June Events Calendar (2011)


A time to celebrate life. June 5 is National Cancer Survivors Day. If you have been touched by cancer you know that each day is one to celebrate the ups, downs and complexities of life.

Monthly Events

Caribbean American Heritage Month
. Since the 1500s, the American continent has had a close relationship with the Caribbean islands (Alexander Hamilton was a Caribbean immigrant, along with many others over the years). For more information visit http://www.caribbeanamericanmonth.org/the_cahm_bill

Gay and Lesbian Pride Month. In commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village, which launched the modern movement for greater tolerance of gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual people in the United States, Gay and Lesbian Pride Month recognizes the impact that members of the GLBT community have had on the world. For more information visit http://www.nwhp.org/news/gayandlesbian_month.php

National Aphasia Awareness Month. Aphasia is a communication disorder that impairs a person’s ability to speak, understand others, and process language. It affects up to 1 million Americans, leaving them isolated, frustrated, and depressed. Aphasia can result from stroke, a head injury, a brain tumor, or other neurological causes. Most common among older people, it can occur in people of all ages. For more information visit http://www.aphasia.org/

National Candy Month. Don’t go overboard for the whole month, but don’t deny your sweet tooth a little enjoyment in June. The best practice for good nutrition is to eat a healthy variety of foods each day and exercise regularly. That should leave room for the occasional chocolate bar or cookie in your diet.

Weekly Events


National Fishing and Boating Week, June 4-12
. Head out to the water for this national celebration of fishing and boating coordinated by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (scheduled for most states’ free fishing days, which allow the public to fish without a license). For more information visit http://www.fws.gov/refuges/mediatipsheet/Stories/201105_NationalFishingBoatingWeek.html

National Tire Safety Week, June 5-11. More than 900 million tires travel U.S. roads on cars and light trucks every year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 600 deaths every year are caused by underinflated tires, and it recommends a visual inspection and pressure check of all tires once a month and before every long trip. More than something to celebrate, tire safety can save a life. For more information visit http://www.rma.org/index.cfm

Men’s Health Week, June 13-19. Men’s health is a family issue. Men’s Health Week is intended to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. For more information visit http://www.menshealthmonth.org/week/index.html.

Daily Events

National Cancer Survivors Day, June 5
