Fatherhood Initiative hosts ‘Dads Play Day’

To celebrate Father’s Day and encourage dads to spend more time with their children, the Prince William County Fatherhood Initiative is hosting its second annual ‘Dads Play Day.’

The free community event will take place at Leitch Waterworks Park in Woodbridge on Saturday, June 11 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The goal of ‘Dad’s Play Day’ is to encourage dads to spend more time with their children.

The event includes free access to the water park, fun activities, and refreshments. Space is limited to the first 300 residents, and individuals are encouraged to RSVP by June 3 at www.pwcgov.org/fatherhood.

More than 200 parents and children participated in the first ‘Dads Play Day’ event last year at the A.J. Ferlazzo Building.

Under the oversight of Social Services Director Courtney Tierney and Deputy County Executive Elijah Johnson, the Prince William County Fatherhood Initiative’s (PWCFI) mission is to empower fathers to do what is in the best interest of their children. Although the event focuses on fathers and their children, mothers can attend and participate, as well.

“Last year’s Dads Play Day was a great community event for fathers and their children to spend time together and have fun,” said PWCFI Steering Committee Chairman Derwin Overton.

“The father-child relationship is really important to the health, safety and stability of our County,” said Prince William Department of Social Services Chief-of-services Phyllis Jennings-Holt, who is PWCFI Co-chairing the event. “We know that the active involvement of a father can have a positive impact on children. Events like these help create lasting memories and encourage closer father-child relationships.”
