Community Calendar May 24-30, 2017

This week, more than 600 golfers will descend on Mesquite, Nevada for the second largest handicapped amateur tournament in the nation, Mesquite Amateur. Every year since 2002, Mesquite Gaming , owner of the Casablanca Resort and Virgin River Hotel, hosts the Mesquite Amateur, which serves as a summer getaway for hundreds of amateur golfers, not only around the United States, but the world. The Sixteenth Annual Mesquite Amateur, a five-day 54-hole, net, stroke play tournament, takes place from May 28 through June 1.

Thirty-eight U.S. states are represented in this year’s tournament, and there are 12 foreign competitors traveling from as far as Thailand. The tournament continues to attract a wide range of players, from the oldest male participant at 90 years old, to the 130 female participants, including last year’s champion Gigi Higgins of Cape Coral, Fla.

Community involvement is essential each year for the Mesquite Amateur, and this year more than 60 local Mesquite volunteers will be assisting with tournament. Their work and dedication during the week of this tournament help create an amazing experience for all participants.

The CasaBlanca is presenting some compelling entertainment this weekend in the Showroom.

Mark Preston, former member of the Lettermen will be appearing live on Friday and on Saturday you can kick back with some good Southern Rock when Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers pay tribute to the music of ZZ Top.

You must be 21 or over to attend either concert. Tickets prices start at $15, with VIP seating available, and can be purchased online at: http://www.startickets.com/events/item/mark-preston.

Memorial Day Services will be held Monday, May 28th, 7:45 a.m. at Veterans Park.

Memorial Day was created to honor those who paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom. There will be no political advertising or promoting allowed.
