Student Showcase at East Las Vegas Community Senior Center
Join the fun at the East Las Vegas Community Senior Center, 250 N. Eastern Ave., June 28 as it presents the “Student Showcase” from 2 to 5 p.m.
The free event is open to the public and will feature the works of students whose star is ripe for shining.
On the main stage, see students show off their salsa, senior dance and children’s ballet folklorico skills. Musical performances from mariachi to guitar also are scheduled.
If performance isn’t your bag, then grab a soft drink and a snack and admire the artwork exhibitions in drawing, pottery, weaving and painting.
The event is a great way to check out the center and enroll for the upcoming Summer II session. Some classes are offered in Spanish. Prices range from $25-$75 per six-week session, starting July 22 and running through Aug. 30. For more information, call 229-1515.
Free homeownership seminar

The City Impact Center, a faith-based community group, hosts the event at its facility at 950 E. Sahara Ave., starting at 10 a.m.
Participants can learn about FHA loans and home inspections as well as taking part in a mock title company closing ceremony.
