Father's Day 2014

We are gearing up for a fabulous Father's Day!  Rio Doce is giving $5.00 off any $15.00 bucket or the $35.00 family bucket now thru June 15, Father's Day.

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.
