Searching for our top dad

31 Jul 2009

The YMCA is looking for Docklands’ top dad through its Local Community Father of the Year Award. 

Nominations opened last month and close on August 17.

Children are invited to nominate their dad – or someone who is like their dad – by writing or drawing about why their father or father figure (it could be a brother, uncle, grandfather or friend) is special.

Nomination forms are available at YMCA Docklands or at http://www.docklands.ymca.org.au. Each nominee will receive a YMCA family swim pass.

YMCA Victoria CEO Peter Burns said: “This year marks a milestones with the recognition that a father’s role in a child’s life is enormous no matter who you are.”

What’s more, this year the Victorian Fathers Day Council will consider Docklands’ top dad when awarding of the Victorian Father of the Year title.

“We know that fathers and father-figures have an incredibly important role to play in their children’s development, and this award is really aimed at raising awareness about the importance of fathering in our communities,” said Docklands YMCA manager, Nadine Kemp.

The Victorian Father of the Year will be announced at a ceremony at the Melbourne Town Hall on Thursday, August 27.
