They say that charity begins at home. Lake Havasu City residents have been an integral part of creating a strong sense of community since well before its incorporation in 1978. This Saturday, February 22, 2014, you can spend the entire day helping others in Lake Havasu simply by attending any or all of these fun events.
- What: Senior Center’s Pancake Breakfast
- Where: Lake Havasu Senior Center (450 S Acoma Blvd)
- When: 8am to 10:30am
- Cost: $5 per person
- Contact: Rena Arnold (928) 453-0715
For just $5 each, guests will get to enjoy pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, juice, coffee and more. Proceeds from the pancake breakfast will go towards buying more boxes for the Lake Havasu Fire Department Knox Box program. Each Knox Box allows a senior to keep a key to the home securely inside. These Knox Boxes can only be opened by a 911 responder. This helps the first responders get inside the home of a Lake Havasu senior citizen without delay, saving precious minutes in an emergency situation. The more Knox Boxes in the system, the more Havasu seniors the Fire Department can help.
- What: Heart Health Awareness Walk
- Where: Nautical Inn (1000 McCulloch Blvd)
- When: 9am to 3pm (registration starts at 8:30am)
- Cost: $15 by 2/21/14, $20 on 2/22/14
- Contact: Jeanie Morgan (928) 453-8190
The Havasu Community Health Foundation will be hosting an awareness walk at the Nautical Inn. Afterwards, participants are invited to the “A Fair of the Heart” health fair to learn more about the prevention, cause and treatment of health disease. Check in for the walk begins at 8:30am on the golf cart path. From 9am to 12pm, guests can get their blood pressure checked, have a lab screening and participate in a hands-on CPR demonstration.

Even though Lake Havasu City has continued to grow over the years, it has still managed to maintain its small town feel. One of the reasons is because we like helping others in Lake Havasu. Please consider attending one or more of the events mentioned above to help our little community continue to thrive. Thank you!
