Did you know that the creation of Father’s Day is credited to Sonora Smart Dodd? She was the daughter of a widowed-Civil War veteran and helped her father raise her 5 brothers after the death of their mother. Having heard of the newly created Mother’s Day holiday Sonora thought that fathers should be honored with their own holiday as well. She worked with the local YMCA, churches and businesses in Spokane, Washington to create the first Father’s Day celebrations in June 1910. The month was chosen to honor her father’s birthday which was also in June.
