Contestants in the 2019 Ms. Senior Mesquite pageant were introduced to the public Saturday, Jan. 26 during their annual Bingo Bash fundraiser at the Elks Club.

The 2019 Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant Contestants are perfect examples of the outstanding and varied talent that comprises the citizenry of Mesquite. They have made contributions to the communities from which they lived prior and continue that tradition here. As contestants, which they’ll agree is not a “cakewalk”, they have taken on the challenges to be bold, courageous, adventurous, and inspiring in yet another chapter of their lives.

Each year the Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant contestants sell advertising for their program as part of their contestant responsibilities. The money collected from the sale of the ads goes to charity; specifically, the non-profit organizations that thrive in Mesquite. Be on the lookout for the ladies to come knocking on your door for a good cause.

The Pageant takes place Saturday, April 27 at 4:00 pm at the Mesquite Community Theatre.
