Father's Day Fun!

Father's Day Fun!

Father’s Day is fast approaching as the month of June whizzes by.

But how much do you know about this special occasion?

Let’s dig the history book to learn why Father’s Day came about.

Founded on 19th June 1910, Father’s Day was born after American Sonora Smart Dobb heard a Mother’s Day sermon in her town of Spokane, Washington. Established to complement Mother’s Day, Sonora sought to pay homage to her single parent father who single handedly raised six children.

Initially Father’s Day was earmarked for the 5th of June (Sonora’s father birthday), but unfortunately there wasn’t enough time for preparations and the date was pushed back to the third Sunday of June. Subsequently, it was introduced as a bill to the American Congress in 1913.
However, it was not officially recognised as a holiday till President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Have you got plans for this coming Father’s Day?

Are you still unsure on how to celebrate this special day with Dad?

Then, fret no more as you can bring your Dad down for some Father’s Day fun at our SAFRA Yishun Open house this weekend!

Here’s a little taste of what you can indulge in with your beloved father!

Scale to new heights with your Dad on our indoor rock walls. You can also get a head rush by engaging in abseiling or parachute jumping together. Or you can escape the outdoor heat by working out in our two storey indoor bouldering gym and work up a sweat.
