Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there! We appreciate and love you EVERY day!


Did you know that Father's Day began at a YMCA? 

It was founded in Spokane, WA, at the YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd, whose father, William Jackson Smart, had raised six children on his own. After hearing a sermon about Mother’s Day, Dodd told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father’s birthday, the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June. In 1972, President Nixon recognized Father’s Day as an official holiday.
