Don’t Forget Father’s Day, June 17th!  

By Michelle Goetz, J.D., Project Coordinator 

 If your dad is around, would you do me a favor? Forget finding the ‘perfect’ gift, and spend some time with him.  

My dad lives far away from me, but we always make a Skype date (virtual) to catch up. Like many of those who will read this post, my life can be busy and time flies by. Therefore, it becomes even more important to make sure my dad knows how much he means to me and my family.  

Although no one is perfect, fathers too deserve some special time and words, even though they may try to put on a tough façade.  

If my dad were in Michigan, he would be happy even if I were to sit and watch his favorite movies with him, go to his favorite restaurant, help clean up his yard, or even go to a nearby lake and go fishing. It doesn’t have to be something expensive, just something genuine.  

Michigan offers lots of fun activities to do for Father’s Day. To find what events you and your father may enjoy doing together this year, check out this compilation of ideas on We Go Places. You can even filter by city, date, and category. 

I would like to dedicate this post to all the wonderful fathers and father figures who have touched the lives of others. Thank you for all that you do.
