March is a month to honor women's accomplishments and those who live out their compassion! It's also a time to be a bit crazy, have some fun, relax, recognize some pretty cool people and so much more.
Let’s take a look at our March lineup!
It is more important than ever to recognize the significant influence music education has on school-aged children. The first ‘National Music in Our Schools Month’ was held in New York City in March 1973.

Since 1987, March has been designated as National Women's History Month in the United States. Every woman has a story to tell and abilities to give about how they overcame hardship.
The American Red Cross is in desperate need of blood donations. Statistically, an American Red Cross emergency response occurs every 8 minutes. Every day, the Red Cross handles roughly 180 calls.
You are somebody's type! Consider volunteering or donating to the Red Cross. Now more than ever!
The NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, often known as March Madness, is a single-elimination tournament held each spring in the United States (NCAA).
The winner becomes the national champion. In 1939, the National Association of Basketball Coaches proposed the tournament, which Ohio State coach Harold Olsen spearheaded. Every year, it is one of the most major athletic events in the USA and is typically going on in March.
March 1, 2022 - #FatTuesday #MardiGras
This world-famous event is about to be in full swing!

Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday" in English, refers to the tradition of eating rich foods before Lent. It's also an occasion to wear beads and clown masks!
