Who Started Father's Day?

Posted by Charlene Davis on

Sonora Smart Dodd from Spokane Washington started Father's Day at the age of  27. Sonora was inspired to start this holiday while attending a Mother's Day celebration at her church.  Her mother died giving birth to a younger sibling when Sonora was 16 years old.  William Jackson Smart, Sonora's father, a farmer and Civil War veteran. raised six children alone. 
Mr. Smart was a hero in Sonora's eyes.  Don't forget to recognize your hero on Father's Day.  Visit All Eyes On U  Men's Collection for great gift ideas.   Father's Day Gift Cards are also available.
