Does it feel like spring yet?
Below is our very light calendar of weekend events. Reminder: Our calendar is free to post (featured events cost a slight amount).
But before we get to the calendar, here are some things to know about the coming days.
March 24 is National Cocktail Day. It's an opportunity for people to enjoy their favorite hard beverages. These can include classics like the martini or the cosmopolitan, or something a little bit more modern, such as the mojito. The day also encourages people to craft their unique cocktails as the flavor combinations are endless.
March 25 is National Medal of Honor Day. It was on March 25, 1863, when the first Medals of Honor were presented. Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton presented Medals of Honor (Army) to six members of “Andrews Raiders” for their volunteering and participation during an American Civil War raid in April of 1862. Created in 1861, the Medal of Honor is the United States of America’s highest military honor. It is awarded only to US military personnel, by the President of the United States in the name of Congress, for personal acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty.
March 26 is Purple Day, or Epilepsy Awareness Day.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects many people around the world. It can produce periods of uncontrollable tremors in the body. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness.
