Community Calendar Oct. 23 – 29, 2014

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Virgin Valley Artists Association is hosting a reception for the artist of the month, Joyce Burke and other artists who joined the “Dusty Trails” exhibition.  The reception begins at 4 p.m. today and is free to the public.

You won’t want to miss the opportunity to see the works of our very talented local artists.  All art in the exhibition is for sale.

Do you miss the good old days when you and your friends could get together and just jam to some really good tunes?  Join the Guns & Guitars music jam tonight and you can relive those glory days again.

You don’t have to be the greatest musician in the world, you just have to have a love for music.  Everyone is welcome to join the party.  Guns & Guitars tonight, 6 p.m.; be there or be sorry you missed all the fun.

Hands down the best choice for your weekend enjoyment is Nana’s Naughty Knickers which is playing at the Mesquite Community Theatre on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and on Sunday at 2 p.m. and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it.

That’s right, you’ve got three times the opportunity to see this wonderfully fun and entertaining show produced by the Virgin Valley Theatre Group.

The show is silly and light hearted with just the right amount of saucy. Join the cast and crew as they have just as much fun putting on this show for you as you’re going to have watching it.

All Mesquite citizens of age to vote have the opportunity to cast yours early.   Polls will be open Tuesday and Wednesday at the Deuce #2 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

We print as much of the calendar in the paper as space allows but you can always check the complete calendar with a full list of weekly recurring activities which will help keep you fit, informed and entertained at www.mesquitelocalnews.com.

Remember to send all your meeting, events or entertainment information to tphilswife@aol.com; please put “Community Calendar” in the subject line or your submission may get overlooked.   I’ll be happy to help you spread the word.
