Itís Fatherís Day, and the very first national celebration of this day was on June 19, 1924, by proclamation of President Calvin Coolidge (But not finalized until 1972.) But it all came about because of the efforts of Sonora Smart Dodd. Sonora was sitting in church in 1909 listening to a Motherís Day sermon when the idea of Fatherís Day first came to mind. Having been raised by her father after her motherís death, Sonora wanted her father to know how special he was to her for all his parental sacrifices and for being, in her eyes, so courageous, selfless, and loving. Through her efforts Pres. Coolidge designated the 3rd Sunday of June as ďFatherís Day.Ē And our nation has been celebrating it ever since.
