[January 2022] NATIONAL BLOOD DONOR MONTH


The month of January is usually a period of critical blood shortages. People stop donating blood during the holidays and when they get sick during cold and flu season. Blood drives also get snowed out during the winter months. More than 50 years ago — on December 31, 1969 — President Richard Nixon of the United States signed a proclamation designating January as National Blood Donor Month (NBDM). The new monthly observance was meant to honor voluntary blood donors and to encourage more people to give blood at a time when more blood is needed. Find a Drive...




[February 21, 2022] PRESIDENTS' DAY


Presidents' Day is celebrated every year on the third Monday of February — February 21 this year. All the presidents in American history are remembered and honored for their exemplary work in making America the great country it is today. After the death of George Washington in 1799, his birthday was unofficially celebrated as a day of remembrance called Washington Day. Throughout the 1800s, people used this day to honor the man that shaped America and the legacy he left. In 1832, a resolution permitted the removal and internment of George Washington’s body in the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. and the erection of the Washington Monument in 1848 caused more celebrations nationwide. It wasn’t until the late 1870s that Steven Wallace Dorsey proposed that Washington’s birthday should become a national federal holiday. President Rutherford B. Hayes signed it into law in 1879 and joined the four existing bank holidays that were previously approved in 1870. Because of Abraham Lincoln’s legacy and the proximity of his birthday on February 12, it was proposed that Washington Day should become Presidents’ Day to celebrate both men, but that idea was rejected by Congress. Washington’s Birthday didn’t officially become Presidents’ Day until the late 1960s. Senator Robert McClory of Illinois concocted a plan that moved key bank holidays to Mondays to increase the number of three-day weekends for workers in what’s known as the Uniform Monday’s Act. The hope was that it would increase productivity and decrease employee absenteeism. Unsurprisingly, the labor union agreed with this idea and so did the private sector. In 1971, Richard M. Nixon made the executive order to pass the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which shifted Washington’s Birthday, Columbus Day, Memorial Day, and Veterans’ Day to Monday. With the date landing in the middle of Lincoln’s and Washington’s birthday, it became known as Presidents’ Day, while having a simultaneous benefit for retail stores as they advertised their special sales events during this time. By the mid-1980s, Presidents’ Day became the common term and continues to be called as such to this day.

[March 13, 2022] NATIONAL K9 VETERANS DAY


Did you know that there are more than 2,500 dogs serving in the military and about 700 deployed overseas? What’s hard to know is just how many military and war dogs have served over the years, from World War II on, when the US Army K-9 Corps was formed. Even so, we do know that these military dogs have saved thousands of lives. So it’s only fitting that war dogs get their own holiday. That holiday is National K-9 Veterans Day on March 13. It is celebrated on the same day the US Army K-9 Corps was founded. Joseph White, a retired military working dog trainer, originated the idea for the day. Read more...
