Ray Kroc's Birthday
- Founder Of McDonalds. Raymond Albert Kroc was born on October 5, 1902, in Oak Park, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. Kroc's first leap into business was with a lemonade stand he ran while he was in grammar school. His next business venture was running a music store that he opened with two friends after his freshman year in high school.

Country Inn, Bed and Breakfast Day
- celebrates the industry's unique style of lodging. Unlike chain hotels, each bed and breakfast and inn has its own personality and is quite different from the next. Some are regal and manor-like, while others are kitschy and funky — and there's every style in between.

World Teacher's Day
- This day honors those hard working, patient and understanding people whom we entrust our children to. Teachers mold our kids in a positive direction, and affect who they are and who they become. From Kindergarten through college, teachers are an important part of our children's lives.

National Depression Screening Day

National Apple Betty Day
