Brooke’s Notes – May 2024


The month of May is filled with exciting holidays! 

  • May 1st is celebrated as “May Day” in many countries, marking the beginning of Spring with festivals and dances. 
  • May 4th has been unofficially dubbed as “Star Wars Day” with the pun “May the Fourth be with you,” referencing the famous line “May the Force be with you” from Star Wars.
  • May 5th is Cinco de Mayo. Contrary to popular belief, it is not Mexico’s Independence Day but commemorates the Mexican Army’s 1862 victory over the French Empire.
  • Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday of May (don’t forget to mark your calendar).
  • Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday in May, honors the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country. This year, Memorial Day falls on May 27th

Additionally, May 11th holds special significance for me – it’s my parents’ anniversary! This year, they celebrate an incredible FORTY years of marriage. Wow! What a milestone. I recently came across a piece of wisdom: “Be kind to your parents; it’s their first time living a life, too.” It’s funny how we often see our parents as infallible role models, when in reality, they’re learning and growing just like us. Cheers to Keela and Teej on 40 years. It’s a true blessing to have parents that are not only still married, but are happily so, loving life together. I love you both so much! 

This month marks our final 2024 camp issue! Sending your child to summer camp can be one of the most rewarding experiences for both children and parents alike. From nurturing independence and resilience to creating lifelong memories and friendships, summer camps are invaluable. This issue has an array of fantastic local summer camp options for your little ones. 

Gracing our cover this month is the remarkable Dr. Anna Nichols! Dr. Nichols and her team at Nichols Hearing & Audiology are dedicated to providing life-changing, personalized care. Discover more about Nichols Hearing & Audiology
