Lyndon B Johnson sworn in as President after JFK assassinated – Nov. 22, 1963. Johnson was quickly sworn in as President on Air Force One in Dallas on November 22, 1963, just 2 hours and 8 minutes after John F. Kennedy was assassinated, amid suspicions of a conspiracy against the government. He was sworn in by U.S. District Judge Sarah T. Hughes, a family friend. In the rush, a Bible was not at hand, so Johnson took the oath of office using a Roman Catholic missal from President Kennedy's desk. Cecil Stoughton's iconic photograph of Johnson taking the presidential oath of office as Mrs. Kennedy looks on is the most famous photo ever taken aboard a presidential aircraft.

National Ice Cream Month/National Ice Cream Day established – 1984. The celebrations were originated in the Senate by Senator Walter Dee Huddleston of Kentucky on May 17, 1984 and in the House of Representatives by Representative Kika de la Garza of Texas on April 11, 1984. The resolution proclaimed the month of July 1984 as "National Ice Cream Month" and July 15, 1984, as "National Ice Cream Day". It was signed into public law by President Ronald Reagan on July 9, 1984 with Presidential Proclamation 5219.

Little known fact – This originated from a marketing promotion of the company – Dairymen, Inc. (Louisville, KY) which was a milk co-op for dairy farmers.  I worked for that company from 1979 until 1995 when they merged with another company. Our first National Ice Cream Day was celebrated by having an ice cream sundae bar set up in the backyard for all of the employees.
