June Weekend Events: Happy Father’s Day! 06/15-17

Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads out there! What a fabulous weekend to celebrate how awesome our Dads and Fathers are. Dads are what give life to a family, and affect each one of us in how we view ourselves, others, and authority…even God. Dads help form a positive outlook towards who we are and who we become. They are made to be strong when needed, loving and affectionate, protective and provider all in one! How blessed we are that God made Fathers for us.

This weekend, we have the opportunity to show the men in our lives just how much they mean to us and say, “I Love You”! Here are some activities to do just that with great Movies, a little Two-Step, and even taking in some local Rescue Heroes and their Equipment…right up a manly man’s alley!

What are some happenings that you do with your special guy for Father’s Day? We would love for you to share!
