Many Notes ...

One Harmony

Children Observances

While considering what kind of observance to create through Chase's Calendar of Events, I came across many observances already in place for 2006 that are about kids, or people who work with kids. Here is a list of as many as I could find in one sitting - I'm sure there are others as well, like at the state and local levels. (Please let me know of other events I can add to this list - Thanks!) Perhaps one of these will be an opportunity for you to sponsor an event to "Make Children Top Priority" ...
