Saturday’s scavenger hunt benefits cancer society

Boulder City residents are invited to help paint the town purple in support of this month’s Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

A scavenger hunt has been incorporated into the event and will be held Saturday. Participating teams will be asked to take photos of themselves tying purple ribbons around town as they gather items for the scavenger hunt, said Myra Davis, chairman of this year’s Relay.

This year’s Relay for Life is being dedicated to longtime Boulder City volunteer Christy Springgate-Hill, who is battling liver cancer, as well as other locals who are fighting cancer, Davis said.

Springgate-Hill is a past president of the Rotary Club of Boulder City and Friends of the Arts. Additionally, she is active with the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce and helps with the Spring Jamboree. For the past four years, she has served as chairman of the Rotary’s Best Dam Barbecue Challenge.

The scavenger hunt begins at 11 a.m. at Jack’s Place, 544 Nevada Way. An assortment of prizes, including helicopter rides and zipline adventures, will be awarded.

A $10 donation is being asked to participate in the event and teams must have at least two people on them.

All proceeds raised by Relay for Life benefit the American Cancer Society to provide support services for cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers, Davis said.

The Relay for Life is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. April 29-30 at Boulder City High School.

Additional information about the scavenger hunt or relay can be obtained by calling Davis at 702-371-3037 or emailing her at mjdfly@cox.net.

Shortage at Lake Mead demands water saving obligation

Water is life — a well-known phrase most Americans take for granted. But for us folks living in the desert, we’re more sensitive to what life (or lack thereof) could look like without water. Visual cues like cracks in the desert floor, scorched grass and shrubbery and, most of all, the “bathtub ring” around Lake Mead are all constant reminders of drought.
