Father's Day festivities got started a little early in Salem. Today, the ymca held a Father's Day 5k and cookout. It started with a one-mile walk-run and then graduated to a little serious competition. There was also a cookout and fun activities for the entire family. While this is the first time locally the "y has hosted an event like this, the first Father's Day celebration dates back to 1910. Well the y actually founded Father's Day back in Spokane, Washington in the early 1900s. And of course the YMCAis all about family, and this is our way to tie in with that history and also celebrate dads, moms, and kids. Dads also got a chance to compete for the title of "Bes Golfer", "Faste Dad", or "Highe Jumper." The "y" hopes make this an annual event.
