I want to wish a very Happy Father’s Day this Sunday to all fathers and grandfathers and those who fill the role of Dad, who live, work, play, or raise their family here in and around our communities.
Father’s Day is a day to honor and commemorate fathers and forefathers. A
special Father’s Day wish goes out to the families who are separated
due to military service, especially overseas
“Fun Facts” relating to Father’s Day:
The first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966
when President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as
Father’s Day. Father’s Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when
President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent.
Father's Day is the fifth most popular card-sending holiday, with an
estimated $100 million in card sales. Husbands, grandfathers, uncles,
sons and sons-in-law are honored as well as father.
Neck ties, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, are the number one gift for Father’s Day.
Stanley T. Banks; Father of the Bride (1991):
You fathers will understand. You have a little girl. She looks up to
you. You're her oracle. You're her hero. And then the day comes when she
gets her first permanent wave and goes to her first real party, and
from that day on, you're in a constant state of panic.
Happy Father’s Day!
