Celebrate National Grandparent's Day

Posted on August 16, 2013 at 9:44 AM
September 8, 2013 marks National Grandparent’s Day. The origin of this special time can be traced back to 1973 and Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade. She wanted this holiday to:

  • honor grandparents
  • give grandparents an opportunity to shower their love on their children's children
  • help children become aware of the strength, information, and guidance older people can offer.
She painstakingly sought acceptance for this celebration and on August 3, 1978 President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation to make the  first Sunday of September after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day.

Today the legacy of Marian McQuade is carried on by her children and grandchildren with some of them working on the National Grandparents Day Council.   

What will you do to commemorate this special time?
