International Women's Day
International Women's Day is March 8. Usually, Dotsy, Barbara, Lori, Peaches, and I go to Winnsboro to Lou Vinery to celebrate. This year our favorite place is closed. It was a very congenial place, and close by.
The first time I heard about International Women's Day, was from daughter Susie. In Italy, where she has lived for a long time, it is very much a holiday, not official, but celebrated with girl friends going out for dinner, or just getting together. Over the years, here in Scroggins, we have tried different things on March 8, such as collecting canned goods for the food pantry in Pittsburg, or money for a children's advocacy group.
