For the first time in the history of Manotick’s Women’s Day, the patios were open at local restaurants.
The early November event is an opportunity for local retailers and businesses to showcase themselves to well over a thousand women who spend the day shopping, receiving gifts, being entertained and pampered, and getting ideas for Christmas shopping and future days out on the town.
The weather could not have been better, as the traditional grey skies, chilly winds and occasional snow or cold rain was replaced with warm sunshine and record temperatures.
Thank you to all of you for your participation in making this Day so awesome,” said Manotick BIA Chair Dr. Salima Ismail. “I was out and about the whole day and all of the feet to the street were so happy and many were carrying bags of newly purchased treasures!”
The Manotick firefighters were once again greeting ladies throughout the village, giving out a pair of gloves as a gift for the first 1,000 women out on the streets shopping.
The Manotick BIA will be holding its AGM Nov. 23 at the Manotick Legion.
