It’s that time of year Mesquite; time to get down and dirty with Mesquite Rotary’s Sixth Annual Mudd Volleyball and it’s all for a good cause.

The cause is the Mesquite Rotary’s fundraiser for the Beaver Dam Jr./Sr. High School’s Interact Club’s Beautification project.

The concept for the beautification project originally came from the students about six and a half years ago when Linda Gault, active Rotary member and, at the time, Mesquite Secretary, began the Interact Club in the Beaver Dam High School.

As the project moves onto its second phase, funds are needed to make it happen and Rotary members have found that people love to get muddy, especially on a hot and sunny day in Mesquite.

If you want that chance, now is the time to get a team together and sign up for the event which is scheduled to take place on May 11 in the pits behind the Eureka. Check in will begin at 9 a.m. on that day and the first teams can start getting muddy at 10.

It seems that in the past six years Mesquite Fire and Rescue and the Mesquite Police Department can’t decide who has the right to lay ultimate claim to the title ‘Studds of the Mudd.’ They’ve gone back and forth with the title in the past. Even if your there just to support your team, you’ll want to stick around to see if Mesquite Fire and Rescue will win “Studds of the Mudd” for the second year in a row.

You don’t have to become a stick in the mudd to donate. Businesses can sponsor teams; last year many businesses such as Lindi Corp, Mesquite Showgirls, Mesa View Regional Hospital, L&M Welding, and Washington Federal sponsored a team so high school students would have the chance to play.

Major sponsors are also a huge part in the success of the event, they included the Eureka Community Initiative, Reliance Connects and the City of Mesquite Parks & Recreation Department.

Mesquite Rotary Members make it their mission to give to the Mesquite Community in many ways. Now it’s your turn to have fun and help Rotary help Mesquite and surrounding communities.

Teams require 6 players at a cost of $30 per player. Students with IDs can sign up for $20.
