August was named in honor of Augustus Caesar. It has 31 days because Augustus wanted as many days as Julius Caesar’s month of July had. (They took that extra day from February) Previously names Sextilis in Latin, it was the sixth month of the Roman calendar.
Birthstone: Peridot
Flower: Gladiolus and Poppy
August is also related to the work “auger”, a hole digging tool, because farmers dug for next season at this time every year.

The YMCA camp in Lake Nebagamon is celebrating 100 years this summer. Did you enjoy this camp as a child, or know anyone that was able to be a part of the great opportunity they have had over the years? Make a plan to come and take a stroll through the camp and enjoy dinner and reminiscing past history.
