National Grandparents Day - September 11, 2016

Posted

National Grandparents Day is a holiday celebrated in the United States since 1978. Celebrated annually on the first Sunday after Labor Day, in September it gives us a chance to celebrate the cornerstones of our families.

Marian McQuade of Oak Hill, West Virginia, has been recognized nationally by the United States Senate – in particular by Senators Jennings Randolph; and Robert Byrd – and by President Jimmy Carter, as the founder of National Grandparents Day. 

McQuade made it her goal to educate the youth in the community about the important contributions seniors have made throughout history. She also urged the youth to "adopt" a grandparent, not just for one day a year, but rather for a lifetime.

Seasonal flowers are given in appreciation to grandparents on this day.

This year, let Savilles Country Florist hand deliver a beautiful gift of flowersplants or a gourmet basket to your grandparents during National Grandparents Week.

We deliver throughout the majority of Western New York including Buffalo and the surrounding suburbs
