Terri Rylander, with the help of so many helpful volunteers, put on a spectacular contest.

 “This is the first year we held a Long Drive event as part of the Mesquite Senior Games. Although it was a lot of work to get it set up, I had terrific help and the event went off without a hitch. We had very positive feedback from the participants and see the event continuing into the future as part of the Senior Games,” said Rylander.
