Kelly Brothers to mix it up

As the Irish say, “You’ll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind.” So, be outstanding in your field and join the networking at Kelly Brother’s Painting, Inc. and CATT mixer.. Expect a crowd. Everyone loves to celebrate with the Irish. Meet the “Truckee Business Klan” and community organization members at 11020 Trails End Court, Pioneer Commerce Center near Clear Capitol. Look for the dancing little people Thursday, March 13, 5-7 p.m.

A 5 p.m. Truckee-Donner Chamber ribbon cutting will dedicate the Kelly Brother’s new office building. A splash of green will be served on draft with food by Full Belly Deli. Best dressed Irishman and Irishwoman win cash.

NOTE: You better be lookin’ for those green socks. We’ll not be allowing anyone to prove they are “wearin’ the green” by showing their shorts. This is a respectable event even if the Kellys are in charge. Fun, secrets, a prize or two and a bit of Irish magic. There will be a shuttle from and to your car for your convenience.
