The Mesquite Senior Games (MSG) is now underway; their mission is to promote the health and fitness of anyone 50 years and better while stimulating tourism in the city of Mesquite, NV. Participants generally compete in male and female divisions, in five-year age groups (50-54 and up).  With only a few exexceptions, your competition age is the age you are as of December 31 of the competition year.

Activities this week include Shotgun sports, Long Drive and Fitness Hike; join them for fun, fitness, and friends!

Boris the Painting Pig is coming to the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum on Saturday, March 7.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to paint with or observe a pig with outstanding artistic talent. Boris fell off the back of a trailer as a piglet which was heading to California but has recovered and his new home is Windy’s Pig Rescue in Overton. It was discovered that Boris has a rather unique talent for a pig which he will demonstrate for us.

Mesquite Republican Women meet the second Wednesday of each month at 840 Hafen Lane (Veterans Center) Doors open at 5 p.m. meeting begins at 5:30. For more information call 702-346-3804 or email sherriejh@gmail.com.
