- DAD-durday at the YMCA
Father’s Day was born at the YMCA in Washington state back in 1910. Sonora Smart Dodd, whose father, William Jackson Smart, had raised six children on his own came up with the idea. After hearing a sermon about Mother’s Day, Dodd told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. In 1972, President Nixon recognized Father’s Day as an official holiday.
The YMCA will offer an ARROW MAKING CLASS as an introduction to our new Adventure Guide Program! It will take place this Saturday from 10-12 a.m. Adventure Guides is a Father-Child program starting this fall, where dad’s gather in local “circles” and have adventures with their kids. Call 928-723-2013 to register for DAD-durday.
