Happy Father's Day!!!....sure it's not until June 15...but here's some ideas from the Heart City! Plus weekend activities!

You love your dad and don't know what he needs or wants. If he's like a lot of dads, he has everything...except for adventure! That's why he needs a vacation in Valentine, Nebraska...a relaxing float on the Niobrara River! Brewers Canoers can help you out with tube, canoe or kayak reservations. This is the Niobrara River with the sun glistening off the gentle waves as it goes down!

Make it a family affair and get your whole family matching adventure shirts...Niobrara River!!!! Outback Screen Printing and Embroidery has everything you need...T-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, caps, flasks, shoes...for the entire family. But this is Father's Day we're talking about. With Outback Screen Printing and Embroidery, you get to be the designer...choose what you want and it will be ready when you get here!

What dad doesn't love to grill? Henderson's IGA has Traeger grills and beef that will melt in your mouth cooked the Traeger way. Click on Henderson's link above and go to their Traeger grill information tab. Your dad will be king of the feast!

Maybe he's not into water or grilling...perhaps he's a marksman. Berry Creek Gun and Pawn will have something he's ALWAYS WANTED! And there is the local shooting range for him to practice with his new firearm.

Now to make Father's Day extra special stay at Trade Winds Lodge. John and Joan are the best people and will make you feel like family during your stay. There is even breakfast, so no one will have to cook!

Moms and the girls might need something to do while dad relaxes in front of the TV at Trade Winds...head downtown and visit the Quilting Cupboard. There's fabric that would be perfect for a quilt for Christmas!!!! Why not peek now and see what you can find. You'll have allllll summer loooooong to get it completed!

While you're there, pick up a little wool project by Fear Not Pattern Co. No doubt Dad has had days that drive him down right batty?? Perhaps he needs to Fully Rely On God? There's a pattern for both. And something for moms, and grandmas, and ... well, you get the idea.

Go on... give dad the adventure of a lifetime, right here in Valentine, Nebraska! You'll benefit from the adventure as well. After all, the Sandhills are Your Ticket 4 Adventure...Family fun all year round!

Remember...this weekend is packed full of Dad stuff! The 4th annual Andrew Claymon Fishing Tournament at Merritt Reservoir this Saturday, then at 6:00 p.m. is the Valentine Classic Motor Club Cruise Night. Relay for Life begins with a supper at 5:30 and the Survivor Lap will begin at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome!
