Father’s Day Began at the Y

Pay Tribute

First celebrated in June 1910 at the Spokane YMCA in Washington, Father’s Day is now recognized all over the world.

Father’s Day was founded by Sonora Louis Smart Dodd, the daughter of a single father who served in the Civil War. On Mother’s Day in 1909 Smart Dodd heard a sermon honoring mothers and wondered why there was no similar tribute for fathers. With the support of ministers in Spokane, Smart Dodd launched the first Father's Day celebration at the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. President Nixon signed Father’s Day into law in 1972.

YMCA-Family-Programs-Pinellas-Florida “The Y is proud to join in this historic celebration honoring fathers,” said G. Scott Goyer, President/CEO of the YMCA of the Suncoast. “Dads, and moms, play a paramount role in children’s lives, and the Y is committed to youth development and nurturing the family bond.”

Studies show that children with close relationships with their fathers and other adult male role models have more self-confidence and exhibit less depression, perform better academically and engage in significantly less drug and alcohol use.
