This year’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt will be sponsored by the Las Vegas Summerlin Lions Club since the Mesquite Virgin Valley Lions Club disbanded in 2015. Bill and Judi DePew live in Mesquite and were members of that club. In July of 2015 they joined the LV Summerlin Lions Club and wanted to make sure the Easter Egg Hunt continued in Mesquite.
The event will be held March 26 at Marilyn Redd Park at 9:00 a.m. sharp. There will be special prizes for those that find the golden eggs. The Easter Bunny and Duck will be there for pictures with the kids.
The Mesquite Rotary is holding their annual Mudd Volleyball Tournament on March 26.  Go on out to the Eureka Saturday morning starting at 10 a.m. and watch your favorite teams get down and dirty.
Proceeds benefit the Beaver Dam School Grounds Beautification project.  For more information visit www.mesquitenvrotary.org.
The Friends of the NRA are holding a fundraiser at the Eureka Casino tonight at 5:30. Funds raised will benefit shooting sports in Nevada.  Membership in the NRA not required.
For more information on the Friends of the NRA call 702-345-4432.
Don’t miss the 2016 Mesquite Senior Games; it’s the best sports in Mesquite.  This week we have the Senior Games Basketball Skills Competition.  Head down to the Mesquite Recreation Center on Friday and Saturday to see just who has the skills to win the Senior Game Medals.
For more information on the 2016 Mesquite Senior Games visit www.mesquiteseniorgames.org or call 702-345-3347.
This is your last chance to see the Virgin Valley Theatre Group’s production “The Marvelous Wonderettes.”  You don’t want to miss this upbeat and fun musical comedy Starring Diana McKinney, Cheryl Maxfield, Nancy Hewett, and Felicia Smith with understudy Cindy Goode taking up one of the performances.
The Marvelous Wonderettes is at the Mesquite Community Theatre with show time at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce, Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, Danielle’s Chocolates and 2Da9z Clothing Boutique as well as the Mesquite Community Theatre Box Office or you can order online at www.vvtgnv.com.
Please note the change in my email address for submissions to the calendar; I am no longer using tphilswife@aol.com.  If you send info to that address, I can’t guarantee it’ll get into the calendar.
Let’s get all your events in print and online so everybody knows what’s happening in Mesquite. Just send an email with the who, what, where and when to terin.bbm@gmail.com. I am happy to help you spread the word.
