Thank you to all the wonderful people who came out to Nibbles and Sips last evening. It was a pleasure to have Mesquite elected officials, old friends and new friends here at Opal Lawrence Historical Park. If you missed the event, here's some photos of our Board, staff and attendees.

If you are up near the Florence Ranch Homestead, you have seen some activity lately. The Homestead is getting a new fence!

Because of the construction, though, we will be closed this week on the usual tour days of Thursday and Friday, as well as next week, July 18 and 19. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

We are hopeful we will be able to reopen July 25 and 26, but stay in touch - we will update as the project proceeds!

For further information, call 972-216-6468.

A big shout-out to the Mesquite Parks & Recreation Department for this tremendous facelift!

We had some unexpected visitors today at Lawrence Park - the four-legged kind!

Very sweet dogs - one male and the other female. The big male is an intact pit bull; the female is a gray mix with beautiful eyes!

If you know where these little ones belong, please pass the word along. We have a field trip today so if the owners don't come soon, they will be at Animal Services waiting for a pick-up!

It's a beautiful day to visit Opal Lawrence Historical Park and shop with the Mesquite Garden Club!
