ABOUT ECHO SCARFS
Edgar and Theresa Hyman founded Echo Scarfs on their wedding day in 1923. They went to City Hall to get their marriage license and decided to incorporate their business while they were there. Soon after, they set up shop in the heart of New York City, capturing its vibrancy in the gorgeous colors, patterns, and textures of their scarfs.
Over the years, Echo has established itself as the destination for beautifully made, fashion-forward scarfs. Today, Echo is a global brand with products in multiple categories sold in department and specialty stores throughout the world in North America, Japan, Europe, and the UK, as well as on our website echonewyork.com.

Today, the rich heritage of timeless quality, unparalleled craftsmanship and fashion sensibility lives on in every new category. Still located within a block of the original showroom, Echo continues to draw inspiration from the vitality and diversity of the city.
One family – four generations. And to think, it all started with a scarf and a wedding. Now that’s the power of a scarf!

NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILK DAY
Across the country, folks enjoy a tall, frosty glass on National Chocolate Milk Day which is observed annually on September 27.
Invented by Hans Sloane in the late 1680s, today chocolate milk can be purchased premixed or it can be made at home with either cocoa powder and a sweetener or with melted chocolate, chocolate syrup or chocolate milk mix.
While Sloane was in Jamaica, he encountered a beverage the locals drank made with cocoa mixed with water. After trying it, he reported the flavor to be nauseating. After some experimentation, Sloane found a way to mix the cocoa with milk to make it more pleasant tasting. He brought the chocolate recipe back with him upon his return to England. Now people enjoy this delicious drink every day.

NATIONAL CORNED BEEF HASH DAY
National Corned Beef Hash Day is observed annually on September 27.
The Hormel Company claims it introduced corned beef hash and roast beef hash to the United States as early as 1950. However, “hash” of many forms has been part of the American diet since at least the 19th century, as is attested to by the availability of numerous recipes and the existence of many “hash houses” named after the dish.
