Father’s Day 6/19/16

Father’s Day is a holiday honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Celebrated initially in 1908, this special day was a “copycat” of Mother’s Day and never really took  roots in the United States for another 40 years or more. Gradually it became recognized as an important day to honor our Fathers and in 1972, President Nixon signed the law creating the holiday.

Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in this country and many other countries around the world. Additionally, there are many countries with a similar holiday celebrated at a different time of the year. Often thought of as a “Hallmark” holiday and a chance to buy Dad an ugly tie, it really is an important day to celebrate the contribution and influence that Fathers have on their families and the society at large.

I am personally blessed to have my Father, at age 89, still alive, active and living 20 minutes away from me in Leawood, Kansas. The memories that I have of him as I grew up in Northwest Iowa and through out my adult life are vivid and more important to me than any material possession one could ever own. We will spend at least a portion of this day together with extended family breaking bread, watching the US Open golf tournament and otherwise hearing the stories of days gone by that never get old. If you are not so fortunate as to have your Father still with you, no doubt he will be in your thoughts and prayers.

Please let me be the first to wish all of our customers and employees a very Happy Father’s Day!
