Happy a day to let dad enjoy a little freedom

June 18, 2017

Enjoyable Ways To Spend Father’s Day / 517.423.3333
8080 Matthews Hwy, Tecumseh, MI 49286
Many dads and father figures will attest that Father’s
Day is special because they get to spend it with their fami-
lies. While the gifts might be nice, it’s the time together
that dads truly cherish.

Family members who want to make Father’s Day extra
special this year may want to put extra effort into custom-
izing Father’s Day fun rather than shopping for gifts.

So what equates to a fun-filled and enjoyable day for
fathers? That all depends on Dad’s interests. While no two
fathers are the same, there are some universal ideas that
can make for a memorable Father’s Day.

Fathers do a lot for their families, and many fathers

Gate Open 8:00 am - 1:00 pm that Mom often relies on him to tackle.
12751 SR 576 • Montpelier, OH 43543
Lunch provided from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm On this special day, Dad may deserve a dinner that
stands apart from more routine family meals. A specially
cooked meal that the entire family prepares together or a
reservation at a favorite restaurant will no doubt bring a
smile to Dad’s face. Make sure that the meal includes his
favorite foods.

Plan the day around an activity that Dad enjoys. If he’s
an avid fisherman, this could mean taking the rods out
and spending a few hours seeing what’s biting. Or it may
involve attending a ballgame, watching his favorite movie
or playing a few rounds of golf.
Father’s Day is a special day that many fathers would
insist is even better when spent with family.
