March brings Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day on March 8th. This month presents the perfect opportunity to celebrate those women who have inspired you through their leadership, creativity, willingness to lift others
We encourage you to take time this month to thank those local women who are helping to make Clallam County a better place and to join us at one of the fabulous events happening in the next two weeks celebrating the history, culture
This Friday, March 1st starting at 7 PM, Rosie and the Riveters will be playing at Port Angeles High School. This trio of female performers did not set out to get political with their music.

The result is Ms. Behave – a collection of gritty, sultry, vintage-inspired folk anthems that paint a portrait of a woman’s voice in a man’s world. If you are ready to get fired up for our next election season, these ladies might be just the magic you need. Additional bonus, 20% of their merchandise profits are invested in women’s projects and businesses around the world through KIVA.org, which means you get to hear great music while supporting good causes.
