Happy Father’s Day weekend from everyone at MTB Windows & More.
We hope Father’s Day is a great one for all who take on the noble cause of being great fathers to their children! We know the job of “dad” — making sacrifices and taking a leadership role — is not always an easy one. Because of that, we hope they feel valued and appreciated this coming Sunday.
Father’s Day History
The Father’s Day tradition can be traced back to the small mining town of Monongah, West Virginia in 1907. It was there that a memorial service for a large group of miners was thought to be the inspiration for the national holiday. The push for the holiday was spearheaded by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington. She proposed June 5th, because it was her father’s birthday. He had raised six children as a single parent. It took several decades to finally become a recognized holiday, as Dodd continued to promote it to those in power.
President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers in 1966. He designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. He would be signed into law in 1972 by President Richard M. Nixon.
