BIRTHDAYS:  Sean Gallagher Happy Birthday to Sean, and if we missed you on the list, Happy Birthday to you too from all of us at W-V-B-I and your Beaver Island Community Center.

TRAFFIC:  None. But, let’s be careful out there.

ON THIS DAY On March 7, 1965, in Selma, Alabama, a 600-person civil rights demonstration ends in violence when marchers are attacked and beaten by state troopers and sheriff’s deputies. The day’s events became known as “Bloody Sunday.”

WORD OF THE DAY: Our Merriam Webster word of the day

Now, to wrap up for this Beaver Island Tuesday…

Here’s a thought for the day from Benjamin Franklin: “If a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”


On a lighter note: When I was a kid my mom bought me a cheap dictionary for my birthday.

But then, I couldn’t find the words to thank her.


That’s the W-V-B-I Community Calendar for this Beaver Island Tuesday, March 7th, 2023. I’m Greg Doig reporting from W-V-B-I’s Langford Family Studios wishing you a great day and asking you: why not go ahead and make it the best day ever? And, thanks for listening.
