  Coffee to Kick-off National Nurses Day!  

On May 6, 1982, the American Association of Nurses (ANA) formally acknowldged this date as "National Nurses Day." This affirmed a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress that designated May 6th as "National Recognition Day for Nurses." That same year, then-President Reagan proclaimed this recognition as well. Realizing a single day was not enough to celebrate these wonderful health care providers, the ANA expanded this recognition such that a week-long celebration of nurses was to be held annually from May 6th through May 12th. A much more detailed history and timeline of "National Nurses Day" and "National Nurses Week" has been compiled by the ANA, and can be found here.

With today kicking-off this special week, raise your cup of coffee in salute to our nurses! And give that nurse a second cheers if s/he is also a geocacher! smiley

 

Thanks to all previous and future Coffee Crew Event hosts who keep this weekly event on our calendars - you are awesome! Event details are below.

Where: In a parking lot! In front of a deli! If it is raining, we may be inside the deli!

When: Mondays, 5:45AM-6:30AM (except for federal holidays).

It's really a good way to start your week off - the Monday Morning Coffee Crew has been doing this since 2018, for over 5 years. You can do it too!
