Women 2 Women - Let's Go Doodlin'!
We're gathering the women of Rotary together for a night of fun and fellowship on Wednesday, September 9, 2015. We're meeting for a private party at Let's Go Doodlin' (7705 Five Mile Road, Cincinnati - 45230) for wine and light appetizers. We'll have full use of their studio for you to create a functional or decorative pottery piece (prices range from a few dollars to $50 for their extra large items). Once your item is complete, Let's Go Doodlin' will fire your piece in their kilns and you can pick up your finished piece of pottery in one week (or we can bring it to Rotary for you). After our painting session, we'll travel a block or two and have dinner at Clough Crossings, a local restaurant housed in the former Clough Pike School, which was established in 1874. The restaurant features locally sourced meats, seafood, and produce and they are known for their wonderful cosmos! We hope you can join us - and be sure to bring a friend, neighbor or prospective member!
