Did you know Father’s Day was founded in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Arkansas.  Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis’ Mother’s Day in 1909, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father’s birthday, the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.

To prevent soggy bottoms when baking fruit pies, sprinkle a thin layer of ground up graham cracker crumbs on the crust, then add the filling.  The crumbs will soak up any excess liquid.


The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!

  1. Thank you for all the information on Father’s Day. It is celebrated in Sept over here in Australia, and with reading about the day, I now know why. I found all that very informative and interesting. I think I will be making one of those pies for my husband, even though not Father’s Day. thank you Sue

  2. Judy…thank you for including my Coffee Pie in your collection of Father’s Day pies!
