RISMEDIA, September 7, 2007–Sunday is National Grandparents Day. Don’t forget to remember these special people in our lives this weekend.The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide.
President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. For 2007, Grandparents Day falls on Sept. 9th.
Marian McQuade is now 90 years old and still going strong. Learn more about her and Grandparents Day here: http://www.grandparents-day.com/
