Community Calendar Dec. 21-26, 2017

Your business can save energy with a USDA Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) Grant. Nevada Industry Excellence is partnering with USDA to offer a presentation on how your business can take advantage of USDA’s REAP Renewable Energy Systems & Energy Efficiency Improvement Grants.

REAP provides grant funding to rural small businesses and agricultural producers.

Funds may be used for the purchase, installation and construction of energy efficiency improvements and/or renewable energy systems.

Get started with an energy assessment to identify energy improvements customized for your operation by attending the seminar at the Rising Star Sports Ranch on Dec. 21 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

You can register for the event by contacting NevadaIE.com/events or calling 1-800-637-4634.

A complimentary lunch will be served during the event.

Don’t forget to stop by the Mesquite Fine Arts Center’s Holiday Boutique for that last minute, one-of-a- kind gift; all items are handmade by local artists.

The MFAC is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The boutique will be open until Dec. 30.

While you’re shopping at the gallery don’t forget to look around at all the small art on display during the National Small Works Exhibition and Competition, sponsored by Deep Roots Harvest, which will also be on display now through Dec. 30.

Is your New Year Resolution going to be learning something new? The Mesquite Fine Arts Center also offers a variety of art classes in any medium you can imagine. Contact the gallery for more information.

Bunny Wiseman and Jan Hansen teach ‘Drop-In’ oil and acrylics painting classes Tuesday mornings from 9am to 12 noon. Class fee is $10.00. All supplies provided for each student’s first class. Instructor will discuss supplies necessary for subsequent classes.

Char Lang has combined her Intermediate and Beginning Watercolor classes.  Wednesdays from 9am to 2:30pm, both classes will concentrate on watercolor techniques, design & composition and color theory.   Lang will do an intermediate demonstration in the morning, and a beginners’ demonstration in the early afternoon.   Classes are $10 per class using your own supplies, and $15 per class using instructor provided supplies.

The Mesquite Library has some events centered around the children and Christmas from story time to Christmas movies on Saturday. Be sure to take the kids for some fun holiday experiences.

Remember to send all of your New Year’s Eve events to terin.bbm@gmail.com so the rest of Mesquite can join your party and help you ring in 2018. Please be sure to put “community calendar” in the subject line.
