Holiday Traditions

Holiday traditions come in a variety of forms at the Recreation Department. These traditions enhance hundreds of families holiday season. I’d like to share with you some of these traditions.

Preschool age children in the Tiny Tot program look forward to singing songs for their parents, at their annual party and visit from Santa Claus.

The Safekey program kicks into gear with holiday crafts for participants to take home to use as decorations in their home.

Children in the Fine Arts program at the Art Center started their holiday tradition in September by making holiday cards that are available at the Credit Union and the 900 Arizona Street Recreation Center.

The Pool hosts an annual Holiday Pot Luck Luncheon. This tradition was started in 1990 by former swim instructor/coordinator Stanna Hurlburt. Administrative Clerk Bobbe Wilson who has not missed a single luncheon states, “Over the years I have seen much laughter and tears of joy.”

At the Youth Center our kids look forward to an annual Mt. Charleston Trip. For some, it is the only opportunity they will have to play in the snow. Cross your fingers that the mountain has snow on December 22nd for this trip. This group also partakes in an evening viewing of decorations throughout town, and returns to the Youth Center for hot chocolate.

The Cheerleading class represents the Recreation Department in Santa’s Electric Night Parade. The girls are diligent in their preparation for this opportunity to perform for Boulder City residents, and it’s always fun to see what kind of creative outfit they come up with.
