At New Horizons Downtown, we are gearing up for Women’s History Month in March. From our founder, co-owner, general manager, website whiz, store managers, and employees- women have been an integral part of New Horizons’ success from the beginning. That’s why we get excited when March comes around! Use this post as an excuse to learn more about Women's History Month, how women are celebrating internationally, or to simply tell the women in your life how much you appreciate them.
