Sunday, June 19 is Father's Day

Father's day is the day we celebrate our fathers, father-figures, and fatherhood!. It was invented by a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd who was raised by her father and thought that they should be celebrated just as much as mothers. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who reared his six children in Spokane, Washington. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father's birthday, she did not provide the organizers with enough time to make arrangements, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.Her dad was born in June so she chose to hold the first father's day on June 19th of 1910. It was President Calvin Coolidge who decided to hold father's day on the third Sunday of June 14 years later In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Dad's love Virginia Peanuts. Father's Day is one of two holidays when Virginia Peanuts sell best. Dads also love tasty BBQ sauces such as Bone Doctor’s Original Tomato Based and Vinegar based Carolina BBQ sauces, James River Barbecue Sauce and Virginia Gentlemen sauces flavored with Virginia Gentleman 90® Small Batch Bourbon. How about some ribs......
