Many of the children in the community have drawn pictures and written brief stories under the theme "My Dad R.O.C.K.S." They will be on display during the event. Also, it's not too late for individuals to submit tributes to their fathers and/or mentors by e-mailing  info@3rdevelopment.org no later than Friday June 24th at 5pm.

Included in this year's events are:

  • Free Health Screenings
