Is There A Dr. In The House
Today, Wednesday, March 30th, is "National Doctors Day," & a day set aside to officially celebrate YOUR doctor! Why not consider thanking your doc and/or the docs at our local ER's for all they do. National Doctors' Day is held every year at this time to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve our country by caring for its citizens. The 1st Doctors' Day observance was March 30th, back in 1933 down in Winder, Georgia. Eudora Brown Almond, the good wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. The 1st observance included mailing of greeting cards & placing of flowers on graves of deceased doctors. On March 30, 1958, a resolution commemorating Doctors' Day was adopted by the United States House of Representatives. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House & Senate to establish a National Doctors' Day. Following overwhelming approval by the United States Senate & the House of Representatives, on October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed S.J. Res. #366 (which became Public Law 101-473) designating March 30th as National Doctors' Day. I suggest taking YOUR doctor to lunch today, & if you can't do that, invite the doc for an afternoon of golf on the greens out at Marias Valley.
