World Penguin Day!

       World Penguin Day is a great opportunity to learn about and appreciate one of the few natives of Antarctica. On this day, spend a little time learning about them.... a pictorial book or internet site is fun. You can also watch a documentary of these cute and popular, grounded birds.       These days are also a time to wear black and white---penguin colors. However, wearing a tuxedo in their honor is optional. It is also popular today to tell a penguin joke or two.     World Penguin Day coincides with the annual northward migration of penguins. This happens each year on or around April 25th. Penguins do not fly. Rather, they walk, or waddle their way to and from.

Big Wind Day! I Was Blown Away!

Big Wind Day commemorates the highest wind speed ever recorded on the planet. Can you guess where? No, it wasn't in the middle of a hurricane or a tornado.
On April 12, 1934, the staff of the Mount Washington Observatory recorded the highest surface wind ever measured, anywhere on earth. This big wind was officially recorded at 231 miles per hour. Imagine the difficulties of even making a recording under those conditions back then! Will this record ever be broken? Perhaps, but until then, enjoy Big Wind Day.

Not the "Big Wind" you expected- - When talking to the family about documenting "Big Wind" day, family members teased "quick everyone, get out of the room!"

Golfer's (Golf Day) Day! FORE!!

Some avid golfers might suggest that any and every day is Golfer's Day. But on this day, it's official. The only question is, does this day honor the golfer, the sport, or the weather? Well, it's a little of each. Golfer's Day is an opportunity to be thankful that someone invented this addicting, yet relaxing hobby.
Also referred to as "Golf Day", there is only one proper way to enjoy this day. And, that's out on the golf course. When Golfer's Day falls on a week day, it is even more special. That means you now have an excuse to take a day off of work and go play a round ...or two. Regardless of your score today, you know that even a bad day on the greens, is better than a good day at work.

School Librarian Day! Read a Book Today!

School Librarian Day honors those who serve our young students so well in the local school libraries. The education of young minds needs to be nurtured and fed. Feeding those minds with good quality, yet challenging reading material and reference materials is what school librarians excel at.
Take a minute today, to appreciate all the hard work that a school librarian does daily, and the patience the librarian displays, as he or she aids our youth.
You may choose to show your appreciation to School Librarians in a variety of ways, including:
  • Give the librarian a big smile and a big "Thank You!"
  • Tell you librarian that she is doing a wonderful job.
  • Send an Ecard
  • Buy an age appropriate book or reference material, and donate it to the library
