April Holidays and Observances
Thursday, April 1st, is April Fools' Day,
also known as All Fools Day. April Fools' Day is a day known for playing practical jokes on your family, friends, and coworkers. It is not a national holiday, but is well known in Canada, Europe, Australia, Brazil and the United States.
falls on Sunday, April 4th, this year. Fun Fact: The earliest Easter can fall is March 22 which occurred in 1818 but will not occur again in the 21st century. The latest date is April 25 and will not occur until 2038.
We celebrate Earth Day
on April 22nd! Earth Day was first observed on April 22, 1970, at a time when concern for the environment was just emerging as a public issue. More than twenty million Americans took to the streets to demonstrate their concern for the environment, making it the largest demonstration in the nation's history.
Don't Forget About Our Recipe Contest!
Spending time together is what most families treasure.
It can be as simple as just sitting on the porch enjoying each others company. This year, we are taking that idea and going one step further for our recipe contest - "Supper on the Porch." It can be an appetizer, entree, side dish, dessert, or even your favorite beverage - best enjoyed when sitting on the porch. Our winner will receive a grand prize of $500.00!
Please remember, one recipe per reader – more than one, will disqualify all. We also ask when you send in your entry, make sure you include measurements with your ingredients as well as complete instructions on making that favorite recipe. Be sure and write clearly – if we can’t read it, we can’t test it. Originality counts – no recipes from a published cookbook or internet website, please.
The deadline for entries is midnight May 1, 2021.
The grand champion will be notified by July 1, 2021.
