Many administrative professionals today are seeking special treatment or at least aknowledgement for their hard work, as today is National Administrative Professionals Day. Buy them a coffee, give them a cookie or some flowers and let your closest administrative professional know that they are appreciated.
On this day: Today in 1607 the first English colony in America landed at Cape Henry in Virginia. The site where they landed was said to have been marked with a wooden cross upon their arrival. Today, the Cape Henry Memorial stands as part of Colonial National Historical Park in Virginia to remind visitors of the significance of the location.
