The finale was strawberry shortcake with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream! Perfect with a cup of coffee. We can’t show enough appreciation for those women who have influenced us, and guided us throughout our lives. But, we can share a small token of our gratefulness by having a wonderful luncheon and in some small way enriching their day.
We chose a speaker named Mary Ann Bucci who is a very well-known artist and author. She brought one painting of a whimsical Victorian woman in a garden that she had painted. Mary Ann dressed like the woman complete with a black floppy hat and a vintage ruffle corset fishtail skirt with ankle heel boots. Her book is titled “Stories & Art” and she shared many of her paintings with us. Her paintings are usually of local buildings and landmarks in Muskingum County.
Mary Ann brought her own special magnets of her paintings for each of our guests. Among the door prizes we gave out were prints of some of Mary Ann’s paintings.
The women residents enjoyed the luncheon. They said it was the best celebration ever!
