Community Calendar April 16 – 22, 2015

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s that time of year for the Mesquite Toes Dance Spectacular.  Vicki Eckman and the rest of the gang are thrilled to announce:  “We have 19 outstanding original new numbers with dazzling new costumes!  There will be new tap, jazz, clogging and musical theater numbers, as well as some of your favorite guests, including the Sun City Sounds.  As an added bonus, we have one of our musical theater numbers choreographed especially for the “Toes” by Las Vegas producer and dancer, Gino Venezia, who will also make a cameo performance!”

Don’t miss the Toes as they take the stage today, tomorrow and Saturday at the Mesquite Community Theatre.

Virgin Valley Artists Association member, Jean Battaglia, will teach a workshop in 3-D paper tole at the Mesquite Fine Arts Center classroom on Wednesday, April 22, from 9 a.m. – noon.   According to the VVAA, “This classic art form is the creation of dimensional pictures, made by layering many cut out sections of the same image on top of each other.  Constructing a piece of 3-D paper tole is an exacting skill that produces startlingly lovely artwork.”

The Fine Arts Center is also hosting the Colin Warren performance at the Gallery on Wednesday, April 22.

Warren is a favorite at the Gallery and has appeared there several times in the past.  Warren has spent much of his life in the Southwest. He has traveled the canyons and waters of the Colorado River, drawing inspiration from the moods and mystery of remote areas (Bio Colin Warren).

The American Red Cross encourages eligible blood donors to make a difference in the lives of patients this spring by giving blood.

Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.

You have the chance to make a difference by donating on Wednesday, April 22, 10 a.m. at the Mesquite Library, 121 W. First North Street.

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.

Go seniors, best to all who participate in the Mesquite Senior Games. May the best Geezers win!
