Mesalands gears up for shrimp boil

For many in the Tucumcari area it has become an annual tradition. For the Mesalands Community College Foundation it has become a successful way to generate dollars for scholarships. It is called the annual Mesalands Community College Foundation’s Mardi Gras Cajun Shrimp Boil, and this year will mark the twelfth time the event takes place.
