Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — It’s Relay For Life and Father’s Day weekend, and there’s lots to do for dad around town. There’s something for golfers, gardeners, car enthusiasts and more. Take advantage of the events that support your community. Why not take dad or granddad on a carousel ride at Olcott Beach Carousel Park? That’s a scrapbook photo you will treasure. Happy Father’s Day to all fathers, grandfathers, adoptive and foster fathers, youth leaders, scout leaders and teachers who act as fathers do, with positive influence of our children.
