Happy Father’s Day!

Father’s Day is traditionally celebrated on the third Sunday of June.  The celebration of the holiday is primarily credited to the efforts of Sonora Smart Dodd, dating back to 1910.  It is believed that Dodd felt the need to honor fathers after hearing a sermon about the newly recognized Mother’s Day holiday.  In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson officially proclaimed it a national holiday.  Some people observe the custom by wearing a red rose if their father is living and a white rose if he is deceased.  Please remember to take the time to thank your father for all that he has done for you.
