Pop by the museum for a Father's Day treat the week of June 12th through the 16th.
The Virgin Valley Heritage Museum is celebrating Father's Day. Pop by the museum for a Father's Day treat the week of June 12th through the 16th. between 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. We will be sharing some of Danielle's delicious popcorn.
The first observance of "Father's Day" was on July 5, 1908, in Fairmont, West Virginia, in the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South. Interestingly, it was not until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as "Father's Day". Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law.
Fathers, thanks, we appreciate you.
