jUNe Day: ‘Friendship Across Cultures at its Best’

By James Lomuscio

The colorful flags lining Westport’s Ruth Steinkraus Bridge flapped defiantly as the sun peaked through the morning rain, promising today would be a beautiful 52nd annual jUNe Day.

The flags representing the United Nations 193 member countries complemented the assembly of more than 200 U.N. members and their families who came together for breakfast at the Saugatuck Elementary School and then a day of summer fun in Westport.

jUNe day was established in 1965 by the late Westporter Ruth Steinkraus Cohen, founder of the U.N. Association (UNA) of Southwestern Connecticut—also known as the as the International Visitors Committee of CT—in observance of the signing of the U.N. charter on June 26, 1945.

On this day, U.N. staff, their families and representatives from other governments get a chance to experience hometown America outside of New York City, participating in a variety of sporting and recreational events, according to Bill Hass, regional UNA president.
