Seen on Scene: At Rotary Club of Boulder City’s 80th Anniversary Celebration

The Rotary Club of Boulder City celebrated its 80th anniversary with a dinner Feb. 28 inside DeSimone’s Steakhouse at Railroad Pass.

The club, chartered Feb. 25, 1937, was the first service organization in Boulder City, according to a history presented by President Larry Archuleta during the celebration.

He also spoke about the various projects done by the club each year and how funds raised by members at events such as the Best Dam Barbecue Challenge and Fourth of July pancake breakfast go back into the community.

During the celebration, they also welcomed Christine Romero, the newest member of its Satellite Club, and made Rick Hill, husband of the late Christy Springgate-Hill, an honorary member. Springgate-Hill, who lost her battle with cancer in October, was a past president of the club and often “volunteered” her husband to help with its many projects.

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.
