes waste. Most older adults need 20 to 25 mL per kilogram of body weight.

2. Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy and normally make up 45-65% of the diet. There are three types of carbohydrates: starch, fiber, and sugar. Starch and fiber are “complex” and include whole grains, beans, and vegetables. Sugar is “simple” and includes natural sugars like dairy and fruit, and added sugars found in sweets.

3. Fat provides energy, supports brain function, and helps dissolve vitamins and minerals. There are two types of fat—saturated, which are solid at room temperature, and unsaturated, which are liquid at room temperature. Saturated fats tend to be more inflammatory and come from animal foods. For heart health, no more than 6% of daily calories should come from saturated fat.

4. Proteins are needed for immune health and for every cell to function, grow, and repair. There are two types of protein–animal and plant–and both contain “complete” proteins. Animal proteins tend to contain more saturated fat, while plant proteins have more unsaturated fat. Most older adults need 0.8 to 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.

5. Vitamins are needed in small amounts for immune health and specific bodily function. For example, the eight watersoluble B vitamins help convert food into usable energy, while vitamin A supports eye and skin health. Most of the vitamins are only found in plant foods.

6. Minerals are also needed in small amounts for immune health and bodily function. Minerals like potassium help regulate blood pressure, while calcium helps with muscle contraction. Like vitamins, most of the minerals needed for optimal health are found in plant foods.

Come say hello and celebrate National Nutrition Month® March 27th at the Healthy Cooking Demo. Then starting in April, join me every month where I will teach more in-depth nutrition topics that can help older adults experience the benefits of eating healthier.

“As I See It . . . ”

The Good Ole Days?

Ah, I remember the “Good Ole Days”! Such wonderful memories... such delightful times.

I remember when... our family loaded up the car (a used Chevy) and went on a road trip to California. Many hours on the road, spotty A/C, fast food, and roadside motels... games for the kids and ear plugs for the adults.

I remember when... the holidays arrived and the entire family gathered for loving companionships, abundant food, singing, and laughter. There was a “kids table” until you were in college and some wine at the “adults” table.

Oh, so many memories... I have so many more to tell... “I remember when...”. You know, I also remember some less than happy times, but they were the “Good Ole Days” also because we all pulled together, family and friends, and brought some light to the darkness. We helped and supported each other, and I wouldn’t trade any of my memories for anything. There is so much to reflect on and to fondly remember the good and lessthan-good things in our lives.

I often urge folks to write or record their stories of “The Good Ole Days” for the generations to come, because they are our history, and our descendants will be eternally grateful for our labors and thoughtfulness. All this started me thinking... you know, months and years from now, we will look back on TODAY as the “Good Ole Days”, and it feels to me like that is our challenge. The PAST is actually gone, but we do have TODAY... what will we do with it to make it a “Good Ole Day” that we will want to remember in times to come? Will we do good for others? Will we enjoy ourselves? Will we create a positive reputation? Will we diminish the darkness with our light? Will we combat pain and suffering with caring and support?

I suppose some dwell on the past and fret about the future. The PAST is gone, the FUTURE hasn’t arrived yet, and we only have the PRESENT... it is a GIFT. We only have THE NOW. So, I am thinking that if we would decide that TODAY is precious, we could make our TODAYS into days that we can look back on with appreciation and affection and say, “Boy, those were The Good Ole Days... “I remember when I volunteered to help others at SCS or when I didn’t sit around and lament the past and took every opportunity to be involved and engaged with life... I remember when I found ways to learn, to enjoy, to celebrate”. Seems to me that we all have it in our power to make TODAY the memories we will cherish till our last day... and even cherished by those who follow us. I am up for the challenge... let’s do it together.

2023 Architectural Review Committee Year in Review

2023 was a busy year for the Architectural Review Committee (ARC). Moving forward, we thought you might be interested in learning what the committee members do on a day-to-day basis, and some of the accomplishments of our dedicated ARC Committee Members.

Application review and process

When an ARC application is submitted for approval, it must be reviewed and approved by three (3) committee members.

• 1/1/2023 – 12/31/2023 - 1,876 applications were reviewed and processed.


If project is denied during the review process, the applicant has the opportunity to appeal to the full committee for a variance at the next monthly meeting.

• 1/1/2023 – 12/31/2023 – 20 requests for variances were brought forward at the monthly meetings. Of those requests, 9 variances were granted.

Project Inspections

When 120 days have passed, the applications are divided between the committee members and the work is inspected to verify that the work was done as approved.

• 1/1/2023 – 12/31/2023 - 1,844 projects were inspected and closed.

Other ARC accomplishments

• Welcomed two (2) new ARC committee members to our committee.

• Revised/updated the Development Standards.

• Added nine (9) new exterior paint palette color schemes.

• Approved process and colors for concrete coatings.

Sun City Summerlin is as beautiful as it is because of its residents who generously volunteer their time to keep it that way. An enormous “Thank You” to our Architectural Review Committee for their part in these efforts. And a special “Thank You” to our residents who comply with the Standards to keep our community beautiful.

Political Signage

With another political season upon us, the following is to eliminate any confusion with what political signage is allowed in Sun City Summerlin.

The Sun City Summerlin Development Standards, which state our sign requirements, are in compliance with City of Las Vegas Code 19.06.140 and 19.08.129.

Consequently, residents are asked to conform to the SCSCAI 2023 Development Standards below, and the Nevada State Law and City of Las Vegas ordinance that takes precedence over our governing documents.

(a) Political signs on each Dwelling are permitted, one per candidate, political party, or ballot question;

(b) Must be located solely on Owner’s property; and

(c) Signs may be placed up to 60 days prior to election day and removed within 15 days following election day.

Any signage which deviates from the above will be considered a violation and will be treated as such.

Barbara Davidson, Director, Community Standards



Stop the World, I Want to Get Off (for at least a day)!

Do you remember, back in the day, party line connections for the phone? Neighbors sometimes listening in? “Get off the phone, I can hear you breathing!” LOL!

Over time, we had direct lines and then came cell phones. Ah! Cell phones, where one can be in touch 24/7, get notifications on all sorts of apps, do research, play games, text, ask directions and more. Let’s face it, not only are we living in a fast-paced world, but many of us see how it appears to be speeding up even more.

Friday, March 1st, is The National Day of Unplugging, which is unplugging from cell phones and all social media and taking a technology break for 24 hours beginning at sunset on Friday. Why might this be a good idea?

According to my research, here are some facts that you may find interesting:

TRUCE Software surveyed 1,500 employees across varying occupations nationwide to gauge how smart devices are influencing their workday. The survey identified both counterproductive and unsafe behaviors regarding mobile device usage on the job, including:

Ÿ Lingering in the car, the restroom or taking an extended break to finish reading or watching something on a phone before returning to work (57%).

Ÿ Taking work-related calls while driving to or from the job (51%).

Ÿ Hiding a phone while in a meeting to continue to check messages or text with a co-worker (24%).

Ÿ Tripping, bumping into something or someone or experiencing other embarrassing missteps while looking at a phone (18%).

According to, it’s easy to become addicted to social media because dopamine, the feel-good brain chemical, is released when you are on your favorite app or website. When the dopamine diminishes, you naturally want to go back to the source for more. The article goes on to say this is how the brain functions with all addictions.

Many of us of the older generation are generally not as addicted to cells or social media, but the suggestion is that one could easily turn to technology for comfort instead of connecting to real people no matter what the generation.

If March 1st is too inconvenient to unplug, any day you (or your family) decide to try this experiment, it may reveal how much more you are connected to technology than you imagined. If 24 hours is too much, pick a block of time every day to unplug if that feels more comfortable. A couple of resources suggest taking walks outside, reading a good book, playing a card game or experimenting with that recipe you never got to in the past, meditation, even cleaning out perhaps a closet or a drawer – anything you feel is beneficial for you to do to unplug and reconnect with yourself and loved ones. Embrace the power of ME time!

“True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment, and refreshment.”

Honoring Residents Corner: Barbara Mirman

Barbara is a native New Yorker. She grew up in Brooklyn, NY, where she met and married her husband.

Barbara’s first son was born in Brooklyn. Her other two sons were born in Rochester, NY, where her husband went to graduate school at the University of Rochester, in Rochester, New York.

Barbara moved to Sun City Summerlin in 2002. She worked as an accountant for the PBS Station, which is licensed to the Clark County School District. She has a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in Early European History. She continued her education and went on for her Master’s in Accounting at the University of Illinois, in ChampaignUrbana. She worked for the PBS Station in Las Vegas until she retired in 2011.

Barbara is very proud of her work with Metro Police. If Metro needs assistance at the scene of an accident, they will send Barbara a message during her volunteer shift to send a callout message to volunteers who are trained to go to the scene of the accident to help Metro. The trained volunteers will send a response to Barbara that they are going to help Metro.

Barbara also helps as a volunteer instructor for AARP Safe Driving Classes and AARP Tax Aide. She teaches AARP Safe Driving Classes in Sun City Summerlin and at other Senior housing centers. Barbara just finished training and taking the test to help seniors prepare their federal income taxes for 2023. She loves her volunteering schedule. Barbara likes to keep her mind busy, and she likes to

help people.

Living in Sun City Summerlin is good place for seniors. The Clubs help all the residents stay busy and interact with other people. The monthly Link Magazine helps residents be informed and to stay in touch with other services and businesses. There are two wonderful organizations in the Sun City Summerlin community: Sun City Volunteers and the Sunshine Service. Volunteers help residents with minor equipment repairs and other volunteers help residents to get to the doctor or to get prescriptions filled.

Barbara nominates Terry Carey for the next article in this series: Honoring Residents Corner.



Help Us Help You!!!

Blue sheet?? What is a blue sheet?

The Sun City Patrol continues to bring this paperwork to the attention of every resident of our community. It is a simple one page “fill-in-the-blanks”. All questions are easy to answer. It is SO important for each of us to keep the information on this Emergency Contact Sheet up to date. In fact, it actually can be a lifesaver! These blanks can be found online at under Resident Services-PatrolEmergency Contact Form. Or pick up a form at Sun City Patrol Base (far end of Desert Vista Community Center parking lot). It is white online but blue from patrol.

Too many folks put their family members living in another state in the emergency contact information, because they are the most important people in their lives. That is fine, HOWEVER; also take the time to meet one of your neighbors. Hopefully you feel comfortable enough to give them a house key and add them to your Emergency Contacts. What if a member of your family, say, from Texas, would call the patrol office and ask for us to help find you. With a local contact we may be able to set their mind at ease quickly. Our Sun City Patrol can only help you if you first help yourself.

Keep in touch with your friends and the persons living near you, so when you don’t show your face for a few days, they would question your absence sooner rather than later. Many of our residents live alone. VERY IMPORTANT; have a local person on your Emergency Contact form who has access to your home. Possibly have some sort of life alert system or carry your cell phone with you the next time you are taking a walk, or a shower, or some chores in the garage. Keep it by your bed at night or during a nap. It doesn’t take up much space. That will give you a way to call for help if you should need it. Add the patrol number to your list of VIPs already on your phone: 702-254-2303.

Sun City Summerlin Patrol is so much more than you might think. We are the folks who want everyone to enjoy Sun City Summerlin. We are not the police; we are neighbors helping neighbors. If you need help, please call 911. We have a unique position in our community. We care, we are committed, and we are on call 24/7!


When you leave your home on a dark and dreary night to exercise your pooch just once more, please be sure you are wearing something that will be seen by drivers. Also dress your dog in a reflective or lighted leash and collar.

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.

From Ozmin’s Triumph aria with the lowest notes written for a singer at that time, to aria Martern Aller Arten, which Emperor Joseph II described at the time as having too many notes. Mozart famously replied, “It has just as many notes as it should have”. This promises to be another thrilling evening of quality music for those of us who are fortunate enough to enjoy Opera.

Hiking Club

FREE Introduction to Hiking Begins

April 17

Your spouse hikes. Your friends hike. YOU want to hike!

Hiking is fun and benefits your health. Some people are reluctant to start hiking because they don’t know where to start, what equipment is needed, or they lack confidence in their fitness level or local trail knowledge. Most will agree that just heading to a trail and taking off can have bad results for the inexperienced hiker.

That is why the Sun City Summerlin Lone Mountain Hiking Club (LMHC) is bringing back our free “Introduction to Hiking” program – a comprehensive introduction to hiking safely and responsibly. The course will begin with one classroom session followed by a series of hikes (schedule to be determined) that increase in difficulty, including factors such as distance, terrain, and elevation gain. The number of hikes offered throughout the series will depend on the progress and needs of the participants.

According to Cleveland Clinic the health benefits of hiking are numerous, including:

• Reducing risk of heart disease

• Combating diabetes

• Reducing anxiety & depression

• Improving arthritis

• Lowering blood pressure

• Tackling obesity

• Improving sleep

• Helping with balance

• Building strong muscles and bones

A top benefit is the comradery. It is great to be a part of a group who have a positive attitude, care about you, encourage you and sincerely want you to succeed.

The in-class session is April 17, at 9 a.m., Desert Vista Room 2. It will be immediately followed by a one-to-three-mile hike on a paved surface in nearby Pueblo Park. You must pre-register, be a Sun City Summerlin resident and, if you are new to the Hiking Club, attend the first session to participate in the remainder of the series. Current LMHC members are not required to attend the in-class session. However, we do ask that you pre-register so that we can maintain email contact for the first two hikes.

The in-class session is limited to 20 participants and requires that non-member attendees sign a release of liability waiver. After the second hike you will be asked to join LMHC, paying the $5 annual dues, should you want to continue the program. If interest dictates, we will hold future Intro courses.

Please contact Lisa Brew-Miller to learn more about this program and to register. or 707-477-8059.

Racquetball Club LIGHT

the opposing player(s) can’t hit it back to the front wall before it bounces twice. One can hit the ball onto any wall or the ceiling, on its way to the front wall - just not the floor before the front wall. Games are played to scores of 7, 11, 15, or 21, as the players desire, to help minimize inactive player waiting time.

Racquetball Club members

Racquetball - Fun For All!

and Club member since September 2023

Do you want to get some fun exercise with nice people? Do you hate it when it’s too hot outside, or too cold, rainy, windy, or too dark? If you said yes, then you should join our Sun City Summerlin Racquetball Club!

Racquetball is played in our indoor, heated, and airconditioned court. The weather is always perfect in the court! There’s music and ice water while you watch and learn from other players and an indoor hot tub steps away, to relax in after game(s).

Never played racquetball? No problem! We have veteran players, happy to teach beginners the ins and outs of racquetball. The only thing you’ll need to start is exercise-type clothing and athletic shoes with non-marking soles - we like to keep our beautiful facility looking great! Our fitness center has free loaner equipment available. Once you try (and love it!), you’ll want to get your own equipment, which is very affordable.

Racquetball is played with a racquet, a hollow rubber ball and no net. Players must hit the ball anywhere on the front wall during play. The court's walls, floor, and ceiling are legal playing surfaces. Racquetball is played between players who try to hit the ball so it strikes the front wall in such a way that

Racquetball is played by two, three, or four players at a time. Doubles (the four-player game) is played most frequently by our Club members. Doubles requires less player movement, and is favored by folks with limited mobility, or for those just learning the game. CutThroat and Iron-Man, (three-player racquetball), is played when the number of players favors it. Singles is played by just two players.

If you have played racquetball before and are considering playing again, we can help you refresh your game. In addition to regular clinics, fellow players are always happy to provide pointers. There’s always something new to learn and strategies to try out!

Racquetball Club members (only $10 annual dues!) have exclusive use of the racquetball court Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to Noon. Some members play once or twice a week, others play every day. Players play with others of similar playing ability to ensure fun and fairness.

The court is open, at any non-Club time, to any Sun City Summerlin resident (or guest) by reservation with the Mountain Shadows Fitness monitor from 6 a.m.- 9 p.m., 7 Days.

Please come by to learn, play, or just watch. Contact Club President, Pete Ruopp, at (419) 4205175 or email if you’d like to arrange a FREE lesson.

We welcome people of all ages, experience, and fitness levels.

Your serve!

David Droker
