Founded in 1973 by Marian McQuade, a coal-miners wife who
raised fifteen children and had forty-three grandchildren, Grandparents
Day honors grandparents and seeks to strengthen the bond between
grandparents and grandchildren. It is also dedicated to educating
children about the valuable contributions seniors have made throughout
Grandparents Day is celebrated every year on the first Sunday after
Labor Day. It's a great opportunity to talk to your grandparents about
your family tree or look through old photo albums together. If your
grandparents are no longer with us, consider volunteering to work with
the elderly in your area.
Happy Grandparents Day to all the grandparents and grandchildren of the world!
