A Fun Fact for October 23

While working and preparing for the upcoming book sale we discovered a fun fact for the day. So, from our random findings as a gift to you. 

On this day it is said, and often happens, that the swallows of San Juan Capistrano Mission in California arrive each May 19th and depart for the winter each year on October 23. The departure date is the anniversary of the death of St. John- San Juan- of Capistrano after whom the mission is named.
