June 09 : 10 days till Father’s Day

Did you know that Mrs. Dodd’s vision of Father’s Day did not become reality until 63 years later?

In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day.

Father’s Day is a day of commemoration and celebration of Dad. It is a day to not only honor your father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life – whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, or “Big Brothers.” So join our Father’s Day festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Father’s Day on Sunday June 19th!

Help shine a positive light on the contribution of mechanics, who keep our cars road-ready and safe.

And on a personal note: Having a family member who is a mechanic is a good as having a doctor in the family! :)
