About Town

Day trips can be diversions from your life’s routine by giving back to our hometown. Be a Town Hero! Volunteer your time, a wonderful gift gratefully accepted.

For example the City of Boulder City has a laundry list of opportunities, with our beautiful new Animal Shelter at the top. Other departments from BCTV to the Municipal Court, Parks and Recreation, Police Department, Public Information Office and Public Works need your help! More City volunteer opportunities include various Advisory Boards and Commissions. Visit or call the City Clerk’s office, 293-9208.

Art in the Park returns next month, and they ALWAYS need help. Until someone thinks up another job, there are 22 volunteer jobs needing dozens of volunteers. For a limited time, you could be a tax collector, man the information booth during the show, help with laying out the artist’s spaces in the park, mix and mingle with the artists at registration, sell raffle tickets, collect raffle prizes and even booth sit so artists who are by themselves get a break. Proceeds from this annual event go to our community owned hospital! Visit, or call the Foundation Coordinator’s office, 293-4111 Ext. 725.

So helping out the City, or the Hospital isn’t for you? Check with the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce,, or call 293-2034. Their downtown office is a great place to welcome visitors. Just across the street, the Boulder Dam Hotel houses our BC Museum and Historical Association. Talk to Marie Sullivan in the gift shop about sharing your time with them,, or 294-1988. Don’t forget our Library, 293-1281 and the Boys and Girls Club, 293-2579.

NEAT NEVADA NOTES: Moapa Valley at the north edge of Lake Mead’s Overton Arm includes the towns of Overton, Logandale and Moapa as well as the Moapa National Wildlife Refuge. Anasazis first settled in the Valley about 350 BC. The Muddy River, only about 32 miles long and once called the Moapa River, runs through the Valley, emptying into Lake Mead. Moapa is Paiute for muddy.
