Happy Father's Day
This Sunday is Father's Day. It is a day of
commemoration and celebration of Dad. It is a day to not only honor your
father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life -
whether as stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, or "big brothers." We here at StateCollege.com have put together some things happening around the area that might interest you and Dad. You could even win a $50 gift certificate to Zola. Just make sure he gets
to take a nap at some point. After all, it's Father's Day. (See guide here)
