President’s Message March 2019
Spring Comes “Marching” In!
March brings with it the promise of gardening and warmer sunny days, as Earth turns its frostbitten cheek to winter and spins forth from the vernal equinox. Did you know that March is national Umbrella Month? Here are some more wacky things to celebrate in March:
- March 9: International Fanny Pack Day
- March 13: National Ear Muff Day
- March 18: National Panda Day
- March 21: Absolutely Incredible Kid Day
- March 23: World Meteorological Day
- March 31: World Backup Day
According to folklore, wear a sprig of rosemary in your hair to improve memory.
March brings rain and mud — sprinkle salt on carpets to dry out muddy footprints before vacuuming.
Here is some folklore for the season:
A wet spring brings a dry harvest.
Thunder in spring, Cold will bring
Well, March came in like a lion, so we can hope it will bring in spring.
Beth Konz, President
