Cocktail walk, golf tourney to benefit Leach Memorial Fund

The Dan Leach Memorial Fund is hosting two events this week to raise funds to support local youths.

The Old Town Cocktail Walk is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $20 per person and include four drinks at participating downtown locations: Evan’s Old Town Grille, Boulder Dam Brewing Co., Jack’s Place Sports Bar and Grill, Milo’s Cellar and Inn, and The Dillinger.

Tickets may be purchased in advance or in front of the Chamber of Commerce Friday before the event.

The annual Dan Leach Memorial Golf Tournament will be held Saturday at Boulder Creek Golf Course. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.

The tournament follows a scramble format with golf-themed prizes for the winning foursomes. Additional prizes will be awarded on designated holes for longest drives, closest to the pin and longest putts. The round culminates with a dinner and silent auction at Boulder Creek.

Entry fees of $125 per person include dinner and raffle tickets for prizes donated by the local community.

For those who want to attend just the dinner, scheduled to begin at 5 p.m., tickets are $30.

The Dan Leach Memorial Fund was created in memory of Dan Leach, a Boulder City resident and Metropolitan Police Department officer who was killed in an auto accident while transporting prisoners. Funds raised are used to help children participate in youth-oriented activities that they otherwise would not be able to afford.

Runion excels at both sales and trails

Bret Runion has an uncanny knack of remembering a house he sold 30 years ago, who bought it, who sold it and in what year. And if you give him a few extra seconds, he could probably tell you the coloring of carpeting in each.

Grass removal, water waste prevention offer incentives

Walking my dogs around the neighborhood, early in the morning to beat the heat, I’ve noticed residents being mindful of water usage, taking steps to conserve in multiple ways. Several homes within a six-block radius have removed or are in the process of replacing their grass with desertscape (xeriscape) or artificial grass. Early morning watering schedules are being adhered to – before 9 a.m., for optimal lawn health and water conservation.

Damaged or disturbed asbestos in home presents health hazards

When my friend learned there was asbestos in the roof of a house he was looking to buy in Boulder City, it reminded me that the scarlet letter ‘A’ of building materials is something to be wary of when you own a home.
