Weekend Happenings: Fast Boats, Surf’s Up, Father’s Day Fun + More
Father's Day is a time to celebrate the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children's lives. That's what I plan to do with my father and with my kids this weekend.
Let me invite you to spend part of your Father's Day with me at the South Jersey Area wind Ensemble's concert "Songs for My Father".
The free Father's Day concert, usually held outdoors at the Linwood Memorial Park, will probably be moved inside because of expected rain, at Mainland Regional High School, 3pm Sunday, June 21st. Read more about my upcoming pie in the face moment during Sunday's concert.
Have a great Father's Day!
