June is the sixth month of the year according to the Gregorian calendar,
which is used in almost all the world today. Some authorities believe the Romans
named the month for Juno, the patron goddess of marriage.
Is that why so many couples choose the month of June for their marriage?
Spring ends and summer begins on June 20, 21, or 22 in the Northern Hemisphere.
Trees and shrubs are often at their freshest,
and there are more flowers during June than at any other time.
Special Occasions in June
Flag Day is observed in the United States on June 14.
It commemorates the day in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted
the Stars and Stripes as our flag. It then had only 13 stars, to match its 13 stripes.
Father’s Day is the day when the people of many countries express gratitude and
appreciation for their fathers by giving them gifts or greeting cards. In the United
States and Canada, Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday in June.
On the Summer Solstice, which occurs on June 21,
the Sun is at its highest path through the sky and the day is the longest.
The special flower for June is the rose.

Clay Aiken In June
Clay started recording his first album in June, 2003.
He has never been on Tour in June.
UNICEF Ambassador Clay Aiken was in Somalia at the end of June in 2008.
He met lots of children and learned about the catastrophic conditions
under which they struggle to survive every day.
Clay Aiken has done many things in the month of June. One of my favorites events in June was Clay’s appearance on Good Morning America on June 1st, 2010. Clay was there to promote his new CD, Tried & True.
Clay had a great chat with Robin Roberts. It was rather short, but very positive and covered many topics. When asked about his son, Parker, Clay answered that he was learning to live with less sleep…then he quickly changed the subject.
Clay was accompanied to the studio by his publicist, Cindi Berger and David Novak who worked with Clay on the album Tried & True.
Joined by a small band, Clay performed Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.
What are your plans for June?
