Father’s Day History

The first Father’s Day celebration occurred near my neck of the woods, at a YMCA in Spokane, WA. The idea was birthed at church, as many good things are.

It’s said that after listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired to honor her father, a war veteran, who had raised 6 children on his own after his wife died in childbirth.

The YMCA of Spokane, Washington, and the Ministerial Alliance endorsed Dodd’s idea of a Father’s Day celebration to be held in June.

As her idea gained momentum across the country, Father’s Day celebrations began in various places.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson traveled to Spokane, Washington to join the Father’s Day celebration.

In 1966, President Lyndon B Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day.

But it wasn’t until 1972 that President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance.
