My Oh My, It Is Already JULY!

July graphic of a calendar page with red, white and blue ribbons on each side and fireworksJuly is the national month for celebrating grilling, picnics, hotdogs, baked beans, pickles, blueberries, and ice cream. It is also called National Culinary Arts Month and Lasagna Awareness Month. While wearing their masks many people get out and eat outside together so it is also called Sandwich Generation Month. Since so many people gather during the month of July it is also called Family Reunion Month.  Without a doubt, it is a great time to enjoy nature and consequently, we call July National Park and Recreation Month and we also call July Wild About Wildlife Month.
