Grandparent's Day - September
These cards are keepsakes that you will cherish forever! As your
child/grandchild grows you can track their skill development and see the
beginning of their creative style!
First Sunday After Labor Day
|In 1970, a West
Virginia housewife, Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, initiated a campaign
to set aside a special day just for Grandparents. Through concerted
efforts on the part of civic, business, church, and political leaders,
this campaign expanded statewide. Senator Jennings Randolph (D-WV) was
especially instrumental in the project. The first Grandparents Day was
proclaimed in 1973 in West Virginia by Governor Arch Moore. Also in
1973, Senator Randolph introduced a Grandparents Day resolution in the
United States Senate. The resolution languished in committee.
Mrs. McQuade and her team turned
to the media to garner support. They also began contacting governors,
senators, congressmen in every state. And they sent letters to churches,
businesses, and numerous national organizations interested in senior
citizens. In 1978, five years after its West Virginia inception, the
United States Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday
after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The
proclamation was signed by President Jimmy Carter. (September was chosen
for the holiday, to signify the "autumn years" of life.)
Today this event, begun by
only a few, is observed by millions throughout the United States.
