Looking Ahead Father’s Day is a time to celebrate the significant role that fathers play in the lives of their children. The benefits of having a positive role model sets the foundation for our children. Conversely, the effects that an absentee father can have on a child can be devastating. Recognizing the powerful impact that a father figure can have, many of our municipal elected officials serve as mentors to fill the void. So, let’s wish all our dads and father figures a truly special day and those who may not be with us, shall their memories live in our hearts forever.
