Editor's note: We have a winner! Please see our updated story to read the story submitted by contest winner Donna MacNeal. Congratulations! The Patch staff wants to thank everyone for such amazing, heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud comments about the first #1 man in your life, Dad.
Father's Day is days away and many of you may be wondering what you can give to your father to thank him for all that he has given to you.
Gifts can be thoughtful, but sometimes it’s the words that mean more, that show you truly care and appreciate what he did.
We’d like to give each of you the opportunity to tell the greater Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley areas why your father is so special and what makes him so wonderful. You may have a story you’d like to share or words of appreciation. We want to read it.
We are hoping to find some truly great Father’s Day stories, so please be sure to include your hometown in your post.
We’re so excited about getting these great stories that we’re offering $500 to one lucky person. You may want to share it with dad and take in a ballgame together, but that’s up to you. To enter, all you have to do is post your story or reflection of your dad in the comments area of this story. Please keep it to 100 words or fewer. (One entry per user.)
If you’d like to upload a picture of your dad to this article, we’d love to see it (but you have to leave a comment to be eligible for the prize.)
