What did you do on International Women's day?

Wednesday, March 8, was International Women’s day, a wonderful concept and certainly celebration worthy. What did you do on International Women’s day?  A couple of weeks ago I figured I would wear red, done. But my energized and motivated daughter decided to plan and hold a Women’s day march right here about 6 days ago. We are her parents so my husband and I, of course, were all in.

Emily called the Village Hall, talked with the mayor and conferred with the police. She planned with women business owners and found someone to do a musical sound track. She arrived early and got the the sound system coming.

Cliff and I? We showed up. Oh, and we wore red.

For us, that was all in as we also kept an eye on our grand-kids who had a ball running around with all the other children there. It was a family friendly event with warmish temps but a bit of wind! You can also read about it in the local paper.

Take a look and see what I did on International Women’s day.

Sew happy!
