We hope all the dads enjoyed Father’s Day on Sunday, with the various activities and family functions planned. Father’s Day has been celebrated for 100 years now with the first being observed on June 19, 1910 due to the efforts of Mrs. Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington, who felt fatherhood should be recognized in a similar form as Mother’s Day.
