Executive Director's Message - May 2018

Emery Village BIA Executive Director's Message

June is right around the corner and so is Father’s Day. Do you need some ideas on what to do for dad?

Here are some suggestions that could spark some creativity and fill dad’s heart with love on Sunday, June 17.

Breakfast in bed: Food always goes a long way. The younger tots should get some help from mom and create a fantastic breakfast that dad won’t forget. Perfect touches could include dad’s favourite coffee or tea with a tasty fruit on the side.

Homemade card: Let dad know exactly how you feel about him. Pull out some paper and coloured crayons and tell a story of how much you care.

Be observant: Does dad like to read? You can always get him a book that interests him. Is dad into cars? There are plenty of books about all different types of cars and mechanics. Maybe dad is really into a particular sport or athlete? Then, biographies are a great place to really dive into how people tick and what motivated them to become the superstar they are today.

Go Fishing:

If the day turns out nicely (make sure to get your fishing license first), there are plenty of places to relax and go fishing with dad. You know, grandpa’s (who are also dad’s) like that sort of thing too.

Notes and Tips:

Emery will have a Movie in the Park on June 29. The movie is absolutely free. It will be located at Joseph Bannon Park, 65 Mary Chapman Blvd. Bring a chair and a blanket and enjoy a movie under the stars.

The movie is to be determined.

Road Safety:

Always make eye contact with drivers when crossing streets and large intersections.

It is crucial that you are not distracted as a pedestrian with mobile devices to let drivers know you see them too.

Bicycle Diplomacy:

Make sure you know proper signalling and wear proper protection when riding your bike.

As usual, stay safe this month!
