With this beautiful weather, many thoughts are going toward Spring. And even though it is not here yet, and we may well have some ‘rough’ weather prior to its arrival, it is not too soon to think about and plan for the upcoming events and activities that will be here before we know it.
Yet this month, if you like music (and who doesn’t), you won’t want to miss Retro Night featuring hits from the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s, a fundraiser for Ohio Valley Youth Network at 6:30pm on Saturday, February 25th at the Fellowship Hall, First Westminster Presbyterian Church, 235 N. Fourth Street.
Coming up next month, there is a little something for everyone, including the 2017 Home & Garden Show, March 3-5, this year at the new location of St. Florian Hall, Luray Drive in Wintersville; St. Patrick’s Day fun with the 6th Annual Benefit for the Jefferson County Humane Society hosting St. Patrick’s Dueling Pianos Party on March 17th at St. Florian Hall in Wintersville and on March 18th, the 8th Annual Campbell-Dickinson Run/Bike/Walk & Noah Long Kid’s 1K Fun Run, as well as St. Baldrick’s Shave Off at the TEMS Building, 201 S. 4th Street, Toronto. Another Annual Fundraiser during March is the AIM Women’s Center Banquet on March 20th at 6:00pm at St. Florian Hall, Luray Drive, Wintersville. And don’t forget the March “What’s Up Downtown” on the 29th of the month at the Fort Steuben Hotel Ballroom, North 4th Street, Steubenville.
April may well bring showers, but this year will also bring the 12th Annual Child Advocacy Fundraising Dinner on April 1st at St. Florian Hall, Wintersville. Also two favorite yearly ‘shows’ come up in April – the Spring Quilt Show at Fort Steuben Visitor Center, which runs from April 3rd to the 14th and the Steubenville Art Association Spring Art Show, running from April 22 to May 6th, at Eastern Gateway Community College, Steubenville. And if you like to read, a definite must for you is the Pleasant Hills School House Historical Museum Book sale, taking place at 3125 SR 213 Steubenville on April 8th.
May takes you from a relaxing “Tea for Two” event at the Elizabeth House Tea Room 438 Union Street, Mt Pleasant, on May 20th to an uplifting ‘rollicking’ good time at the long awaited opening night of the 2017 Fort Steuben Concert Series on May 25th at the Berkman Amphitheater in Fort Steuben Park, at 6:30pm. Historic Fort Steuben also has its annual Fundraising Dinner on May 10th at the Hellenic Hall of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.
Then look out for June when things really get moving, but more on that another day!
