June was quite the month. It’s the start of the summer season, and we’ve been getting pretty lucky with weather, though I’m about ready for those mosquitoes to just go away, please… A lot happened this past month, so if you’ve just woken up from a long, Rumpelstiltskin like sleep, or maybe you’ve been in a coma or for the past month, or you’re simply caught up in a whirlwind of business and need to catch up, here’s what happened in June that you might have missed.
- Father’s Day –
Hope everyone called their Dad. If you didn’t it’s probably too late and you’ve likely lost the chance at ever repairing that relationship. If you did or you spent time with him on that special day, you’re probably doing alright.
- Jake Ryan gave away –
- Go Pens! –
The Stanley Cup playoffs wrapped up with the might Pittsburgh Penguins dream crushing the wily underdogs that were the San Jose Sharks. Syd the Kid adds another championship to his legacy and adds more fuel to the fire that he deserves to stand on the pantheon among the greatest to ever play the game. If I remember correctly, the winner of the Stanley Cup, in lieu of an actual cup got a brand new 2016 Dodge Charger. (Please do not fact check that)
- Euro 2016 –
One of the biggest events in sports got underway as the European Championships for Soccer got underway. It’s been an exciting few weeks, with plucky underdogs Iceland not only making it to the group stage but firmly smashing England in the round of 16 to advance to the final Eight.
- Four! –
Another year another fun-filled day at the Annual Yachimec Group Golf Tournament. There’s nothing quite like a day out on the links. It’s a great place to get to know the staff at the dealerships, and Bart Yachimec himself got a hole in one (fact check this).
- Fire aid –
This huge concert that featured a variety of amazing country and rock band… and Nickleback, was huge. A great turned managed to raise upwards of 2 million dollars that will go to help the victims of the tragic Fort Mac Murray fires that destroyed parts of that fine city. All in all, it was the perfect way to end the month of June. I’m just going to assume that nothing important happened on June 30th as this was written before June officially ended.
