Resident Council Hosted Father’s Day Celebration
The Lafayette Housing Authority’s Resident Council hosted a Father’s Day Celebration on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the Macon Road Development Site (300 Macon Road).
The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Strong Families Initiative builds upon HUD’s longstanding Father’s Day efforts to involve fathers in the lives of their children. This year HUD expanded the focus to include mothers, children and parents of all kinds!
Opening prayer was delivered by Felton and Clara Duncan. Guest speakers included representatives from Louisiana Excel Care, the Surrey Street Community Health Center and more.
Children enjoyed water slides, snowballs, and cotton candy. Other refreshments were also served.
Families from all development sites (Macon, Martin Luther King, Simcoe, Moss, Irene and C. O. Circle) were welcome to attend.
