You can meet with City Manager, Andy Barton at noon tomorrow and find out all about what’s happening with the City of Mesquite.

This forum is your chance to ask questions, offer your suggestions or just listen and learn. The Community Forum will take place at Fire Station #3 from noon to 1 p.m.

Yes, it is that time already…let’s Jam in Beaver Dam this weekend with the three day line-up of bands, view the entire weekend line-up at www.beaverdamjam.com.

The Beaver Dam Jam began as Bill Evans’ life-long dream to create interest in the local music scene.

Evans said he just wanted to have some fun and since the jam’s inception in 2007, he’s pleased to see that it has grown bigger every year.

There is a new exercise class in town and it’s called Quake-Barre.

Barre is a ballet inspired, group exercise class which incorporates both Pilates and Yoga and the use of the ballet barre.

The Barre workout doesn’t require jumping, lifting heavy weights or sweating puddles.  It is very challenging by involving the use of core muscles but it is soft in it’s approach.

Class participants should have the ability to move from a sitting position to a standing position without much difficulty.  Workouts are done barefoot or in yoga socks. Please bring plenty of water.

Everyone is welcome to try this class for free as long as they bring a friend. Classes are normally $5 for drop-ins or coupon books, for discounted rates, are available through the Mesquite Recreation Center.

Once the weekend winds down and you find yourself bored on a Monday evening…don’t panic….join the Virgin Valley Theatre Group in their “Fly Willie” workshops.

Here’s your chance to work on you performance skills; acting.  Dancing and show dynamics are just a few of the skills we will be working on in this summer-long workshop.

Fly Willie is an original script and the work of veteran showman Dan Nielsen who has entertained audiences in every genre from stage to movies.

Nielsen won awards in Branson, MO for his direction and choreography of the show Country Tonight.  Come on out and work with this seasoned professional and the VVTG as we fly with Willie and the rest of the characters, 45 in all, every Monday from 6-9 p.m. @150 N. Yucca St., #15.

Have a safe and fun week, stay cool and remember to check the online calendar with a full list of weekly recurring activities to keep you fit, informed and entertained at www.mesaquitelocalnews.com.

 

Remember to send all your meeting, events or entertainment information to tphilswife@aol.com; I’ll help you spread the word.
