July is Anti-Boredom Month
Finding creative and healthy ways to beat boredom will improve our everyday lives. Once we’ve identified your causes, approach boredom with a set of positive challenges to keep boredom away.
- Play – Board games are an excellent way to fight boredom.
- Get physical – Exercise not only provides stimuli but also helps change the scenery and improve health.
- Learn – Visit a museum virtually, read a book or take a class (virtually).
- Clean -Tackling a cluttered cupboard, closet or even garage brings about a bit of satisfaction for a job well done.
- Cook – Making in your own kitchen with ingredients you enjoy gives us two ways to be satisfied.
- Be creative – Even if you usually don’t create, just trying can help break the boredom cycle.
- Volunteer – Helping someone who needs something more than you often makes us think about why we were bored in the first place.
- Get social – Visit a friend or neighbor (social distancing and mask, of course).
July 20 is National Lollipop Day
George Smith, owner of Bradley Smith Company, invented and patented the Lollipop in 1908. Legend has it, that George named the Lollipop after his favorite racehorse “Lolly Pop”.
The Racine Confectioner’s Machinery Company claims to have created National Lollipop Day.
There is a little controversy as to who first created the automated Lollipop machine. The Racine Confectioner’s Machinery Company claims to be the first to create a machine to automatically make Lollipops. Their machine made 40 lollipops at a time. Sam Born of California also claims to have created the first automated lollipop machine, in 1916. It was called the “Born Sucker Machine”.

July is here. This means four months has passed since California declared a state of emergency due to coronavirus (COVID-19). So many different parts of our lives, and the lives of those we work with and serve, has been impacted not only by the pandemic, but the ongoing social justice issues occurring right now. What is going on with the communities that KYCC serves? For this, we will explore some data.
Hope you continue to stay healthy and safe! Wash your hands 20 seconds (singing “Happy Birthday” two times), wear a mask, and avoid close contact when outside (social distance by staying at least 6 feet apart) (CDC).
