Making May More Memorable then Ever
The merry month of May celebrates spring in full swing and Adeline’s Sea Moose and crew are ready to make Mother’s Day and a host of other days for celebration and remembrance more memorable than ever for you, your family and friends. And, we haven’t forgotten about those special days for employers to recognize their employees.
May 10 National Receptionists Day is the day we recognize all of the things that receptionists bring to our organizations. It is dedicated to showing them our appreciation for their professional services, charisma, and contribution to the company’s culture. Join us on the second Wednesday in May, as we show them how much they mean to us.
May 12 Mother’s Day In 1961, the Peace Corps adopted the slogan “The toughest job you’ll ever love.” No offense, Peace Corps, but that adage is more appropriate for motherhood — a job that is ever-changing and frequently exasperating. Moms don’t get days off, nor do they receive handsome salaries or generous pensions. Instead, their rewards come in the form of sticky kisses, necklaces made of elbow macaroni, and the satisfaction of seeing their children grow up to be happy, healthy adults. That’s probably not adequate compensation—so give her an extra hug or twelve on Mother’s Day, just in case, and follow our guide to giving back to the woman who gave you life.
May 19 Armed Forces Day is a special holiday for people all over the world to come together and thank the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. First conceived by President Harry S. Truman, the holiday was established in 1949. The creation of a single day celebration for all five branches of the United States military made sense due to its recent unification under the Department of Defense. Today, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of every May. Be sure to mark your calendar & support our military!
May 24 National Brothers Day Robert Frost famously said, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in,” and that extends to wherever your brother’s home is.
May 27 Memorial Day (Memorial Day Weekend) For many Americans, Memorial Day (and Memorial weekend)evokes the smell of burgers on the grill and the image of summertime. But Memorial Day—which occurs on the last Monday in May in remembrance of those who died while serving in the armed forces—is a holiday steeped in somber American history. Originating after the American Civil War as “Decoration Day,” when the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers were decorated with flowers in both the North and South, by the 20th century Memorial Day had been unified to honor all Americans who died while serving in the military.
