2007 Grandparents Day e-Newsletter

31 Aug 2007

Dear Friend,

A certain housewife named Marian McQuade thought of a way of honoring the elderly in nursing homes. She lobbied to have a day to celebrate their worth and great wisdom! This resulted in 1978's proclamation of the first Grandparent's day ever.

Wise words and a true appreciation of life count as the wealth of our seniors. Let's not let this day pass without our paying tribute to them!
