You won’t want to miss attending the beautiful 3D artist’s reception at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery.  The Public is invited to meet the Virgin Valley Artists, enjoy the presentation of awards and even buy the amazing art work displayed.

The reception is being held this afternoon from 4-6 p.m. at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, 15 West Mesquite Blvd.

Mesquite Off-Road Weekend is being held at the Eureka Resorts Casino all weekend long.  Join the excitement of the EnduroCross and freestyle MotoCross racers in addition to the races for all levels of racers from kids to experts.

The Mesquite Off-Road Festival has something for everyone from VIP meet and greets to venders and entertainment.   Join the fun at the Eureka all weekend long from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information contact 801-707-5967.

One sure fire way to put a spark in your giddy-up this weekend is to join the Cowboy Poets as they sit around the campfire and share their tales of the trails at the Mesquite Western Roundup sponsored by the Mesquite Arts Council.

There’s no doubt that Hap Stuart, Jim Dunham, Ken Marshall, Lee Kimberlin, Marc Bradshaw, Marleen Bussma, Mike Prince and Mesquite’s own Russ Westwood will keep you in stitches as they share poems and stories of their life as a cowboy or cowgirl.

Let ‘em tickle your fancy this weekend at the Mesquite Community Theatre, 150 North Yucca Street.  Tickets are $10 and are available at Danielle’s Chocolates, Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, Mesquite Chamber of Commerce, Have Boutique Will Travel and the Mesquite Community Theatre Box Office.

Monday, at the Mesquite Senior Center, the Reilly Group will be conducting a public listening session.  The session is meant to give interested parties an opportunity to provide constructive feedback about the services provided by the Mesquite Athletic and Leisure Services Department (MALSD).

Whether you enjoy the services of the MALSD in youth sports programs or by utilizing the recreation center and swimming pool the impact of the MALSD is everywhere in the Mesquite community.  City Manager Andy Barton would love to hear what they are doing right as well as how they can improve their services to the community members.

According to the press release issued by MALSD, “If you are unable to attend the meeting, you are welcome to provide feedback by contacting Thom Reilly with The Reilly Group via email at thom@thereillygroup.org or via phone at (702) 809-1092.”

Whatever activity they you are looking for, you can always find what’s happening right here in the community calendar every Thursday in print or everyday online at www.mesquitelocalnews.com/category/calendar.

If you want them to find you, you know what to do, send all your events to tphilswife@aol.com, please put “community calendar” in the subject line or your submission may get lost in cyber space.

I look forward to spreading the word about all the great community events you have coming our way.
