Community Calendar Nov. 13 – 19, 2014

With Veteran’s Day coming to a close, take a minute or an hour to visit the various places around Mesquite where they honor our Veterans.

Take some time to explore the Mesquite Veterans Center, they have a thrift store to raise money for veterans in need and you may find a treasure or two of your own.  The Veteran’s Center also has a plethora of assistance programs for veterans including providing rides to the VA Hospital in Vegas.

You can stop in at the Heritage Museum and see how many of our founding fathers proudly fought for the freedom our country enjoys

You definitely won’t want to miss the impressive display of 1000 flags over Mesquite at the Recreation Center, 100 W. Old Mill Road; courtesy of the Mesquite Exchange Club.

Closing ceremonies for 1000 Flags over Mesquite is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday at the Recreation Center Field.

Are you bored?  Maybe you’d like to learn more about blogging, computers in general or perhaps you’d like to improve your Microsoft Office skills.  Check out the Mesquite Library Programs and you can do all that and then some.

You can wake up your Christmas Spirit by attending the Festival of Trees sponsored by the Mesquite Arts Council.

The festival goes until the 19th and there will be plenty of entertainment provided by local talent every day of the festival, contact the Mesquite Arts Council for a full schedule of entertainment and activities.

All proceeds go the Virgin Valley Food Bank, admission is $3 per person or $2 + 2 cans of food for the food bank.

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.
