Community Calendar July 16-22, 2015

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Veterans and family members can make an appointment to meet with a Veterans Service Officer to discuss their benefits.   Pre-scheduled appointments are suggested. Walk-in appointments are welcome, but can only be seen as time permits.  To schedule an advanced appointment, contact Josh at (775) 688-1653.

Those coming to meet with a Veteran’s Service Officer are advised to bring a copy of their DD-214 discharge document, current VA paperwork, medical information and banking account information.  If the claim involves dependents, bring birth certificates, current and prior marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and social security numbers.

Paul Benedict and Bunny Wiseman are together once again and will be appearing at the Mesquite Fine Arts Center on July 22 at 6 p.m., doors open at 5:30.

This dramatic and very talented duo will be reading short stories by two of America’s classic authors O. Henry and Dorothy Parker at the Mesquite Fine Arts Center.

This event is created by Benedict and hosted by Virgin Valley Artists Association.   Admission is free to the public.

These dramatic readings are geared toward the teen and adult audiences and are being presented as a part of VVAA’s mission to promote and encourage young adults to read and in support of the “Mesquite Reads” program.  For more information, please call 702-346-1338.

All the Mesquite folks who enjoy a little more action in your drama can certainly get your fix by attending the Jr. Golden Gloves Boxing Championship beginning Wednesday.

The Jr. Golden Gloves competition, hosted by Barry’s Boxing Center and sponsored by Mayweather Promotions, will take place in the CasaBlanca Event Tent.   Doors open at 5 p.m. nightly.

One, two, three or four day passes are available for this event and can be obtained by calling Star Tickets at: 800-585-3737 or Mesquite Gaming 877-438-2929.

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.
