Birthday Greeting Card
Click on the image and print a June birthday card. (It is a quarter-fold card, so it will print on one sheet of paper.) Type the name of your "special person" on the front and add a personal message inside. Print as many cards as you need. Fold the cards and deliver them to those people celebrating birthdays this month, including residents, staff, and volunteers.
Blank Birthday Card
Some of our international members have requested a blank card so they can type their own message.
On a ship of birthday wishes
We hope will all come true.
Smooth sailing and Happy Birthday
Click on the image and print envelopes to go with your birthday cards and invitations. Print as many as you need. Cut them out, fold, and glue. Here are the directions for making an envelope.
Personal Birthday Flyer
Click on the image and open a special two-page birthday flyer with fun facts about the month. Personalize the flyer by replacing "Your Special Month" with the person's name (e.g., "Mary's Special Month"). Also, if you want, replace the introductory paragraph with something more personal (e.g., "This month is extra special because you were born on ____.") When you are finished, print a copy and send it out in place of a birthday card.
Birthday Door Sign
Birthday Doorknob Card
Click on the image and type the person's name and a personal message on the front. If you want, also add a personal message on the back. (Or, delete our text and handwrite.) Print on card stock or regular paper. (Regular paper works well since it is folded for double thickness.) Cut out along the outside lines. Fold along the center line. (If you're using card stock, trace down the center line with a dull knife to make a crisp fold.) Cut on the angled line in the upper corner and continue to cut around the circle. (Both holes will be cut at once, which will make them line up perfectly.) Glue the two sides together using a glue stick. Hang it on a doorknob on someone's birthday.
Go to our Calendars page and make a special June birthday calendar. Simply type in the birthdays of your residents, staff, volunteers, etc. Post the calendar on your bulletin board this month. Alternatively, place it in a nice frame and stand it on a table in your lobby area.
40" Birthday Banner
Click on the image and print a June birthday banner. Tip: You don't need special banner paper. The banner will print on four 8.5" X 11" sheets of regular computer paper. Simply glue or tape the sheets together.) For a more personal sign, write the names of your June birthday folks randomly on the sign.
Click on the image and print a June birthday party invitation. (It is a quarter-fold card, so it will print on one sheet of regular paper.) Type the date, time, and location on the inside. Print copies, fold, and pass them out to all of your invited guests. Use the matching envelope if you want.
Party Place Cards
Click on the image for a sheet of six place cards. Before printing, type six guests' names on the fronts. You can also type names or special messages on the backs of the cards (will type upside down). If you prefer, delete our text, print, and handwrite your place cards. Print as many sheets as you need. Print on heavy card stock paper. Cut out along the outside border, fold along the center, and your place cards are ready for a party.

Birthday Song & Lyrics
This month's special June birthday song is written to the tune of "By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea" Here are some options:
- Print large-print copies of the new lyrics. Pass them out and ask all of the guests to sing along. Or, ask some staff members to sing the song during your monthly birthday party.
- Download the instrumental music to accompany this month's special birthday song. ( For instructions on how to download MP3 files, see our Music page.)
- Download a recording of the song being sung a cappella. (This is for those of us who can't carry a tune.) Again, pass out copies of the lyrics and ask everyone to sing along with our very own Carrie Fairchild.
- Or, download a recording of Carrie singing the song with the instrumental background.
If you enjoy these recording and find them useful, or if you have suggestions, please let us know.
