City Council

(Jean, Carol & Rosealee) appeared at City Council to present the beneficiaries of the Women’s History and Culture Center 2022 Preen Your Pet Calendar Contest/Fundraiser their donations. These donations were a result of the registrations of all the pets in the contest and the votes that came in throughout the month of June. Three local businesses provided access to the voting boxes in their businesses and we’re so grateful for them~ Danielle’s Chocolates & Popcorn, The UPS Store on Pioneer and The Front Porch Flowers and Gifts.

Donations also came in the mail and all totaled over $3,000. Each beneficiary for this fundraiser, Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, We Care for Animals and Friends of Mesquite Animal Shelter EACH received a check for $1,015.66. We are so honored to be able to help with the wonderful care and love these animals receive in our community.

Our beautiful calendar will be on sale in the fall, at a cost of $10 each. Any residual monies raised after the cost of printing, after generous donations from the community who sponsored ads in the calendar, will be used to benefit the community in future initiatives. Please email us at to pre-order a calendar, or several. Thanks to everyone who supported this fun and worthy fundraiser. See you all next year!!
