I should do more research as to when this started and by who, but without giving credits where they are due, I would like to commend the persons who started GNO. Barbara Bolitho (Woodland Realty) heads it up with e-mails and keeping and arranging the schedule. She also includes information about goings on at the Park Theatre, Specials at local establishments and other events of interest.
Splendid Things (Sophies Dog Bakery) and Legends of the Celts hosted the GNO on April 11 at the McCormick House. First let me say, what a nice group of women, how organized and congenial they all are. They arrive with bottle of wine and glass in hand, as well as a dish to pass, some very creative ones indeed.
We held the event at the McCormick House, which is an attraction in itself. Jan (from Splendid) and I brought some of our new and highlighted items to show and sell. Jan has two stores in one building so she wanted to let women know that she has a nice variety of Hats, Boot Toppers, Leggings, Coobie Bras and More. I wanted to dispell the myth that you have to be Irish to come into the Legends of the Celts Store.
Some don't know that Legends of the Celts has a wonderful line of cosmetic face creams, face mask, body lotion and shower gels. We also have a fantastic range of fragrances. One that is very well known worldwide is Inis, but in addition to that we have Moonlilght Inis, Sonas, Caru, Lavendar and Heather and Moss.
We also have pewter jewelry which is very affordable. You will be amazed at the styles. They are bold and striking in style. They are made in Ireland but do not exhibit the Celtic style as much as they are contemporary fashion. They are a must see.
Anyway, back to the GNO. Jan and I had a great time hosting. All the women were wonderful. The conversation was non-stop. If you haven't been to one, consider going, bring a friend. You will meet a host of women from Drummond, Cable, Namakagon, Birchwood, Hayward, Stone Lake. You will have an evening of enjoyment which will boost your energy, give you a reason to smile. We all need that.
