Out of an abundance of caution for participants, Irving Parks and Recreation has postponed the annual Ms. Mature Pageant. The event's return date has not yet been announced.
Held each fall, the pageant strives to showcase the talents of senior citizens. Its goal is to demonstrate the worth of the senior citizen to the community, and to choose someone "young at heart" to represent the City of Irving at official functions. To learn more about the pageant or about the Heritage Senior Center, email Pat Davenport or call (972) 721-2496.

Dee is very active at the Heritage Senior Center and is a longtime volunteer, advocating for the victims of domestic violence.
