Diamonds and Cappuccino, Ladies Night Out
Ladies were treated to gourmet cappuccino, a chocolate fountain, and dazzling diamonds at a local jewelry store.
If you followed the four searchlights beaming across the night sky on Thursday you would have arrived at the 7th Annual Ladies Night Out held at David Douglas Diamonds and Jewelry. The searchlights could be seen miles away.
Ladies enjoyed gourmet Cappuccino, a chocolate fountain, strawberries and marshmallows, and jewelry browsing. No purchases were allowed. Each lady created a wish list filled with earrings, rings, bracelets and pendants. The idea is to make Christmas shopping easier for the men in their lives.
Approximately 75 women attended the event that included drawings every 15 minutes for fun give-aways, and a free holiday gift once a wish list was submitted.
"I love the place. Everything I've ever had made, I've had made here," Vi Hardy said.
For anyone who missed the event, you can visit David Douglas Diamonds and Jewelry six days a week to make a wish list. Wish lists are kept on file. When a friend or loved one wants to buy you a gift for a birthday, anniversary, or holiday, they can visit the store and purchase something that's on your wish list.
The store is owned by Doug Meadows who lives in the community with his wife, Mary, and their five children. Meadows places great importance in giving back to the community. An annual sponsor of local fundraisers and events, Meadows is also a donor to Life School International, a ministry-based Christian organization involved in teaching, training and equipping people from all nations.
The business is named after two brothers, Dave and Doug Meadows. For more than 75 years, the Meadows family of jewelers has maintained a tradition of fine craftsmanship and quality service to their customers.
