Celebration of Fatherhood for Lorain County Dads, June 20


Lorain County: There’s no better way to spend Father’s Day weekend than an afternoon in the park with dear old Dad…so join in the fun at the Celebration of Fatherhood on Saturday, June 20, 2009, from noon to 5:00 pm at Lakeview Park in Lorain (part of the Lorain County Metro Parks on West Erie Avenue near Rt. 58). 


Sponsored by the Healthy Fathering Collaborative of Lorain County (HFCoLC), it is a free event opened to all Lorain County dads and their children.  There is no registration required.


The Celebration of Fatherhood event provides a safe, supportive environment to help fathers engage with their children and connect with other dads, especially those who may be divorced, separated or never married.


The afternoon will feature a host of activities including face painting, volleyball, kayaking, kite flying and swimming at the beach.  A sand castle building contest, sack and two-legged races, and a balloon toss will foster teamwork between dads and their children. 


Families will also enjoy participating in bicycle safety demonstrations and swimming safety sessions sponsored by the Lorain County Metro Park.  The Lorain County Library mascot will also be in attendance at the Celebration of Fatherhood. 


As part of the event, the HFCoLC will provide a free lunch of traditional picnic fare, while the Lorain County Health Department will be supplying healthy snacks and be performing blood pressure screenings.  In addition, door prizes and drawings will be held every hour.


The HFCoLC is composed of 13 like-minded agencies with the purpose of building and strengthening the relationships between fathers and their children, as well as assisting fathers in their parenting role.  These agencies are: Cornerstone Among Women, FCII of Ohio, Just Like Us Enrichment Center, LCADA, Life Skills of Ohio, Lorain County Community Action Agency, Lorain County Health Department, Lorain County Metro Parks, Lorain County Urban League, Open Arms Christian Community, Out of Zion Ministries, The Nord Center, and The Rock Church.
