March Events Calendar (2011)


March is Women's History Month, it highlights and celebrates the contributions of women throughout history. Women have made significant contributions across the board in just about every field.

Monthly Events

American Red Cross Month.
The Red Cross was created by Clara Barton in 1881. American Red Cross Month recognizes the role the Red Cross plays in saving the lives of people around the world. For more information visit http://www.redcross.org/museum/history/marchis.asp

Leeks and Green Onions Month. Members of the onion family, leeks and green onions (scallions) look similar—but each adds its own unique flavor to food. I was unable to find out if this is really celebrated, but did learn from my gardening friend that she starts her leeks and green onion indoors in March.

Women’s History Month. An outgrowth of International Women’s Day on March 8 of every year, Women’s History Month highlights and celebrates the contributions of women throughout history. For more information, visit http://www.nwhp.org/

Weekly Events

National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week, March 1-7.

Celebrate Your Name Week, March 6-12. Who would you be without your name? Learn what your name means and whom you were named after, explore your family’s roots, and embrace your unique identity.
