The Column - December 12, 2019

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

During just the last week, holiday celebrations around town have included the Luminaria, the Christmas tree lighting, and Santa’s Electric Night Parade, just to name a few.  If you attended one or all these annual events, you were treated to a very special part of our city.  The music at Luminaria is always incredible.  The children’s excitement at the tree lighting is a joy to see.  And, the entries in the parade are awesome to behold.  Attendance at these events is always strong and once again shows how well our community comes together to celebrate.

What many do not realize is these annual events, in addition to Spring Jamboree, are sponsored and coordinated by our Chamber of Commerce. 

It is a hard-enough job balancing the needs and desires of all the various business interests around town, but the Chamber Board of Directors and Jill Lagan not only successfully manage these relationships, but also ensure that all of the community activities above come off without a hitch.

Thank you to the Chamber for all they do for the Boulder City community!

SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES

All sizes are available (although somewhat limited in the largest size).  If you are in need of a safe and secure space to store critical documents, collectibles, or any other personal items that require the ultimate in security, come see us.  The charge is minimal, and the security is the best.

SHOPPING WORDS OF WISDOM

The following on-line shopping advice comes from our ACH partner WesPay’s newsletter:

  • Secure your mobile device and computer.  Be sure to keep the operating systems and security software current and updated.
  • Use passwords.  It’s one of the simplest and most important steps.
  • Do not use public computers or public wireless for your online shopping.
  • Know your online shopping merchants.  Limit your shopping to merchants you know and trust.
  • Look for “https” when making an online purchase.  The “s” stands for secure.
  • Do not respond to pop-ups.
  • Do not click on links or open attachments in emails from financial institutions/vendors.
  • Do not auto-save your personal information.
  • Use common sense to avoid scams.  Don’t ever give your financial information or personal information via e-mail or text.
  • Review privacy policies.  Make sure you know what they can do with your information.

Very good tips to help protect your good cheer during the holidays! 

DON’T FALL FOR IT!

The e-mail comes from a bank that you don’t recognize (or maybe you do).  It goes on to say, “Your sign in details have been suspended.  Please proceed to (Bank Name) to confirm your details and register your account to our new security module.”

Don’t do it!  If you haven’t initiated the contact, then it is likely fraud.  Be smart and don’t click!

REGARDLESS OF THE HOLIDAY

Merry Christmas for me, Happy Hanukkah for others, Happy Kwanzaa for others, a peaceful New Year for all!  Regardless of your religious affiliation or tradition, be sure to drive down Nevada Way at night-time and catch the spirit.  Between the improvements made to our entry way and the decorations made by our City, I would challenge that there are few towns any more beautiful than Boulder City this time of year.

And while you’re at it, stop in and visit the shops and restaurants.  A healthy, local economy is good for all of us.

WORDS OF WISDOM

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.

- Albert Einstein
