Here I go celebrating another holiday! I can’t help it. Each month presents an array of official and unofficial opportunities to learn more about a culture, bring attention to a concern we could all work together and solve, or just enjoy life! June is no different. This month is a great time to celebrate the adoption of our flag, the diversity of our population, the importance of fathers, and the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice! The Summer Solstice occurs around June 21 st here in the US and is sometimes referred to as “Midsummer”. Formal celebrations include festivals across the United States, such as the Midsummer’s Festival in Lindsborg, which features a Kubb Tournament among other family favorites.
The Olympic spirit is coming to Wichita with a free screening event of the documentary Age of Champions! The film is being sponsored by AARP Kansas and the Wichita Area Retired School Personnel.
Recently, my spouse d eveloped physical challenges that made him unable to perform some of his own personal care. We were quite concerned, for a time, that the incapacitation was caused by a systemic and degenerative condition and were very relieved to realize that the cause of his disability is localized and, hopefully, can be repaired with surgery.
