Women Can / Women Do

Women Can / Women Do

For the third year in a row, Northern Community Mediation (NCM) was to have been a table designer at
both the Charlevoix and Petoskey Women Can / Women Do luncheons.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the Charlevoix luncheon at Castle Farms
has been cancelled. Hopefully, the Petoskey event will; not have to
succumb to the same fate. NCM has a fun theme for its table.

2018 – The First Year

As part of its 25th Anniversary Celebration in 2018, Northern Community Mediation (NCM) decorated one of the tables at Women Can/Women Do in both Charlevoix and Petoskey. The Charlevoix event was held at Castle Farms on Wednesday, June 13, and the Petoskey event was held at the Lange Center in Bay Harbor on Wednesday, September 12.

NCM’s theme for the table was the “Queen of Hearts.” The NCM staff is forever grateful to William of Monarch in Petoskey for his assistance in designing the table. He even loaned us his Queen of Hearts.


2019 – The Second Year

The staff had so much fun working on Women Can / Women Do in 2018 that it was decided that NCM would again design a table for both events in 2019. The 2019 theme was Women of Note. Featured artists were Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, Billie Holiday, Carole King, Cher, Dolly Parton, Lesley Gore and Rebe McIntire.
