Elks to dish up free Thanksgiving meal

For those who don’t have the ability to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal, or have a place to go, members of Boulder City Elks, Lodge 1682, are inviting them to sit at their table.

For at least 25 years, the Elks lodge has been serving a free holiday meal to those in need or to those who would like to celebrate with fellow members of the community.

According to Helen Breeden, secretary/treasurer for the lodge, there will be two seatings: one at 11 a.m. and another at 2 p.m. on Nov. 25. An all-you-can-eat turkey dinner, complete with all the trimmings, will be served buffet style.

There is no cost to attend, but donations are welcome, Breeden said.

Members of the lodge donate turkeys and others in the community, including Albertsons, donate the side dishes and desserts. Additionally, the lodge raises funds to round out the meal.

Elks also prepare and serve the meal.

Breeden said they expect to serve between 200 and 300 people this year.

Reservations are not necessary.

The lodge is at 1217 Boulder City Parkway.

Artists puts local touch on holiday ornaments

A local resident used some unexpected down time during the pandemic to learn a new hobby and turn it into a side business creating holiday ornaments unique to Boulder City.

Approved plants, art can replace nonfunctional grass

Q. I live in an HOA (homeowners association) property. I consider the rear yard next to my townhome contains “nonfunctional grass” as no one walks on or uses it. Where can I get a list of low-water-use plants and trees? I am sure with irrigation mandates we will do some conversions.

Association extends ‘Goodwill’ to aid military

When most people hear the name Goodwill, they tend to think of thrift stores, which are in Southern Nevada and across the nation. As an avid thrift store consumer, I can highly recommend shopping in those outlets. But in addition to selling donated items and helping the general public gain employment, Goodwill also provides veterans’ assistance.

Santa visits highlight holiday activities

If the holiday season seems a little brighter in Boulder City this season, it’s probably from the smiles on locals’ faces as traditional events return.

Holiday gift-giving program begins Monday

Angels will soon be flocking to the Boulder Dam Credit Union to pick up tags for Emergency Aid of Boulder City’s annual Angel Tree. The event provides holiday gifts to local children and senior citizens in need.
