June is “National Great Outdoors Month” in the United States. It was started in 1998 to draw people to the national parks and local parks. Visiting the outdoors is good for the soul. It offers a great release from the pressures of everyday life. Best of all, many aspects of it are free. How can you focus on this activity?

  • Volunteer at a summer camp for kids.
  • Go boating.
  • Walk in the woods.
  • Take pictures of sunsets and post them on your social media outlet.
  • Go biking, running, or walking on a local trail.
  • Run with your baby.
  • Get out of town and take a drive in the country.

No matter where you go, don’t leave home without your Maglite Flashlights. They can save your life if you get lost, or get caught after sunset in an unfamiliar place.

How to volunteer:

  • Pick an area that you love. Is it cooking, gardening, driving, painting, performing music, singing, fishing, meeting new people?
  • Find a way to combine your area of love to an area of need. You may find it in government, churches, local volunteer organizations.
  • Governments need people to volunteer on commissions, like the Shade Tree Commission, Parks, Civil Service, Utilities, and zoning.
  • Churches offer many ways to use your talents. Singing in the choir, playing your instrument, cooking, delivering, and taking people grocery shopping.
  • Your local civic clubs, like Rotary, Kiwanis, and Lions offer many ways to share your abilities.

How to honor the volunteers:

  • If you have been the recipient of the generosity of volunteers, you can simply thank them.
  • Or you can contact the mayor of your city, and ask if he would be willing to write a proclamation to call attention to those volunteers. Then call the newspaper and have them take a picture in his office of the group of people.
  • Give gifts, like Maglite flashlights to the volunteers in your favorite group. You can choose a government group, church group, or civic group. Again, you can call the newspaper, TV stations, and mayor to get involved in the appreciation ceremony. People like to read stories like this in the newspapers, and watch them on TV.

Use Maglite Flashlights to Celebrate Diwali (Celebrate What?)

Diwali is a special 5 day holiday observed in India, Australia, UK, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia. It is also called the “Festival of Lights”. It represents the spiritual victory of good over evil; knowledge over ignorance.

If you like the excitement of the 4th of July and the blessedness of Christmas, you can appreciate the feeling of the people who celebrate Diwali every year. It started about 2500 years ago as a religious holiday for Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains, and is now the biggest national holiday in India.

How is this holiday celebrated? Each of the 5 days is different. The activities involve shopping for gold, cleaning house, and  using sand to create “rangoli” patterns on the floor with colored sand. Also they pray, enjoy fireworks, visit, exchange gifts, and best of all, they feast!

It also sounds like the perfect time to use your Maglite Flashlights to light up the night after the fireworks, and when visiting your relatives and friends.

In 2021, the first day of Diwali is November 2, and the main day is November 4 (the new moon).

Happy Diwali!

Here are the future dates. It appears to change every year, because it is determined by the Indian calendar, which is tied to the cycles of the moon. The main day of the holiday is on the new moon:
