A Fun Painting Project with Dad

sneakers311

Having not lived near my Dad and not celebrating Father’s Day face to face for sooooo many years , I forget what people do to honor their Papa in person. Take him out to brunch? Bring him breakfast in bed? Make a card? Buy him flowers? Go fishing? Do some yard work with him? Give him a new tie? What?

According to Wikipedia, Father’s Day was founded in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910. In 1913, a bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress. AND in 1966, President Lyndon B Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Who knew??

So, if you were really wondering what to do, perhaps a bit of creative bonding is in order. Paint a pair of  sneakers together on Sunday, June 16 from 2-5pm.

No talent required, only a pair of clean canvas shoes and the willingness to have fun. Pre-registration for each of you required.
