Another Version of “Call Me, Maybe” and this time it’s from the AARP
Grandparent’s Day is coming up this weekend, September 9th!! And AARP has done a video, and yep like everyone else on the planet (including Grampy James), they did it to Carly Rae Jepsen’s ’Call Me Maybe.’ It is cute and sweet and will will make you shed a tear or two. There is more to the story, I would guess.
Grandparent’s Day all started with Marian McQuade from Fayette County, West Virginia. Her goal was to draw some attention to lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grand kids to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. In 1978, President Carter mad it official and proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
