New Hampshire Glad Day

In 2019, Governor Sunnunu signed a proclamation to declare the second Saturday of June as Pollyanna Day throughout the state.  Pollyanna admirers hope the optimism of the celebration will spread to other New Hampshire communities and that schools, libraries, and citizens will commemorate the day with appropriately glad ceremonies and activities.
