SADOE President Featured In Celtic Life Cover Story

SADOE President Willie Puchert was featured cover story in the August edition of Celtic Life Magazine on how Celtic Festivals are recovering from COVID.

Puchert serves on the local Celtic Celebration Board as its secretary and as well as the festival’s publicist. To read the article, flip to page 53 of the this link.

Unfortunately, the Northern Nevada Celtic Celebration was cancelled this year  due to lack of startup funds from the pandemic and instead, the board opted to hold a Celtic Concert & Ceilidh on May 21. The festival’s board is in the process of dissolution. The SADOE Board will consider “inheriting” the festival in a more limited capacity at an upcoming meeting.
