Father’s Day is this SUNDAY and it’s time for us to celebrate some pretty special local Dads. During this pandemic, many Dads have pitched in overtime to keep things smooth sailing at home by shifting priorities to not only focus on their professional careers in a less than ideal environment, but also pitching in to help with homeschooling, childcare, cooking, taking care of their partner, and more!
Many Dads have also been on the front-line performing heroic duties with grace, and then coming home to provide much-needed comfort to those waiting at home. We are all experiencing unique circumstances, and Dad’s deserve to be recognized for their superhero status!
We partnered with local mortgage broker, Brian Cavanaugh for our first Dad's Day giveaway. Brian Cavanaugh is a local father of four (#feedfourkids), and he jumped at the chance to help celebrate all things dad! Each winning father is receiving a $100 gift card to support the local business of their choice.
In the final days leading up to Father’s Day, the Anchor will be sharing some of the special winning dads in our community. Originally, we were only going to feature three Dads but we decided to feature four because some of the entries were just too good.
Today, we are excited to announce our second winner …
Steven Weiss, is Father of Breanna Weiss and husband of Stephanie Gertz. Steven Weiss is also the Cantor at Congregation Sha’aray Shalom in Hingham.
Here is the sweet submission from Steven’s daughter, Breanna:
My dad inspires me in many ways. One way my father inspires me is that he is always helping someone. He is either helping my mom, helping the people at his job, and helping to set up play equipment and playing with my brother and I. My dad inspired me to try my best at all times and to never give up even when the going gets tough. He is inspiring because he takes the time out of his day to play with my brother and I and to also personally call each and everyone of his congregants to make sure that they are doing well during this covid-19 outbreak and seeing if there's anything that he can do to help. My dad never gives up and is so very kind. He is great at football and a lot of other sports like tennis. He inspires me to always look on the brightside and to think positively. That is how my dad inspires me.
