The 3rd of Tammuz this year occurs on Shabbat [tonight and tomorrow]. Throughout Chabad this date is simply known as ''Gimmel Tammuz'' - the day of the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 5754 [June 12 1994].
The Rebbe played a huge part in my life during his later years, and whilst I did not ever meet the Rebbe in person, I have had several dreams where he has appeared and subsequently I have experienced answers to my questions and a couple of miracles.
Chabad has a mass of information on the Rebbe and Gimmel Tammuz which can be found here.
Vision of Geula has an interesting post about Gimmel Tammuz and the date of Moshiach. Click here to read.
