NCFM Member helps organize first Fathers’ Day Essay Contest sponsored by the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men

June 23, 2011

Mike Geanoulis, long established National Coalition For Men Member and Founding Commissioner for the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men (CSM) along with other CSM Commissioners, legislators, and interested organizations, like NCFM, recently saved the Commission from being closed by New Hampshire’s Legislature. (see article, “NCFM helps save the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men “) .

Somewhere in the battle to save the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men time was found to offer a Fathers’ Day essay contest, another first reflecting a bit of progress in recognizing the importance of fathers and children.

There are two winners for the essay contest “Why My Dad is Important to Me”. They are Grace V. and Morgan M. (last names withheld). Each of them won $100 for their excellent reasons their fathers are important. The letters are below and are well worth reading.

Governor Lynch will present the awards in his office 3:00 PM Thursday, June 23, 2011. Hopefully with a little fanfare and press exposure I hope, especially since this first ever event will be offer great photo opportunities.

Consider a note of thanks to the Governor for helping to elevate the ordinary importance of fathers for children:

NCFM congratulates Grace, Morgan, Mike, the Commissioners, and Governor Lynch for not just caring about fathers, but celebrating fatherhood.

Harry Crouch

President, NCFM
