Invite a member of CAN! to visit your community for

Great Gift for Dad…Happy Father’s Day

I’m sure I’m not the only person who loves Father’s Day. For me it just another day that I can show my dad how much I appreciate and love him. So I’ve decided to write this poem.

You Are More Than

More than a cheerleader

More than a friend

More than a listener

More than a mechanic

More than a teacher

More than a cook

More than a protector

More than a doctor

More than a leader

More than a father

More than amazing.

You are MY DAD

Happy Father’s Day
