Happy Father’s Day!


The Stan Hagen Centre for Families in Victoria celebrated Father’s day by hosting their 2nd annual Hawaiian BBQ for Dads.

Dads and families were invited to a BBQ on June 13th hosted in partnership with The Salvation Army’s High Point Church. Several family activities were planned and included games enjoyed by kids of all ages.

Adding to the Hawaiian Theme, attending families were treated to the charm of the South Pacific as Tradewinds performed. Tradewinds is a local band that brings the relaxing sounds Western Samoa, New Zealand, Rotuma, Hawai’i and Fiji.

Approximately 30 people attended this wonderful evening of food, family fun and music.

Thank you to Fairways Markets for donating food for the BBQ, to Tradewinds for your music and a big thank you to all the Dads in our community for doing what you do.
