Father's Day History: Father's Day is celebrated on the 3rd
Sunday in June. "The idea for creating a day for children to honor
their fathers began in Spokane, Washington. A woman by the name of Sonora
Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's
Day sermon in 1909. Having been raised by her father, Henry Jackson Smart,
after her mother died, Sonora wanted her father to know how special he
was to her. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and
was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving man.
Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Father's
Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910.
In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday
in June as Father's Day. Roses are the Father's Day flowers: red to
be worn for a living father and white if the father has died". Extract From: http://www.marvelcreations.com/fathersday.html
Letters: Here's a way to SUPPORT OUR TROOPS: From/To: Gerald "Jerry" Merna and David D. Perlmutter: "WE ALL SUPPORT the troops, or so claim the forest of
bumper stickers, yard signs, and even placards at demonstrations in defense of or against
the war in Iraq." (Extract from DAVID D. PERLMUTTER's Editorial.)

Alumni Family and Friends: is Under
Construction! Development of this new section of our alumni website is
moving along and is approx. 50% completed. When finished, every Alumni
that has at least one article posted on our website, will have their own
"Alumni Family and Friends" section. Each Alumni (or Friend) will have
a Family Index webpage to call "Your Own HomePage". Your Family
Index webpage will contain links to all your stuff, regardless of where
they are posted on our St. Agnes Alumni website. We encourage you to submit
articles for posting in your section. Your submissions can also be articles
about your friends, in effect making your section "Your Very Own Website".
Please note that until construction is completed,
I will be breaking down links and creating new links. As you browse
our alumni website, you may encounter "broken links" or "missing links"
to articles that should be posted on your "Family and Friends" Index
webpage. If you encounter problems with links, please email the URL
or a description of the "broken links" or "missing articles" to Web
