June 7th Is National Seersucker Day


Did you know Senator Bill Cassidy has declared June 7th National Seersucker Day?

Senator Bill Cassidy has declared June 7 as the day to celebrate the seersucker fabric made popular in New Orleans in the early 1900s, and he plans to have an official senate photograph.

Our president and CEO, Steve Webb rocked the iconic suit to show his support.

This has been a tradition on Capitol Hill since the 1990s, when former U.S. Senator Trent Lott brought Seersucker Thursday to Congress in 1996. After the tradition went unobserved in 2012 and 2013, Cassidy brought back National Seersucker Day in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014 and has continued the tradition in the Senate with the help of Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California.

Neighbors is proud to support this wonderful tradition!
