National Steam Automobile Day
August 13, 2019 11:33AM
I've decided that maybe SACA should apply for to have a National Steam Automobile Day here in the U.S. This seems reasonable given many of the other days that are recognized. Sometimes a national day even gets the occasional odd mention on morning driveby radio or newspaper trivia pages.

The dates I've come up with, so far, are:

...…….EVENT...…………… DATE.................................OTHER COMMEMORATIONS
Oliver Evans Birthday.....September 13...…Celiac Disease......…..Uncle Sam......….....Yom Kippur
Stanley Bros. Birthday …….June 1.............Parents.............……...Milk......…...………...Reef Awareness...……..Nail Polish
Rollin White Birthday ……..June 11...……..Make Life Beautiful.....Call Your Doctor...…Children.....German Choc. Cake
Sylvester Roper ……......November 24...….Day before Thanksgiving…
Nicholas Cugnot…………. February 26...…Pistachio Nuts
Richard Trevithick......……...April 13............Functional Neurological Disorder...….Make Lunch Count …….Record Stores

Things to consider are how easily the day could be celebrated by steam car owners ... in most of the country, few will want to drive around in mid-winter. The day is less likely to get attention if overshadowed by other events, no one is going to notice if it's held on Christmas. You get the idea.

Look forward to more suggestions and comments.

Regards,

Ken

How about an actual new steam _automobile_ rather than some lip-service "observance" of old steam cars?

Just a thought...

And don't forget Sept 17th, "National Debate It Instead Of Do It Day". LOL
