Birthdays and Anniversaries for September 4, 2014 + National Newspaper Carrier Day
You'll find out who made our list of listeners celebrating on this 4th day of September, in a moment, but right now: Extra! Extra! Read All About It!
It's National Newspaper Carrier Day!
This day celebrates the hiring of the very first newspaper carrier, 10 year old Barney Flaherty, in 1833. He was hired by Benjamin Day, publisher of The New York Sun, to sell papers. The 10 year old only had to prove that could throw a newspaper into the bushes.
This day honors everyone who is now, or has ever been a newspaper carrier. It's a long list, perhaps thousands, if not millions, of folks. Some very famous names include: Martin Luther King Jr., former President Ronald Reagan, Warren Buffet and even, John Wayne.
These days, very few youngsters deliver papers. The job has been taken over by adults who throw the papers from their cars.
Why not show your newspaper carrier some appreciation today by giving them a box of candy, a card, or just a nice "thank you", for a job well done.
