We apologize for any inconvenience, and are looking forward to bringing this to you in the Fall.

Governor Jim Gibbons will speak at the Boulder City Republican Women luncheon on Thursday, May 20, 11:30 a.m. at Railroad Pass Casino Banquet Room. Gibbons is a candidate for Nevada Governor for the 2010 election. The audience will be given an opportunity to ask questions of the Governor.

National Letter Carriers Annual Food Drive

This will take place this year on May 8, 2010 and Albertsons has partnered with Goodwill, United Way and the Girl Scouts to make this event an overwhelming success. All food donations will stay here in Boulder City and the recipient is Boulder City Emergency Aid. The girl scouts will be in front of Albertsons, but instead of selling cookies will be asking for donations for money to buy food with or non-perishable food donations.

All food is welcome, so look in your pantries and find that food you wanted to try but never ate. Foods from other retailers will be accepted and of course you can give the food to your letter carrier, but Albertsons will serve as a central location to drop off.

Boulder City Emergency Aid could use your support.

I am working with CETUSA a State Department approved organization that is looking for a family to house a foreign student for the academic year. These students have been carefully screened and it is a chance to show how friendly we Americans can be. My job will be to screen the applicants to see if the host family meets the standards required.
Life long friends have been made in this way. Students from Germany, France, Italy, Thailand and a total of 50 different countries want to come to America for an academic year at our local schools. Please have anyone interested contact me at 293-4147 and I can tell them more about it.
