The Real Dads Network kicked off its sixth annual celebration of Fathers Week with a Fathers and Children Picnic, held at Roy Wilkins Park in Jamaica on June 1.

The event featured hot dogs and hamburgers straight off the barbecue; arts, crafts and games provided by the city Parks Department; and an educational magic show performed by Wayne Superious.

The picnic and activities were co-sponsored by the office of state Assemblyman William Scarborough (D-Jamaica), Forestdale Inc. and the Open Society Foundation Campaign for Black Male Achievement.

Scarborough and representatives of the Real Dads Network announced that they intend to make the picnic an annual event for fathers and children.

Welcome to the discussion.
