Boulder City Chamber Holiday Events
In its tradition of honoring the past, the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce did just that on September 30th. After 8 1/2 years, assisting 4 Executive Directors and 1 CEO, Marilyn Neidlinger retired. Gathering around Marilyn on her last day were the City Council members, Chamber Board of Directors, Chamber Ambassadors, and Marilyn’s "volunteers." Her send off was bittersweet ~ a few tears shed during the festivities. Knowing that Marilyn is retiring to a part time job across the street eased our goodbye.

Looking to the future, we have Heather Frost stepping into Marilyn’s shoes. For the past month Heather has been working part time. Heather brings her enthusiasm and willingness to learn to the Chamber office. Truly the "new kid on the block" Heather came over the Pass from Henderson last December. Please stop by the office to say hello and get to know Heather better.

The Chamber has quite a celebration planned for this Holiday Season. The kick-off begins as usual on the first weekend of December with the annual Community Lighting and Tree Lighting on December 2, 2005. Join Jingle Cat as she parades down Nevada Highway into the Historic District lighting the local businesses for the season. She’ll then dance around the Community Christmas Tree and with a wave of her magic wand, light the night and begin the spirit of giving.

The following day, December 3rd, is Santa’s Picture Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Bicenten-nial Park, and Santa’s Electrical Night Parade at 4:30 p.m.

Immediately following the electrical parade, Lake Mead will be lit with beautiful boats for the Parade of Lights.

Then mark your calendars for December 18, 2005 for Los Posadas and Luminaria in Bicentennial Park at 6 p.m. With all the particpation from our local churches and other community organizations, this event sets the tone for the special reasons we each celebrate at this time of year.

The Chamber is again involved in the planning and coordinating of the famous First Night Boulder City. The First Night Committee meets every other week to organize all the many events that take place on New Year’s Eve in "Celebration of the Arts".

Boulder City culture shines during this special event that promotes safe, family-friendly fun on a night that we welcome in the new. Great local entertainers, wonderful restaurants, fun booths, and this year... a carnival in the down town area. The Committee has worked very hard to provide you with enthusiastic entertainers and a grand finale you won’t want to miss. So plan to buy your collectible First Night Boulder City 2006 button and get into all the many venues in the Historic District that will keep you hoppin’ all night. Buttons go on sale December 1, 2005 along with family pack tickets for the Carnival. You can purchase buttons at ACE Hardware, the Boulder City Art Guild, and the Chamber of Commerce after December 1st.

First Night is always looking for great volunteers to help the night of the event. This year, there will be a repeat session of all entertainment. So if you would like to help out, we’ll make sure you get to see the rest of the shows. We are also still taking applications for venue entertainment and street entertainers. If you have a talent you would like to share with your community, please let us know. The more, the merrier!
