Are you feeling the effects of winter? The season’s reduced sunlight and other weather conditions can lead to boredom and restlessness for both adults and children. Many people look forward to national holidays, like Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day, to break up the monotony of winter. To help fight cabin fever, consider participating in some lesser-known, unofficial national observances:
February 9: National Pizza Day – With endless combinations of toppings, a well-built pizza can bring a smile to almost everyone’s face. Create and enjoy your perfect pizza on February 9.
February 17: National Random Acts of Kindness Day – Make a point to do nice things for others. You might just make their day, as well as yours! And having your kids participate is a great way to reinforce the values of kindness and respect.
February 26: National Tell a Fairy Tale Day – Who doesn’t love a good story? Share a classic favorite with someone you love or make up one of your own. Ask your kids to let their imaginations run wild and tell you a story. You may be amazed by their creativity.

West Bend is very excited to introduce the Spirit of the Silver Lining Award! The Spirit of the Silver Lining Award embodies the dedication of nonprofit organizations and the generosity of the independent agents who support them. The award was recently presented to seven West Bend agents and six organizations, along with grants from West Bend's Independent Agents’ Fund.
Since we established the Independent Agents’ Fund in 2006, we’ve heard so many amazing stories about our independent agents giving back to the communities where they work and live. We’re proud of how they dedicate their time, talents, and resources to a wide range of causes, truly exemplifying the Spirit of the Silver Lining. This award is our opportunity to acknowledge and highlight some of these generous agents and the nonprofit organizations they passionately support.
Recently, we were thrilled to present the first Spirit of the Silver Lining Awards and grants totaling $90,500 to worthy nonprofit organizations.
