[ARCHIVED] And the Award Goes to... Boulder City's Damboree!

Silver State Legacy Award Sheri Bonk-Julie Calloway-Roger Hall-Jennifer Spinkelink-Cheree Brennan

BOULDER CITY - During the statewide convention of the Nevada Recreation and Parks Society on October 19, 2021, Parks and Recreation Director Roger Hall and his staff were recognized with the “Silver State Legacy Program” Award! This prestigious honor goes to programs and events: “which have endured the test of time and have become iconic to those who have attended and participated in these programs. Designation as a Silver State Legacy Program is the highest accolade the Nevada Recreation and Park Society can bestow upon a program. These programs and events play an important role in the development of and relationships within a community. These programs promote cooperation, social interaction, education, the arts, and more.

Jennifer Spinkelink sent in the application for consideration based on the partnership between local volunteers from the Damboree Committee, Boulder City Parks and Recreation staff, and the City. “We are honored to accept this award, which is truly a team effort,” said Roger Hall, Boulder City Parks and Recreation Director.  “So much of the success we have as a community comes from amazing partnerships and collaboration with organizations and volunteers. The Damboree Committee is dedicated to honoring the history of Boulder City and our great nation every year, teaming up with City staff to host 15,000-20,000 people for an amazing parade and fantastic fireworks show.”

Damboree started in 1949 and was originally hosted by the American Legion Post 31. The Jaycees and Elks also hosted the event in the past.  The Damboree Committee formed in 1995 and has teamed up with the City for events since then.
