March Around

Dear All,
 With the days slowly getting longer, the sun seems to be peeking out more, and the temperatures not as winter like, it is a great time to spend time getting out
 and doing some things around our State.  There is plenty going on.  Maybe you enjoy birdwatching, having some real Maple Syrup, and what would March in
 Indiana be without basketball tournaments – both high school and college!  A lot to see and do around the State.  Take advantage of the weather when it is nice
 as we all know March winds can blow and there may be snow as we head into basketball championships.
