Public Service Day

The United Nations (UN) introduced Public Service Day in 2003. It is a date to be thankful for all the men and women who work in a public service simplifying the life of the individual and organize cohabitation in big communities. Public Service Day also aims to inform young people about jobs in the public sector and encourage them to start their career there. The work the servants of the public service do every day is a valuable asset to society, and Public Service Day offers an opportunity to recognize that. (from www.cute-calendar.com

 

Take Your Dog to Work Day

Tomorrow, June 23rd, marks the 19th annual event. It was created by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to celebrate the great companions dogs make and promote their adoptions. It also encourages employers to experience the joys of pets in the workplace for one day to support their local pet community.

PSI feels that through the events, non-pet owners are able to witness the special bond their coworkers have with their pets firsthand and be encouraged to adopt a new best friend of their own. (part from cute-calendar.com)

The 2017 Take Your Dog to Work Day campaign supports the Pets for Patriot’s efforts to help veterans and military members adopt the most overlooked shelter pets.

The summer solstice occurs today, June 20th, the day that has the longest period of daylight – except in the polar regions. Though the summer solstice is an instant in time, the term is also colloquially used like midsummer.  Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied among cultures, but most have recognition of a sign of the fertility, involving holidays, festivals and rituals.
