Each Autumn, families gather together in celebration of the multiple generations that comprise their family. Grandparents Day, observed on the second Sunday in September, is a time for children to honor their grandparents, for grandparents to show love to their children’s children, and to teach children about the strength, information and guidance they can gain from older people. Marian McQuade began this day to keep these relationships special. At Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist, we encourage you to bring or send your grandparents their favorite flowers to show your love and respect this year.

Surely, two of the most satisfying experiences in life must be those of being a grandchild or a grandparent.
~Donald A. Norberg
When Marian McQuade sent the draft of a bill to Congress, asking for the institution of National Grandparents Day, she had a distinct vision as to what the purpose of the day should be. The West Virginia mother of 15 (and grandmother to many more) wanted a time set aside to honor traditions and family history as communicated by the older generations. She also felt it was an effective way to encourage families to gather often to share and learn from each other. In 1978, Congress agreed, and the first Sunday after Labor Day was designated. This year, Grandparents Day falls on September 10. If you are looking for beautiful flowers and plants to honor these special people, look no further than Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist.
