Community Calendar Jan. 7-13, 2016

Now that the holidays are over you can all take a short breath before we begin a full year of activities.
Things are a bit slow in the community this week but next week promises a lot of activity.

I’ve posted some new recreation center classes that are beginning this month and there are more to come.  Be sure to check out our website for a full schedule of Recreation Center classes to keep you fit and active in 2016.

Mesquite Recreation Center is also currently taking registration for upcoming Youth Spring Flag Football.  The registration deadline is Jan. 16.

Do you love playing softball but think you’re too old for that anymore?  Why not join the Geezers Softball League?  Games are held each Monday and Wednesday at 10 and 11:30 a.m.  You’re never too old to be a Geezer, you can only be too young; Geezer teams are for players 50+. Join now and don’t miss out on anymore of the fun.

Send all of your activities to terin.bbm@gmail.com and, together, we’ll keep the public informed about what you’ve got going on in 2016.

Don’t forget to check out www.mesquitelocalnews.com for a full list of calendar items. From arts to volunteer work, you can always find something to do in the MLN community calendar.
