A state agency celebrated fathers with a community event in Windsor on Saturday.
The Department of Children and Families held its second annual “Dads Matter Too” field day at Sharshon Park.
DCF said the event is about empowering fathers and recognizing the equally vital role they play in their children’s lives.
“Generationally, we’re evolving to a place where dads are playing a much more active role,” DCF Program Supervisor Joe Guion said. “You see way more stay-at-home dads, dad who are proud to be stay-at-home dads, and as we continue this work, I would say that the shift will continue with our agency.”
The agency raised all of the money so that the event was free to the community, including the more than 700 meals served by local food trucks.
