COSHOCTON -- The Coshocton Business and Professional Women (BPW) is planning its seventh annual Administrative Professionals Day Luncheon at Roberta's Catering Banquet & Event Center, 51 Pine St., Coshocton, Administrative Professionals Day will mark its 61st anniversary on April 24.
A style show provided by Peebles and Golden's Fashions, along with shoes and accessories from Carton's Shoes will begin at 11:30 a.m., and lunch will be served at noon. At 12:30 p.m., the keynote speaker, columnist Lori Law will be featured, and at 1 p.m. they will conclude the event.
Law's career as a writer began inauspiciously in intractable Mrs. Fineran's second grade classroom weaving her spelling words into droll parables marginally esteemed by her fellow 7-year old classmates. Inexorable, she persisted throughout a varied career path with discordant resume listings as a part time shoe department manager, portrait photographer, full-time mom, and nurse and stained glass artist before capturing the attention of local newspaper leadership with her unsolicited editorial submissions. As a freelance newspaper correspondent, contributor to the online magazine, "In The Fray," her sporadically tended blog, www.ynotbe.blogspot.com, and with her weekly column appearing in the Zanesville Times Recorder and the Coshocton Tribune, Law supports her unfortunate shoe addiction covering county fairs, bake sales, car shows and festivals, as well as the occasional evocative human interest pieces. Law has been equally prolific and destructive in producing her long awaited first novel. Best known as "that funny girl in the Sunday paper," Law is currently compiling a collection of her musings, tentatively titled, "Inklings," for publication and has recently published, "Darby's Song," a collaborative eBook detailing the experiences of three of the toughest cookies ever encountered, Darby, a 9-year old kidney transplant recipient, her mother, Jacqueline and Lori Gaitten, who gave Darby the gift of life through her donated kidney.
From 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Law can be found with her charming little dog, Ernie, seeing patients, families and staff and managing 90 + caring volunteers as the volunteer consultant for a not-for-profit hospice. Meddling in the lives of the six children, Law and her husband share, making stained glass and knitting hats for chemo patients keep Law busy the rest of the time.
The menu will be apple and honey glazed pork loin, long grain rice and wild rice pilaf, steamed green greens, garden salad and warm rolls. The cost for each meal is $18. Checks should be made out to: Coshocton BPW and mailed to Coshocton BPW, P.O. Box 656, Coshocton, OH 43812.
The luncheon gives employers an opportunity to show appreciation to their staff for the great job they do all year long.
