June 2019



June finally came, but it didn’t feel much like summer for the first part, though as the month is finishing out, we are now feeling the heat and humidity of summer, again. 

We hope that all of you have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July.  We remind you that automobile travel over the 4th of July holiday tends to be some of the most dangerous travel times of the year, and misuse of fireworks, pose another danger.  Stay safe out there.

We all know that July 4th is our Independence Day.  Did you also know that July 1st is Canada Day and July 14th is France’s Bastille Day, celebrating the French Revolution? 

On the lighter side, July 7th is National Strawberry Sundae Day.  July 9th is National Sugar Cookie Day.  July 10th is National Piña Colada Day.  July 17th is National Hot Dog Day.  July 21st is National Ice Cream Day, which also happens to be National Junk Food Day:  Coincidence?  July 25th is National Wine and Cheese Day.  Lots of reasons to celebrate.  

Please note that our office will be closed on Thursday, July 4th for Independence Day.
