NAWRB wishes you and your family a wonderful Father’s Day this Sunday, June 16th, 2019. The holiday was established in 1966 with President Lyndon Johnson’s proclamation designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. The idea was influenced by a woman named Sonora Dodd in 1909, who wanted to honor her father, a widowed Civil War veteran. In honor of this special day, the U.S. Census Bureau has released interesting facts to create a snapshot of fatherhood in America.
