Sunrise Rotary wishes to thank the parents, guardians and families of the 130-plus graduating seniors of the Boulder City High School class of 2013 for allowing us to entertain and care for your young folks at the all-night drug- and alcohol-free graduation party following the commencement exercise. The entire group, including the 25 Sunrise chaperones, enjoyed the venues and all safely arrived back at the high school around 6 a.m. June 6. Ask a graduate about his or her experience. We thank the entire community for supporting our annual WurstFest where proceeds fund the all-night grad party as well as helping to fund more than 30 other worthy community wide causes. We hope to see you in the park the last Saturday of September.
Every week when I read in the Boulder City Review the column by Officer Jeff Grasso it makes me smile. He has such a neat sense of humor that comes out in his writings, and it is one of the first things I head for in the paper after the Police Blotter, which also makes me smile.
I have been maintaining the Hotel Plaza clock and chime system for the Chamber of Commerce for several years. I faithfully change it from daylight saving time to standard, and back again every year.
Last week our son Alexander graduated from UNLV with a degree in physics. A few days before that, he had his one-year checkup and was told that he was still cancer free. Neither would have happened without the outpouring of support from Boulder City that occurred when he got his diagnosis. Alexander is a private person, but when we told our friends, the news seemed to reach into the very corners of our community.
