International Frugal Fun Day is the First Saturday in October. Frugal Fun Day is celebrated every year on the first Saturday in October. On that day, do one really fun thing that costs $5 or less--free is even better!
The first Frugal Fun Day was celebrated on October 2, 1999 and has been observed on the first Saturday in October every year after. Through Frugal Fun Day, Horowitz encouraged people to take one day to participate in activities that cost under $5 per person.
Physician Assistant Day, or PA Day, is a celebration of those who assist doctors in their work. This important event, begun by the American Academy of Physicians’ Assistants, aims to raise awareness of the PA profession, and inform people about healthy living.
The profession of Physician's Assistant was created in 1965 by Dr. Eugene Stead at Duke Medical Center. The first physician assistants graduated from Duke University on October 6, 1967. Since then, this job has grown to tens of thousands of people.
Before it was a weeklong event, National PA Day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program. October 6 is also the birthday of the profession's founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD. Now the profession is 50 years strong!
