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 third winner …
Brian Mulkerrin, husband to Katie and father of Liam, Mary and Lucas!
Here is the sweet submission from Brian’s son, Liam Mulkerrin, age 8:
I nominate my father (Brian Mulkerrin) for the Father's Day Contest. He is a great dad because he helps me with math. He takes me to hockey and always cheers me on. He takes me fishing on the weekends. He cooks the best pancakes and scrambled eggs in the morning. Before he goes to work, he and I go for a bike ride really early in the morning and we stop at the big rock on Mainstreet to take a break and talk about stuff. He works really hard as an engineer and I love to learn about the buildings he designs in Boston. I love when he gets home early and surprises us. I think my dad is the best dad to me and my little sister and brother.
