August 4, 2011 

I want to make you aware of a special offer The Animal Foundation has made available during August 2011. Every dog or cat adopted this month will get free vaccines for life.

Plus, if you spay or neuter your current pet this month at the foundation's low-cost clinic, the animal will get free vaccines for life. The Animal Foundation operates Lied Animal Shelter and the low-cost clinic at 655 N. Mojave Road from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Visit online for more information. Call 384-3333, ext. 137, for a clinic appointment.

Please bring your children and join me for a back-to-school fair and community celebration on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Doolittle Community Center at 1950 N. J St. This is the most-anticipated Ward 5 event of the year! Many community partners and volunteers will join me to help prepare our youth for school and to make this event successful. Wristbands for children ages 5 to 12 will be distributed at 8:30 a.m., and school supplies will be handed out to them while supplies last, beginning at 9 a.m. Childhood immunization shots will be available, so BE SURE TO BRING YOUR CHILD'S HEALTH/IMMUNIZATION RECORDS in order to participate. Enjoy the face painters, vendors, music, popsicles and food while supplies last. There is still time to participate as a community vendor or volunteer! Contact my office at 229-5443 for more information.

I also want to remind you of the Senior Energy Assistance Expo being hosted by NV Energy on Saturday, Aug. 13. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cashman Center, 850 Las Vegas Blvd. North. Nonprofit and government agencies will be available to help seniors pay past-due bills, discuss weatherization options for homes, provide energy education and conservation and rebate information. Additional information on social services such as food bank, housing, medical and rental assistance will be available.

Please join the community on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 2 p.m. for a gathering at the West Las Vegas Arts Center, located at 947 W. Lake Mead Blvd. Everyone in the community is invited to join in this celebration of pioneers who blazed the trail for the West Las Vegas community boldly into the 21st century. Admission is free. Longtime residents will enjoy reminiscing, and newcomers will learn much about how our community developed. You'll have the opportunity to review the book, "Images of America West Las Vegas" by Patricia Hershwitzky and meet the author. Call 229-4800 for more information.
