Honoring fathers in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul community was the focus of a series of activities June 8-16 hosted by Positive Image during its Annual Father’s Day Celebration. In addition to acknowledging the contributions of local fathers, a portion of the proceeds generated from the events provided scholarships to help minority young men attend college.
The events included a series of workshops hosted at the Minneapolis Urban League South office focusing on community health, legal resources and employment opportunities. It also included an evening dinner and awards ceremony on June 14 where more than 100 fathers gathered at The Doubletree Hotel in St. Louis Park.
A “Picnic in the Park,” family-friendly cookout featured entertainment, food and a host of activities in the Central Park Pavilion on Saturday June 15. The week culminated in a worship service and breakfast gathering at New Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Minneapolis on Father’s Day.
