Having just passed Beltane and as we march towards Midsummer, so far, this has been a busy year for the Reno Celtic Celebration! I and two other people were welcomed onto the board in January, and the ensuing months have seen us brainstorming to make an awesome festival! The board meetings are the third Monday of each month and we talk about what’s happening with the planning of the festival and what’s up and coming in the community.
The Heelan Coo’s (that’s Highland Cattle for those of you not familiar with Scottish lingo…) are one of the first things that endeared the Celtic Festival to me. Sometimes, in October, it’s still hot. I would think in the desert, in October, when it is hot, would be a very not nice time to be a fuzzy cow. The above picture was NOT taken at one of THOSE times, but rather in 2010 when we had an AUTHENTIC Celtic event complete with driving rain, wind, and snow on Sunday =) In 2011 for a lot of different reasons, the Heelan Coo’s could not make it to the Celebration, which made ALL of us sad. Rumor has it, however, THEY ARE MAKING A RETURN JOURNEY IN 2012! I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. But I’m a nerd.
So. You may get tired of me real soon on the Celtic Celebration website here. This is me:
My name is Danielle and I am a compulsive volunteer =) I just took over the website from Rene, who did it for many years, and who I am eternally thankful to for being so helpful with the transition, transparent with her information, and generous with her time walking me through things or directing me to the proper place.
I was welcomed to the board this January of 2012, and I look forward to doing what I can to make the Celtic Celebration better. A new web format is one of the first things. I will also be handling vendors this year. I hope to put a lot of useful information here. For the time being, if you need to get a hold of me, I can be reached at info (at) renoceltic (dot) org. That currently comes to me.
I think I have all the content moved over from the old site. If you see something amiss, see something I’ve missed, or something you think should be included here, please contact me and let me know, I’d love to hear from folks!
