Community Calendar Nov. 20 – 26, 2014

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ladies who have reached the age of elegance, 60 +, who would like to compete for the chance to represent Mesquite in the Ms. Senior Nevada Pageant must first become Ms. Senior Mesquite.

How do you become Ms. Senior Mesquite?  You must attend an open call to start and there just happens to be one scheduled today from 1-3 p.m. in the Mesquite Fine Art Gallery Classroom.

Pageant coordinators along with former Queens will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, tell you all about how things happened when they competed and sign you up for the first step toward becoming Ms. Senior Nevada.

Help save lives by donating blood.  The Red Cross Blood Mobile will be at Bowler Elementary School today from 2-6 p.m.

Join the Mesquite Arts Council while they Dash through the Snow right here in Mesquite at the Festival of Trees which is being held at the CasaBlanca Event Tent.

The Festival runs through Saturday and there is plenty to see and do including a party with Olaf for the children on Saturday at noon.  Cost of the party is $10 per child.

If you have the time please help Highland Manor spread some Christmas joy to the residents and family members as you Deck the Halls of the Manor by adopting a door and decorating it.

Do what you will with the doors; wrap it, put bows on it, light it up… get creative!

There is a suggested donation of $1.00 for an entrance fee which will go towards the “Adopt a Door” awards ceremony on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.

Awards will be presented for Best Decorated Door, Most Creative Door, Funniest Door, Most Likes on Facebook, and more.

Doors can be decorated anytime between now and December 5th Monday thru Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

To “Adopt a Door” please call 702-346-7666 to sign up and ask any additional questions regarding specific contest rules.  Doors are limited so sign up today and join in the fun!

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.
