National Grandparents Day Song_A Song for Grandma and Grandpa by Johnny Prill
History of National Grandparents Day

National Grandparents Day began with the compassion of Marian McQuade, who
believed in recognizing the vital role of grandparents. This West Virginian housewife
encouraged Americans to value the knowledge and integrity that grandparents
possess. She called upon the help of political authorities, church leaders, and civic
organizations to gather support for the cause.

West Virginia's Governor, Arch Moore, announced the state's first Grandparents Day
in 1973. McQuade, along with her supporters, continued to campaign for this special
day by corresponding with media consultants and government representatives from
each state. After the approval of the United States Congress in 1978, President Jimmy
Carter signed a proclamation declaring Grandparents Day a National Holiday.
Grandparents Day is celebrated annually on the first Sunday after Labor Day.  
September was selected to symbolize the autumn years of life.

The official song, "A Song for Grandma and Grandpa," captures the true meaning
of the holiday. United States Senator Debbie Stabenow told Johnny: "It is wonderful
that "A Song for Grandma and Grandpa" was chosen as the official song of National
Grandparents Day. You have put into words the unique relationship between
grandparents and their grandchildren." The act of remembrance signified by the
Forget-Me-Not makes it the perfect flower for Grandparents Day. The observance of
this holiday has gained popularity throughout the years and continues to grow stronger.

zest is always apparent to anyone lucky enough to catch one of his shows. From a young
teenager volunteering to entertain the residents of a local nursing home to the many clubs
and venues he has performed at throughout the years, Johnny does everything a hundred
and ten percent.
