Easter sunrise service planned

Boulder City residents can start their Easter celebration on Sunday morning before the sun comes up at the annual Easter Sunrise celebration at Hemenway Valley Park.

The Boulder City Interfaith Lay Council sponsors the yearly service, which begins at 6:15 a.m. This free service is open to all and will feature prayer, scripture readings and meditation.

Tom Burke will open the service with the welcome and opening prayer. Fran Haraway will present a meditation she wrote called “Mary’s Turn.” There will also be several scripture readings done by Jill Rowland-Lagan, Sharon Parkis and Mike Casey. Linda Nations will give the closing prayer. Also participating in the service are Linda Lintner and Bryan Haraway.

“It’s beautiful because the sun is coming up over the lake and over the hill,” said Kathy Whitman, an organizer of the event. “It’s really glorious when it comes up.”

Whitman said the council is expecting 400 people to attend. Those who want to come should bring chairs, blankets and a warm coat. There will also be free donuts, donated by Albertsons, and coffee.

There will be an offering taken at the service, which will be split between Emergency Aid of Boulder City and Lend A Hand of Boulder City after expenses.

Hemenway Valley Park is at 401 Ville Drive.

Traditional soup comforting year-round

Ah, matzo ball soup. The very words conjure soothing comfort to the soul. Rich savory chicken broth with tender pieces of chicken and pillowy, cloud-like dumplings made from matzo. Anytime I see it on the menu at a deli I order it, especially if I’m in need of revitalization. They don’t call it Jewish penicillin for nothing.

Nevada citizen a Revolutionary descendant

The National Sons of the American Revolution was formed in 1876 by John Austin Stevens, who envisioned a hereditary social group. In 1889, William Osborn McDowell formed a similar group and decided to expand it to be a mass movement of descendants of Revolutionary patriots as opposed to a more closed social club that Stevens had formed. Additionally, McDowell was instrumental in forming the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution in 1890. A chapter of that organization thrives in Nevada.
