I am honored to serve as your Boomer Connection Social Club President for the year 2020 alongside our dedicated and hardworking Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, Events & Activities Coordinators, and many volunteers.
Working with them has been an amazing experience and going forward into this year, we will continue to work as a solid team to provide amusing, entertaining, and fun activities for all members to enjoy.
Let me remind you that most of our events are now back in “full swing.” Be sure to renew your membership so that you can continue to enjoy all the activities!
Be well and hope to see you at the next event ~ Sofia
Having a wonderful time!
Holly Jolly Gala!
The Holly Jolly Gala was so much fun — Albeit a time lag between performances, it was almost a perfect evening — dinner & desserts were delicious, and once the music got started, some great dancers got on the floor.
Vice President Roz Nakahama provided an update on our Events & Activities; while a few members volunteered to head up some of the 2020 events. Treasurer Sue Strom informed us that we’ve had a 42% increase in membership this year, making us one of the biggest clubs in Sun City Summerlin!

Therefore; the Boomer Connection Social Club 2020 Board of Directors is comprised of:
President: Sofia Castille
Vice President: Roz Nakahama
Secretary: Myrna Weidenfeld
Treasurer: Sue Strom
Busy Hands For Charity
This summer, a small group of our members made over 100 hand-crafted items and then donated these scarves, hats, blankets, and layettes to two wonderful organizations —
Project 150 which offers support and services to homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in the Las Vegas area so they can stay in school through graduation and learn the life skills necessary to be successful. Project 150 collects gently used clothes, toiletries, non perishable food, and school supplies year round. Throughout the year they hold special drives for high school sports equipment, formal wear, blankets and other seasonal items as needed.
The Assistance League of Las Vegas Layettes Program layettes (infant tee shirt, body suit, bib, booties and a cap), along hand-made blankets, sweaters and hats are provided to University Medical Center, Women’s Resource Medical Centers, First Choice Pregnancy Services, Southern Nevada Health District and Nellis Air Force Base new mothers.
I accompanied Angela Zecca, Hands for Charity event coordinator, on her delivery rounds in November. I saw how both organizations were so appreciative of Angela’s and her group’s efforts — every item would help keep a child warm this winter. If you’re interested in donating your time or materials, reach out to Angela at (805) 660-8740 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
