I don't know about you, but this is my favorite time of the year in Ashland. With OSF opening (to rave reviews, I might add) the sidewalks are beginning to fill once again with the extra energy of visitors and friends. I also love that all the early flowers and blooming trees are bright reminders that Spring is just around the corner. Thank you to the Parks Department and all the residents and business owners who have added colorful splashes of living color to our already beautiful city.
It really is an exciting time of year.
This weekend Ashland will be celebrating International Women's Day (thanks to the Daily Tidings for the great article.) Mayor Stromberg has been a strong supporter of this event for the past couple of years, and he encourages all women, and the men who know they are incredible, to attend.
