Father's Day Short History In 1915, a member of the Lions Club introduced the concept of Father's Day. The preference was for the day to occur on the third Sunday in June. The Lions Club International elected to give him the official designation as the "Originator of Father's Day" and he continued the quest to promote Father's Day as an official holiday. After receiving numerous requests for a special day to honor fathers, in 1916, President Wilson proclaimed a day should be recognized as a federal holiday. This was during a speech he gave in Spokane at a Father's Day celebration. However, when the concept reached Congress, it was denied. The majority of the members in Congress were concerned that it would become too commercialized, and the true meaning would be all about companies profiting. President Coolidge suggested a recognition for Father's Day in 1924. Then in 1957, a female Senator spoke out that Congress had been ignoring fathers for over 40 years and had only been honoring mothers. Then in 1966 the first proclamation of Father's Day was issued by President Lyndon B. Johnson. It was declared that the day to honor all fathers would be the third Sunday [...]

Shop at Rockcastle Florist this Veterans Day for the most impactful and beautiful flowers to honor your special Veteran

Rockcastle Florist The meaningful history surrounding Veterans Day on November 11th is interesting and quite unique. In 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, all major hostilities of World War I were formally ended.  Veterans Day was initially referred to as Armistice Day and was created to celebrate the service of all U.S. military veterans. A wonderful gesture of complete respect and appreciation for their sacrifices is to honor a Veteran on this special day by giving them a flower arrangement or plant from Rockcastle Florist. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson gave a memorable speech where he highly commended the men and women of the United States military. "To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations". Other countries celebrate both Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in remembrance to the end of World War I. In 1954, Veterans Day became the official name in the US to honor our military men and women. Veterans Day differs from Memorial Day. While both days honor our military, Memorial Day is designated to honor those who died while fighting for our country. Veterans Day is designated to honor all of the military folks who have served our country. You will find creative, loving and fresh floral products at Rockcastle Florist. Here is a short list of ideas for other kind acts to honor a Veteran. Veteran Speaker - Many veterans have wonderful and inspirational stories of overcoming adversity and never giving [...]

Add More Flowers to Your Life with BloomGal Subscription Service

Our BloomGal subscription flower service has been available for a few months now throughout the Finger Lakes, including our Rochester flower shop and our website. It's proving to be a very popular way to add flowers to your life on a regular basis. Subscription services have become a popular way to receive items on a regular basis without having to do all the work of shopping and ordering every month. Instead, it's all curated for you based on your preferences. It's a great way to also discover new products. When we saw just how popular these subscription services were becoming, it made sense to create a premium floral service. That's how BloomGal got started as the brainchild of the co-owner of Rockcastle Florist, Wendy Rockcastle. With the help of her daughter, Mary Ethel Rockcastle, this dynamic duo wanted to bring more beauty to their friends and neighbors by offering the local floral subscription service, BloomGal. However, the ladies behind the special subscription service also wanted to add a special and personalized component. And, that is they wanted to highlight women in the community who inspire them and those that know them. When someone nominates a BloomGal, they get featured on the BloomGal blog. This is an excellent way to empower women in the local community and help everyone understand that everyone is special in some way or another. The flower subscription service is easy. You just choose a size and the frequency. For example, you can choose to have the flowers delivered bi-weekly, weekly, monthly, or seasonally. Prices start at $50 for each frequency and come with free delivery. You can send the flowers to yourself or someone else as long as they are in the Finger Lakes area. While we hope to expand in the near future, we have [...]
