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. Just make sure he gets to take a nap at some point. After all, it's Father's Day.
