Find Your Family Fun. It's Women's History Month. Who Inspires You?

By Melissa Shrader Editor/Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid March 8, 2021


Ah, spring is in the air and we are itching to start planting. I've been hearing the birds on my morning walks and I LOVE it! Our family is growing as families do. We had a celebration over the weekend to send off our niece and her fiance to Arizona to their new home! In September we will be celebrating Alysa and Tyler's marriage. We are excited for our daughter Kaity to see her oldest niece get married! They are planning a special role for her at the wedding! 

We are finalizing the Summer Camp Guide. And we have some fun recipes, experiments, and more coming this month. 

Who are your favorite women in history? There are so many women who have led the way for us to stand tall and follow our own paths. Pioneers in all walks of life. No matter the color, religion or other beliefs, these women have seen something that needed to be done or changed and taken the path to improving the situation. No matter what the situation may be. 

My role models change all the time. I have my staples Audrey Hepburn, Maya Angelo, Amanda Gorman, and so many more I just can't list them all. My mom and mother-in-law, Terah Watterson, Jennifer Lentz, Robin Hughes, there are so many I can't list them all. 

I found a few wonderful resources that give a wonderful glimpse into many strong women.

What are we up to?

We will be having a Virtual Summer Camp Fair February 28th - April 10th. Live and Video's released March 14th - March 27th, 2021.

The calendar is slowly beginning to repopulate with in-person events and we will keep virtual events too. Many of the usual events we would normally see this year have been canceled or reimagined and will not resume again till next year. Keep an eye out I will be verifying events asap and regularly. 

We will update you as we get information. Most updates will happen on Facebook and here. 

Online Events and Gatherings that are open to all are welcome on our calendar.

 Do you have a virtual class, A virtual event, Something fun for everyone? 

 Post it on our calendar at

Don't forget to check out Facebook too for other events that have been popping up randomly since the State has changed the Stay at home quarantine to the Safer at home guideline.

If you have other things you want to see Mac Kid do drop me an email. If you want to partner with Mac Kid I'd love to hear from you.

Remember with any event, If the weather looks questionable, - Always check in with the event itself to be sure the event is still on! You can email me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL. Now that COVID has come please comply with the COVID guidelines requested by each establishment and organizer. If you have a question about their policies please contact them directly. COVID Guidelines change regularly too so be sure to make sure that an event is still compliant and that it is not canceled.  We will update events regularly however we can't catch everything. 

If you have the newsletter you only have part of the fun! I post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram with holiday and everyday crafts, recipes, special offers, contests, news, and new events. (see the tabs on the right or at the bottom to visit the social site) 

Wishing you Love, Light, and fun for the week (and your life) ahead! 

Stay safe, Stay healthy, Love, Live and Be Fierce for what you believe,
