Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the amazing Dad's out there!

Father's Day has been celebrated for 100 years. It all started when a young woman, Sonora Smart Dodd, wanted to honor her dad.

After sitting in church listening to a Mother's Day sermon, she decided to dedicate a day for her father, William Smart Dodd.

Sonora's mother died in childbirth, so her father singlehandedly raised a newborn baby and his five other children.

Sonora wanted to dedicate to her father on June 5th, his birthday, so she petitioned for the holiday to be recognised in her city. Needing for more to arrange the festivities, Spokane's mayor pushed the date back by 2 weeks, and the first Father's Day was celebrate on June 19th 1910.
