Community Calendar March 8-14, 2018

Jean Watkins is looking for volunteers who want to help build a celebration for the 100 Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote. A kick-off meeting is scheduled for this evening at 5 p.m. The meeting will be held at Mesquite’s new Women’s History and Cultural Center located at 150 N. Yucca St. #23.

The Anniversary is in 2020 but Watkins knows that a celebration of this caliber needs good people and time to plan. If this is something you are passionate about, and you think you might want to help plan the celebration, attend the meeting this evening to learn more.

The Mesquite Department of Athletics and Leisure Services along with the Elementary Schools Parent/Teacher Organization are hosting the Second Annual Desert Color Dash.

This event will be held on Saturday, March 10, from 7:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the Hafen Park. The event will be run along the trails system.
