The Inn at the Poland Way hosted their first Father’s Day Social on June 16 in the dining areas of the facility.

The event allowed for residents and their families to get together for food to celebrate the holiday at the facility.

Approximately 65 people attended the dinner. The families had ate around 2:30 p.m., then had dessert and some won centerpieces that the inn gave away through a raffle.

“We wanted to make sure [the resident fathers] knew how important they are to us,” said Kathy Boosinger, the recreation director of the organization.

The families ate pizza and wings from Cocca’s Pizza along with some vegetables from the Inn at Poland Way’s kitchen for their meal. For their dessert, they made their own sundaes.

They raffled the centerpieces to the residents. These centerpieces included candy, such as Dad’s Root Beer hard candy, Pop Rocks and Tootsie Pops.

The facility had a similar event on Mother’s Day, and they wanted to show their appreciation for all of the residents and bring in the residents’ families and friends.
