JUNE IS FATHERHOOD AWARENESS MONTH
Fathers matter. Whether it’s giving his baby a bath, learning how to braid a daughter’s hair, helping with virtual schooling, eating together with family, or cheering from the stands, dads are vital in the upbringing of their children. 

A father’s influence continues to be important as children grow up. When dads talk with older kids about their daily lives, help them with college and career decisions, and share parenting wisdom with their adult kids, the impact is immeasurable.

Research tells us when dads are involved in the lives of their children, those children tend to be more psychologically and emotionally balanced and tend to have better social skills, higher grades and stronger parenting skills when they start their own families. When fathers are involved, children are less vulnerable to childhood poverty, substance abuse, juvenile delinquency and teen pregnancy.
Play it for the Kids
Golf Outing was a HUGE Success
Thank you to the generous sponsors and 116 golfers who attended our golf outing on Monday, June 7th. A little afternoon rain did not dampen the spirits of our special day. As we tally all the proceeds and expenses, it looks to be a record event thanks to many!
