National Professional House Cleaners Day - September 17

 

NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL HOUSE CLEANERS DAY

National Professional House Cleaners Day on September 17th recognizes Professional Cleaners for the necessary and skillful trade they provide every day. In homes and business across the country, Professional Cleaners create healthier environments.

This recognition day celebrates a career many may overlook or take for granted. While not everyone hires a Professional Cleaner, in some way, they do impact our lives. Nearly every business we frequent, and apartment building rented, utilizes professional cleaners. Economically, the industry employs approximately 3.25 million people creating a positive impact on the marketplace.

Benefits of Hiring Professional Cleaners

Besides cleaning homes and businesses, Professional House Cleaners offer so much more. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved air quality – Regular professional cleaning reduces the build-up of dust. In older homes, exposure to allergins, lead, and asbestos fibers increase. A regular schedule of professional cleaning removes those contaminants from the air.
  • Longevity – Regular care of furniture, drapes, floors, and homes extends their life. Over time, items look newer longer and need replacing less often. These savings add up.
  • Time – Profession Cleaners free up time for family, friends, and investing in the essential things of life.
  • Health – Getting a sanitary clean in places like the kitchen and bathroom is essential. Not only do Professional Cleaners know how to achieve a hygienic clean, but they also use the right tools for the job.
  • Relaxation – Psychologically, coming home to a clean enables us to relax. We don’t face clutter. Everything is in its place.

Exceptionally Skilled

National Professional House Cleaners Day also praises the skills and knowledge of the people. Those in the industry have a passion for perfection, and here’s why:

  • Detail-oriented/well organized – A Professional Cleaner’s eye for detail and organizational skills make them ideal for this career. Their no-nonsense approach and thoroughness leave satisfied customers behind. Besides, how else do you get a house clean?
  • Experts – Professional Cleaners are experts when it comes to protecting, cleaning, and restoring fabrics and surfaces. Not only that, but they’re also the experts when it comes to protecting you and their employees. Doing the job right without injury to an employee, and maintaining a safe home is essential.
  • Leading the way – Many Professional Cleaners run their businesses. They employ specialists, balance product, schedules, and training. These business owners set a standard for their employees who in turn become leaders, too.
  • Efficient – When it comes to getting a job done right and quickly, Professional Cleaners mastered efficiency generations ago. Not only do they know the most effective ways, but the most cost-effective and healthiest ways to get a home or business clean. As a result, they’re also the businesses you can trust.

According to the United States Department of Commerce in the next few years, 8 out of every 10 dual-income households will invest in a form of house cleaning services. The day presents an excellent opportunity to acknowledge the stellar services and value Professional Cleaners provide.

NATIONAL IT PROFESSIONALS DAY – Third Tuesday in September (1)

NATIONAL IT PROFESSIONALS DAY

Annually on the third Tuesday in September, National IT Professionals Day honors the venerable geeks of the world we all rely on to keep us connected.

The IT (information technology) professional is the unsung hero of modern business, but often under-appreciated by it.  Whether it be desktops, laptops, mobile devices, applications, servers, networks, databases or cybersecurity, IT professionals keep business humming.  However, there is often a lack of understanding by business leaders and end-users of the important role they play and the difficulties and complexities associated with modern IT.

HOW TO OBSERVE #ITProDay

If you’re an end-user, simply say thank you to the IT professionals that make your life easier.  Also, share #ITProDay on Social Media to increase awareness of just how important our IT professionals are.

If you’re a business leader, in addition to saying thank you, also recognize and seek out the unique insight your IT professionals can provide in today’s always-on, always-connected world to help you make smart strategic business decisions that will lead to greater competitive advantage.

CONSTITUTION DAY AND CITIZENSHIP DAY – September 17

CONSTITUTION DAY AND CITIZENSHIP DAY

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is an American federal observance that commemorates the adoption of the Constitution of the United States and those who have become United States citizens.  This day is observed each year on September 17. On this day members of the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.

Constitutional Convention 

While many contributed to crafting the document known today as the U.S. Constitution, James Madison wrote the draft forming the basis for the Constitution. Those who participated in its development gathered in Independence Hall in Philadelphia that sultry summer of 1787. George Washington presided over the Convention. But many “Founding Fathers” attended to other diplomatic duties, unable to participate. Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, served overseas on behalf of his country. John Adams also served abroad. However, Patrick Henry refused to attend due to principle and preferring the Articles of Confederation. He was eventually swayed when convention leaders added a Bill of Rights.

The convention lasted from May 25 to September 17, 1787. During that time, the 55 delegates debated the duties of the government, checks, and balances, and the rights and freedoms of the people. They divided the government into three branches: the legislative branch to make the laws; the executive to execute the laws, and the judicial to interpret the laws.

The delegates suffered through rough weather, heat, and illness. Despite the conditions, the formed a Bill of Rights enumerating rights and freedoms of the people.

Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and George Washington all signed the Constitution.

On December 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution. So the process began, obtaining each state’s approval. Rhode Island didn’t send any delegates to the Constitutional Convention. Their headstrong character did not appreciate a powerful government and held tight to their independence as long as they could. As a result, they were the last state to ratify the Constitution on May 29, 1790.

Citizenship

Under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, citizenship is defined as “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Secretary of State William Seward proclaimed the amendment ratified on July 28, 1868.

While the 14th Amendment was the first step in a long line of amendments defining citizens and their rights, it took decades to enforce some of those rights.

For example, one of a citizen’s most valued powers is the power to vote. The 15th and 19th Amendments define those rights for blacks and women. However, it wasn’t until 1924 that all Native Americans were granted citizenship. Through the Indian Citizenship Act, many Native Americans were allowed to vote for the first time. Still, this legislation did not stop some states from preventing some from voting.

CONSTITUTION DAY HISTORY

This holiday dates all the way back to 1911 when schools in Iowa first recognized Constitution Day.  Then in 1917, the society known as the Sons of the American Revolution formed a committee to promote Constitution Day. Members of that committee included Calvin Coolidge, John D. Rockefeller, and General John Pershing.

In 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared “I am an American Day,” and Congress designated the third Sunday in May to celebrate it.  By 1949, the governors of all 48 states had issued Constitution Day proclamations.  On February 29, 1952, Congress changed the name from “I am an American Day” to “Citizenship Day” and moved its observation to September 17.  In 2004, the day was renamed Constitution Day and Citizenship Day.

National Apple Dumpling Day - September 17

 

NATIONAL APPLE DUMPLING DAY

National Apple Dumpling Day on September 17th honors a sweet delight of Autumn.
With fall fast approaching, this food holiday comes at the height of apple harvests. Peeled and cored apples are typically placed on a pastry. Then, cinnamon and sugar are sprinkled over the top. The dough is folded around the apple creating a dumpling and baked until tender. The flavor is similar to an apple pie. 

Apple dumplings are believed to be native to the northeastern United States, around Pennsylvania.  Often found among the delicious Amish recipes, it is frequently eaten as a breakfast item. However, they are also regularly eaten as a dessert and sometimes served with ice cream.

Not only do these pastry taste and smell like fall, but they look like it, too. First, the bright apples in their many colors come into our kitchens by the baskets and boxes full. Then we season them with warm-colored spices. Finally, when the pastry comes out of the oven filling our home with that delicious fragrance, it presents us with a gorgeous golden crust.

NATIONAL MONTE CRISTO DAY – September 17

NATIONAL MONTE CRISTO DAY

On September 17th, National Monte Cristo Day recognizes the indulgent and delicious sandwich.  

A Monte Cristo is a fried ham and cheese sandwich. The French sandwich called the croque-monsieur inspired the Monte Cristo. However, the sandwich goes by other names, too. If you find a menu with French Sandwich, Toasted Ham Sandwich, and French Toasted Cheese Sandwich order them for a taste of Monte Cristo.

While the Monte Cristo is typically a savory sandwich, sometimes powdered sugar and jam preserves sweeten it, too. To achieve the crispy outer coating, chefs dip the prepared sandwich in an egg batter. Then they either pan-fry or deep-fry the sandwich to perfection.

Occasionally, variations include sliced turkey and different types of cheese. Other options for serving are available, too. For example, some like to serve a grilled version. Another version may be served open-faced and heated under a grill or broiler. 

HOW TO OBSERVE #MonteCristoDay

Invite a friend or family member to join you for a Monte Cristo. Savor the delicious sandwich as an indulgent celebration and share a photo of your meal, too! Be sure to share using #MonteCristoDay or #Bennigans on social media.
