There are many occasions to celebrate in June. You can eat a Snow cone on the first real day of summer- June 20, marvel at how I’ve aged in 6 months on my half birthday- June 22, and prep your patriotism for the Fouth of July by observing Flag Day on June 14. But wait, there’s more!
June is also a great month for giving back. Several of our charities are hosting benefits to raise money for such varied groups as, teenage mothers, children with hearing impairments, children’s theatre, and under-employed workers.
