 Have you ever experienced the excitement of seeing professional baseball players practicing during spring training? If you have, you’re really lucky! The purpose of spring training is to let the teams practice in real game-like conditions. You can either watch them practicing or playing a game of scrimmage.

In Arizona, spring training started in the middle of February and ends just before the start of the regular season. Traditionally, opening day for the regular season is the first week of April.

 Have you ever stayed in a wolf’s lodge with all the fun under one roof? Well, I have—it was called the Great Wolf Lodge. I went just before New Year’s for two days, Dec. 28 and 29, 2019. There are other locations for the lodge in states such as California, Texas and Washington. I went to the one in Scottsdale at Talking Stick.

 I recently toured the Valley Metro Mobility Center. Parked inside the building is a real bus along with a bus stop. The bus was driven in when the office was being built, and the center was built around it! The Valley Metro Mobility Center is dedicated to helping the elderly and those with impairments regain their independence—it helps them to ride Valley Metro transportation, such as buses and light rail. Between 430 and 530 people come to the Mobility Center each month, which means that many people are gaining the ability to use public transportation.

 Although not a national holiday, some states do observe Susan B. Anthony Day. Those states are California, Florida, New York, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Anthony’s state of birth, Massachusetts.

February 15 is a celebration of Susan B. Anthony’s birthday. Anthony was born in 1820 in Adams, MA. Her father was a farmer and later became a cotton mill manager. Her mother, Lucy, came from a family that fought in the American Revolution and served in the Massachusetts government. Anthony had seven brothers and seven sisters.
