May CNSONO Meeting

Monday May 16, 2016

We were all very excited about our Paint and Sip night which was held Sunday May 29th.  Geauga Paints taught us how easy it was to get a painting started then inspired us to be artists for an evening. Some were better painters than others....and some "sipped" more than others. We all had a great time !

        Our May meeting was full of new ideas and many new faces. We discussed what is most important to all club members in order to build a bright, sustainable future. We had a roll call of our various Celtic backgrounds. Many are of Irish & Scottish nationalities but we were happily surprised by how many of us also had Scot/Welsh background, Welsh/Irish and one member with Irish/Cornish lineage.  

Our next event is Thursday June 23rd at the Lake County Captains game for our Celtic Nations night.

CNSONO  will show our Celtic Pride !
A few members attended the Ohio Scottish Games on Saturday the 25th.
Such a great variety of pipes.....and kilts !

Celtic Nations Night at Lake County Captains
