SERVPRO® Wishes Everyone a Happy Father’s Day!

6/6/2023 (Permalink)

Sunday, June 18th is Father’s Day this year and it is a time to celebrate fatherhood and paternal bonds. People across the United States use this day to show the special men in their lives how appreciative they are for their hard work and dedication. This single holiday ensures that everyone, at least once a year, takes the time to think of dear ole dad and show him some much deserved love.

The Beginning of Father’s Day

Father’s Day had a slow start in the United States. On July 5, 1908, a church in West Virginia is on record for celebrating fathers during a Sunday sermon. It was in memory of the 362 men who had died the past December due to the explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines. This, however, was just a one-time commemoration. The following year, however, in Spokane, Washington, Sonora Smart Dodd attempted to establish the official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents, in honor of her own father who was a widower that raised six kids on his own. It did take some time to drum up support, but on June 19, 1910, Washington State celebrated the first statewide Father’s Day. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge finally urged state governments to observe the holiday.

SERVPRO® of Columbia County would like to wish all father figures a Happy Father’s Day, and should an unexpected fire or water damage arise, give us a call ay 706-868-5441, we’ll take away the stress and make it “Like it never even happened.®”
