The Mesquite Police Department wants to give the graduating class a fun filled night and a safe location to spend their time after graduation ceremonies. The evening will consist of entertainment, food, and prizes for the graduates.
Members of the Virgin Valley High School senior class along with Mesquite Police Officers will be contacting local Mesquite businesses to ask for donations, which will fund the food, prizes, and money to make this event possible. Each graduate will receive a raffle ticket, which may win them a valuable prize. Some of the prizes may include lap tops computers, televisions, and a chance to grab cash in a money wind booth.
The grad party will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the Mesquite Recreation Center. The doors will be open from 9:00 PM until midnight. The doors are locked from midnight to 4:00 AM and NO ONE will be allowed to leave, unless it is with a parent.
“The Mesquite Police Department wants to provide a safe and fun environment for graduating seniors,” said Chief Troy Tanner. “Our officers have volunteered their time planning the event and always enjoy spending quality time with our future leaders.” This will be the 10th year the police department has put on the event.
