This month holds America’s birthday. And while we celebrate our nation’s independence, we would like you to reflect on what independence means to our community members and what you can do to help them achieve as much independence as possible. Read more in our Montessori section to find out what we do here to help those we see every day. Also, we haven’t forgotten…
International Joke Day – July 1st
Did you know that laughing can actually be good for your health? If you read our newsletter and blog, you probably do! On this International Joke day – tell a joke, listen to a joke, and laugh at a joke to raise your spirits. So make yourself or someone else smile today!
Independence Day – July 4th
Today is our nation’s day of independence! It’s our birthday and a celebration of everything we are and all that we hope to one day become. While it’s easy to get wrapped up in good food, good music, and good times, it’s important to remember to take a moment to reflect on what freedom and independence are, what it means to you, and how lucky we are to have the rights we do.
Bastille Day – July 14th
Why let America have all the fun!? We call it Bastille Day, but it is actually called “Fete Nationale” in France. This holiday celebrates the storming of the Bastille and subsequent victory over the royalty in the French Revolution. Not only is it celebrated in France, but all over the world. Not only for French people across continents but for those impacted by this victory for the everyday man and woman. Vive la France!
World Listening Day – July 18th
We mentioned this celebration in our newsletter last year but wanted to let you know again that today is a great day to listen to your favorite tunes. Listening to music is so much fun and can be very good for your health. In addition, it can brighten your mood and engages your mind while you do something relaxing and enjoyable. So while this is a fun day to celebrate, don’t be afraid to listen to music every day!
Gorgeous Grandma Day – July 23rd
So this is a fun one! When we heard about this commemoration, we knew we had to include it. Why? Because we have so many Gorgeous Grandmas at Arbor Springs! This day feels as if it was made for our community. So get your gorgeous on today…even if you’re not technically a grandma!
Family Reunion Month
This month celebrates, commemorates, and encourages Family Reunions. While these are normally a common and standard thing, given the COVID-19 crisis and all the precautions that followed, now seems a perfect time to recognize this important month of community and family connection.
