National Grandparents Day

Zyloware Prepares to Celebrate National Grandparents Day

September 10th, 2017

Many families in the United States observe National Grandparents Day on the first Sunday of September after Labor Day. The holiday honors grandparents and is celebrated in many ways. From gift-giving to hosting a family dinner, we all share our appreciation and express our love to our grandparents in our own special way.

National Grandparents Day is said to have more than one origin but was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter in 1978. Each year the President is requested to issue a proclamation to: designate the first Sunday in September after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day; and to call on people, groups and organizations to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

In celebration of Grandparents Day on Sunday, September 10th, we are highlighting a handful of grandparents within the Zyloware family! Below we get to know each grandparent at Zyloware and find out their favorite parts of being a grandparent.
