Recognizes the first pork food invented in America. Scrapple is a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal, wheat flour, and spices formed into a semi-solid loaf, sliced and pan-fried. Scrapple’s history in the United States comes from German settlers of the 17th and 18th centuries. The origin of its discovery is strongly associated with rural areas surrounding Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, eastern Virginia, and the Delmarva Peninsula.

Microtia Awareness Day

Microtia occurs when the ear or ears do not fully develop during the 1st trimester of pregnancy. Those born with Microtia face hearing loss, facial challenges, and the longing for social acceptance.

Approximately one child in every 9,000 is born with Microtia. While Microtia is diagnosed at birth, there is no understanding of why Microtia occurs.

In 1803, Louisiana became the first territory to be carved out of the Louisiana Purchase and became a state of The United States of America in 1812. Louisiana is best known for such treasures as Jazz music, Creole and of course, Mardi Gras.
