Walsh University Women’s Committee Kentucky Derby Party took place in May at Brookside Country Club. The party featured hors d’oeuvres, dinner, a cash bar, raffle prizes, basket drawing, Kentucky Bourbon raffle and country music recording artist Zach Paxson. Guests wore derby attire, and the proceeds benefited Walsh University scholarships.
Doreen Stone has worked at Bender’s Tavern in Canton for more than three years, and has been tending bar for a total of 32 years. She said she makes “a lot” of Mint Juleps on Derby Day because Bender’s usually brings in a crowd to watch the race at the restaurant. Bender’s provided each of these Triple Crown specialty drinks.
