Great Outdoors Month - The Great Outdoors Month (June), promotes outdoor recreation that is a pervasive force in America, enjoyed by nearly every one of us and providing mental, physical, economic and social benefits.  Recreation ranges from enjoyment of wildlife viewing to adventure sports like rock climbing and OHV driving and is a $250 billion per annum industry.  June is an especially active time for recreation in America, with millions of us commencing summertime activities and hundreds of annual events and meetings ranging from National Trails Day to National Boating and Fishing Week, National Family Recreation Week to National Clean Beaches Week.  Recognition of the value of recreation and the importance of June as a time of recreation activity prompted Presidential designation of June as Great Outdoors Month for the first time in 2004. In Las Vegas you may want to consider visiting the Valley of Fire, Lake Mead, Grand Canyon or the many other great out venues around the valley.

National Health Care Day of Service

This summer, Organizing for America will fight to ensure Americans receive much-needed health care reform in 2009. Community service is a critical piece of our health care campaign and our National Health Care Day of Service on June 27th, 2009 will highlight its importance. Why Service? Volunteers who participate in the National Health Care Day of Service will be stronger advocates for health care reform. Volunteer projects directly expose participants to the reality of our country’s health care system and the millions of people who it is currently failing. Visit here for more information.
