Thanksgiving is a time for people to gather in unity, count blessings, and express gratitude for health and family.  In this spirit, The City of Mesquite extends an invitation to all the residents of Mesquite, Bunkerville and the surrounding areas to come share a complementary Thanksgiving meal on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from noon to 6 p.m.

Hosted by the Mesquite Senior Center, located at 102 W. Old Mill Rd., this meal is an opportunity to not only enjoy turkey, mashed potatoes and all of the trimmings, but to also enjoy friends, neighbors, family and other people in the community.  You never know, you might meet a new friend!

This free holiday meal is made possible by the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals in our community through the donation of time and treasure.

In addition, there are age-appropriate volunteer opportunities for individuals and whole families available.  Volunteer time slots are in one-hour blocks.  Financial contributions in any amount would be greatly appreciated too. Those interested in donating or volunteering can contact Krissy Thornton for details at 702-346-5290 ext. 4102 or via email at

For more information about this event or any other program, please contact Griseyda Belalcazar, Senior Services Supervisor, at 346-5290 ext. 4006 or via email at
