From the Editor's Desk:

OMG!  Did you think that January was EVER going to get over? How sick and tired of the snow are you? Well, I do have really good news to report that did occur in January. The Women of Gloucester County Online Magazine hosted the COACH Bingo Fundraiser for our favorite charity, People for People Foundation of Gloucester County.

We sold an insane amount of tickets and had 12 generous donations from local businesses. I am so happy and glad that everyone had a great time and we raised a lot of money for PFPF. We actually raised $5,325. Many thanks to all who supported our efforts to make this a success!!!

Here are a few Happy COACH Happy Campers!!!! Do you believe that the middle picture is a COACH Cake baked by our new sponsor Sweetsboro Pastry Shoppe of Swedesboro, NJ?

The Welsh originally called the second month of the year – “y mis bach” meaning the little month. During the time of Shakespeare it was called ‘Feverell’.

3. The flower of this month is a violet or sometimes a primrose and the birthstone is amethyst (which represents sincerity).

4. Three big holidays are held in February: Groundhog’s day (2nd), St. Valentine’s Day (14th) and President’s day (3rd Monday).
