Answers under Public Notices in the Classifieds section. There are certainly some intriguing days to celebrate on our calendar. Here are some we found interesting. 1. Saturday, August 22 – BE AN ANGEL DAY. Be An Angel Day is all about making the world a better place through acts of kindness, care and support. Put others before yourself and reach out to help those in need. If you’re the one benefiting from someone else’s act of kindness, make sure you let them know you appreciate it. 2. Tuesday, August 25 – KISS AND MAKE UP DAY. We all have fights with our nearest and dearest now and again. Whether a sibling dispute, a marital tiff, a spat with a best friend or a clash with the parents; whether it’s about a lie, a misunderstanding, relationships or the state of the kitchen, today it’s time to kiss and make up. Sometimes a grudge gets held too long or we allow the little things that irritate us in a relationship to become bigger than they really are. 3. Wednesday, August 26 – WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY. Women’s Equality Day commemorates August 26, 1920 when votes to women officially became part of the US constitution. This day marks a turning point in the history of the struggle for equal treatment of women and women’s rights.In 1920, the day stood for the result of 72 years of campaigning by a huge civil rights movement for women.
