Happy Father’s Day!


Father’s Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that your own father has made to your life. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers. It is a relatively modern holiday so different families have a range of traditions. Father’s Day is not a federal public holiday in Canada. It falls on a Sunday, which is a day off for many workers so many offices and stores are closed. However, some shopping precincts and stores, as well as restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues, may be particularly busy on Father’s Day.

There are some suggestions that the idea of Father’s Day may originate in pagan sun worship. Some branches of paganism see the Sun as the father of the universe. The June solstice occurs around the same time of year as Father’s Day so some people saw a link between the two.

The idea of a special day to honor fathers and celebrate fatherhood was introduced from the United States. A woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired by the American Mother’s Day celebrations and planned a day to honor fathers early in the 20th century. The first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910.

In the United States, there are a range of events, which may have inspired the idea of Father’s Day. One of these was the start of the Mother’s Day tradition in the first decade of the 20th century. Another was a memorial service held in 1908 for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in December 1907.

The art show will feature paintings in a variety of styles, including acrylic, oil, watercolour and mixed media.

“A few months ago, ten Mississippi Mills painters got together to talk about having a show in 2018,” said The Ten Collective member Eileen Hennemann. “We became very excited about the potential of sharing our work with each other’s networks and about mounting an exhibit in a heritage location — the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. It is a perfect venue for a group of our size.”

The Ten Collective artists are Amelia Ah You, Jill Halliday, Eileen Hennemann, Rosemary Leach, Marina Malvada, Katherine McNenly, Kaija Savinainen Mountain, Jennifer Noxon, Lily Swain and Nancy Young.
