Let’s hear it for the dads – those wonderful men who pour their time, energy and love into their children. If a father in your life deserves a special treat, we’ve got some ideas for you.

First, treat Dad to an old-fashioned haircut and shave at Boling’s Barbershop, manned by a couple of the biggest personalities in town.

Looking for something special to do with the dad in your life? Stroll on down to Exeter Hobbies, where you’ll find the supplies and expertise you need to expand upon your favorite hobby or to adopt a brand-new one. Those radio-controlled cars sure look fun…

For a family field trip, nothing says adventure like a trip to the zoo. Fresno Chaffee Zoo has a rich history, and the new 13-acre African Adventure is a remarkable place for cultural discovery and interactive play.

If Dad is a beer guy, he’ll appreciate a trip to the Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company’s brewery. What a delight it is to sip a locally brewed craft beer with the guy you admire most in a stylish brick venue that feels like a classical beer garden.

For many of us, watching our fathers or grandfathers work hard every day has inspired us to be the best we can be. That’s certainly true for Kevin Sayler, who has spent most of his life riding in saddles or repairing them on his grandfather’s ranch. A man of few words and a cowboy all his life, Sayler now makes a living working on saddles, but also crafting custom-designed leather pieces through Sayler Saddlery.

Finally, you’ll be inspired by Eddie Valero, who was disheartened by the lack of resources and educational opportunities for young men in small, rural towns. In response, he created Young Men’s Initiative to provide opportunities and address the needs of those with no father figures in their lives. His strategy? Fill their lives with love and compassion, and watch them find a deeper sense of belonging and connection to their community.

Happy Father’s Day, and enjoy!
