FATHER’S DAY IS SUNDAY, JUNE 21st. HONORING ALL FATHERS AND FATHERHOOD

Just a little history with Father’s Day:

  1. First observed in Spokane, Washington in 1910.
  2. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson wanted to make the 3rd Sunday of June a recognized federal holiday.
  3. In 1966, President LBJ issued the first presidential proclamation to make Father’s Day a national holiday.
  4. In 1972, President Richard Nixon made it a permanent national holiday.

Any dad who gardens would appreciate a Father’s Day gift with a garden theme.

Here are a few suggestions that will help you show how much he means to you:

1. HERE ARE MY TWO FAVORITE IDEAS!!! – take your dad’s pruners, lawnmower blade, cooking knives, scissors and bring them here  –

SATURDAY, JUNE 20 between 10:00 and 2:00

SHARP AGAIN

They will be here to sharpen everything!! What a surprise this could be. Your Dad will appreciate this unique effort.

GEORGIA PEACH TRUCK

Will be here FRIDAY, JUNE 19 between 3:00 and 4:30 selling freshly picked peaches. A box of peaches and/or a bag of Georgia pecans will be a welcome treat.

OR DO BOTH!!!!!!

2. A new pair of gardening gloves.

3. A new tool such as pruners, shovel, trowel

4. A beautiful, glazed container with flowering annuals planted.

5. A favorite plant both indoor tropical and outdoor.
