National Working Parents Day

Today is a day to celebrate working parents -almost 60% of families have both parents work to provide for their families. Hats off to them.

MAYFLOWER DAY

Mayflower Day commemorates the day the ship set sail from Plymouth, England in 1620.

On September 16 of 1620, the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England with 102 souls on board. These colonists- men, women, children, some seeking fortune, some seeking religious freedom – were later known as pilgrims.

The colonists’ intended to land at Virginia. However, after 66 days at sea, storms and winds blew them off course. After spotting modern-day Cape Cod, the members of the Mayflower intended on exploring the mouth of the Hudson River. However, rough seas continued to plague the ship. They turned back and stayed at Cape Cod.

For the next few weeks, the Pilgrims explored Cape Cod and eventually settled on Plymouth for their plantation.

Glad they made it - even though most of them became Patriot fans.
