Summer is right around the corner! Here’s a roundup of some of the events we’re excited about in May.
Ring that Bell
On Wednesday, May 31, starting at 11:45 a.m., Fox Valley Hematology and Oncology (FVHO), The American Cancer Society and partners across the nation will ring bells for one minute to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day. The event takes place at FVHO’s Appleton and Oshkosh locations, 3925 N. Gateway Drive, Appleton as well as 491 Washburn St. in Oshkosh.
Miron Construction is installing and donating the bell, which weighs more than 500 pounds, for the event.
Ring that Bell was inspired by a time-honored tradition that takes place at cancer care facilities all over the country. The bells signify a turning point in the lives of cancer patients and represent the meaningful moment when their chemotherapy or radiation treatment ends.
Third annual Community Art Day Event
The Trout Museum of Art and the Fox Cities Educators for the Arts present the third annual Community Art Day on Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., at Houdini Plaza in downtown Appleton.
The free and family-friendly art activities offered at stations throughout Houdini Plaza will include many fun art and craft activities. For a link to all the fun click here.
Don’t forget about yo mama! Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14. Whether it’s a nice plant or bouquet of flowers, a simple Mother’s Day brunch or even one of those Yankee Candles with a picture of you and your mom on it, we wish you all the best!
It’s the unofficial kick-off to summer – Memorial Day. This year Memorial Day is Wednesday, May 31. Many will celebrate by attending a parade, cooking out on the grill, swimming on the lake and soaking up that summer sunshine, but let’s not forget the real meaning behind Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is a day set aside to remember and honor those who have paid the ultimate price for our country. So, take a moment to between the sun and fun to think about everything these individuals have given up for us.
