Monday, September 10 is our annual Grandparents Day celebration from 7:30-8:30 AM in the Multi-Purpose Room. Let’s take some time to honor our Camarena grandparents. Let’s appreciate all the joy and wisdom that grandparents bring to our lives!
WHY DO WE CELEBRATE GRANDPARENTS DAY?
The History of Grandparents Day
Marian McQuade hoped to establish a national day that would honor grandparents, and in 1970 she began a campaign to do so. McQuade raised awareness about senior citizens throughout the 1970s. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter declared the first Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day. Each year, the president issues a proclamation to keep the tradition going.
