Yes, I am happy to announce the beginning of a series of monthly seminars on Saturday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You are invited to register for this free event “Focus on Entrepreneurship for Women.” Millville Development Corporation has teamed up with Erica Milbourne, owner of Everything Classie Sweet Soulful Café, here in the Glasstown Arts District; and with Brenda Hill Riggins of Mars Contractors, Inc. to present the series.

The seminars will be held at the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts, 22 N. High Street, Millville, in the Witt Room. Hill Riggins is a nationally known speaker, advocate, and mentor to individuals in following their dreams and plans of business ownership and independence.

Milbourne, a lifetime resident of Millville, opened her fulltime bakery-café in 2021 at the corner of N. High and Mulberry streets.

Please join us at the first “Meet and Greet” session on March 5. Registration is required by e-mailing: millvilledevelopment@comcast.net or by calling me at 856-293-0556 no later than Friday, March 4. Space is limited. ***

For our history buffs, the Millville Army Air Field Museum will be hosting its quarterly Movie Night at their Hank Wyble Research Library & Education Center on Tuesday, March 8, at 6 p.m. in the building next to the museum at the Millville Executive Airport. This is a free event; donations are always welcome.

This night’s feature is The Photographer of Mauthausen. The film tells the story of a man’s heroic efforts to survive in a death camp and document the horror to hold the Nazis accountable for their crimes after the war. Mauthausen was a brutal concentration camp and headquarters for the Nazi ‘gulag’ in Austria, which held hundreds of thousands of prisoners. It was liberated by the 11th Armored Division in May 1945.

This is a serious piece of history. Please use your discretion when deciding who should attend from your family.
