Employee Appreciation Day
The first Friday in March is observed as National Employee Appreciation Day. On March 3, it is a day for employees to take a break from climbing the corporate ladder (in a skirt) and let our bosses shower us with appreciation.
International Women’s Day
As we look for peace in a world of turmoil, International Women’s Day serves as a celebration for the vast and the variety of achievements of women. It also serves as a reminder that women are still fighting for gender equality.
Since its founding in the early 1900s, International Women’s Day has provided support for women while campaigning for peace during some of the world’s most historic events. With growth comes change, and it is appropriate that this year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange. International Women’s Day is calling on its sisters in solidarity to raise awareness in hopes to have a better working world, as well as a more gender-inclusive world.

The survivorship support group meetings will take place at FVHO’s Health & Wellness Center, located at 3925 N. Gateway Drive, Appleton.

St. Patrick’s Day
Ah, St. Patrick’s Day, a religious holiday celebrating the Catholic missionary St. Patrick who was credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. A more popular legend of our man St. P was that he rid Ireland of snakes during the fifth century A.D.
Today, however, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of everything Irish, which includes but is not limited to dancing, drinking, corned beef and cabbage, anything green, drinking, four-leafed clovers, and did I say drinking?
If you’re still looking for ways to celebrate that are suitable for all ages, head over to New London for Wisconsin’s largest St. Patrick’s Day parade and Irish Festival.

The Trout Museum of Art’s Regional Artist Gallery
Wednesday, March 1 through Sunday, June 25, The Trout Museum of Art will display The Artist’s View by Ann Herzog Wright in the Regional Artist Gallery, located on the third floor of the Fox Cities Building for the Arts.
The exhibit features artwork in a variety of media, including watercolor, oil, hand-colored etchings and sculptures. The pieces share the theme of the simple things that surround Wright, including landscapes, birds, cows and other elements in nature. Wright’s fascination with the people and landscapes around her has fostered her directions in art.

The gallery is open free of charge to the public during museum hours and is a community-oriented space that features high quality artwork from regional artists.
