November 7th is National Notary Public Day. This “Day” was created in 1974 and first celebrated in 1975 as a day to “recognize notaries for their public service and their contributions to national and international commerce.”
November 7 was the date chosen as a nod to America’s first notary, Thomas Fugill, who was appointed on that date in 1639. The very first notaries date back to the Romans and Egyptians.
So Happy Notary Public Day to you! You are appreciated for your service and for preserving and protecting the public trust.
