Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant held their annual fashion show fundraising event at Envy Nightclub on Saturday, March 5 where a packed house enjoyed entertainment, raffles and the wonderful fashions provided by many of the local boutiques and shops. Entertainment was provided by Claudia Nicholas former Ms. Senior Mesquite and ‘The Marvelous Wonderettes’ who open at the Mesquite Community Theatre on Friday, March 11.
