FATHER’S DAY is a day set aside for honoring fathers in church services and in the home. It is celebrated in the United States on the third Sunday of June. The idea was originated by Mrs. John Bruce Dodd, who in 1909 persuaded the Ministerial Society of Spokane, Wash., to salute fathers with special church services. The idea was ofEcially approved by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 and in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge recommended national observance of the occasion “to establish more intimate relations between fathers and their children, and to impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations.” The red or white rose is recognized as the ofBcial Father’s Day flower.
