Today’s events for Monday, June 27 | Local News
This is Sunglasses day, so put on your most stylish pair (you can even wear them at night!) While sunglasses look cool, they also help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, making them more than just a fashion statement and “CSI: Miami” accessory.
June is milk month — and you only have a few days left to celebrate! Since we live in the Dairy State, it’s your patriotic duty to consume as much dairy as possible. Sure, you can pour skim milk over your breakfast cereal and enjoy plain Greek yogurt with fruit after lunch. But we prefer to celebrate Dairy Month in the most delicious way – and that means eating ice cream! And we’re pretty sure whipped cream is also a dairy product, so go ahead and make this sundae.
