Easter sunrise service planned

The sun sparkling as it rises over Lake Mead will provide the backdrop for the 30th annual Easter sunrise service presented by the Boulder City Interfaith Lay Council. It will begin at 6 a.m. Sunday at Hemenway Valley Park.

The service is nondenominational and conducted by area residents. It will include scripture readings, hymns, special music and a meditation.

Kathy Whitman, a member of the lay council, said she expects between 300 and 400 people to attend the service, including those from the Las Vegas area. All are welcome to attend.

Music for the service will include bagpipes played by Wes Hallom, Devin Streater on piano and Tom Burke on harmonica.

Fran Haraway will present a special reading and meditation she wrote specifically for the service, while Linda Lintner, Linda Nations and Burke will serve as song leaders.

Whitman said the service usually lasts less than an hour.

There is no cost to attend, but a freewill offering is taken. Proceeds will be donated to Emergency Aid of Boulder City and Lend A Hand.

Those attending are encouraged to dress warmly and bring their own chair.

Complimentary coffee, hot chocolate and doughnuts will be provided by Winchell’s Donuts of Boulder City.

Hemenway Valley Park is at 401 Ville Drive.
