Father's Day Celebrations 2012

Thanks to another generous grant from FIION (Father Involvement Initiative - Ontario Network) this year's Father's Day event was a great success! The morning opend with hockey and soccer set-ups for parent and child and with a beautiful, co-operative June day the families we able to play outside until the arrival of a very special guest.

Ray's Reptiles spent an hour showing us many exciting types of reptiles including turtles, snacks, frogs an alligator and scorpion! There were alot of brave folks who touched and held the reptiles and some of the children were much braver than some of the adults!!!

Families were later treated to a barbeque and ice cream sandwiches!

Happy Father's Day to all the great Dads who work at and attend Bethany Hope Centre!!!
