Welcome June

June was most likely named for the Roman goddess Juno, patroness of marriage and the well-being of women. Another interpretation says that the name came from the Latin juvenis, “young people,” who were celebrated at this time.

JUNE CALENDAR

  • June 5 is World Environment Day, a day meant to raise environmental awareness across the globe.
  • June 14 is Flag Day (U.S.). Be sure to raise the flag! Learn about the U.S. Flag Code, which provides guidelines for displaying the American flag properly.
  • June 20 is the Summer Solstice which heralds the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s the day with the most hours of daylight, so enjoy! In the Southern Hemisphere, winter begins at this time.

    Le US Flag Code est impressionnant. Je ne sais pas s’il existe des règles similaires pour notre drapeau tricolore.
