PURPLE BALLOON LAUNCH AT 2:00 P.M.​​​

The Men’s Educational Support Association (MESA) welcomes Fathers, Children and their guests to participate in
MESA’s 24th Annual Father’s Day Picnic.
In recognition of Canadian Fathers and their contribution to the family and to Canada, MESA is proud to honor fathers who sacrifice their own interest and jeopardize their own safety and life to offer emotional and financial stability to their families.
There will be a display of **eighty Purple Balloons** at 2:00 pm in support and solidarity of Fatherhood.
The display of the Purple Balloons is being done in conjunction with Father’s Day celebrations around the world and to raise awareness about Fatherhood.

The symbolic display of eighty balloons is to signify the approximate number of 8000 divorces that happens in Alberta every year.

A black balloon will also be displayed in support of separated fathers and children who are attempting to maintain a meaningful relationship.
Children are encouraged to write a message of appreciation to fatherhood and put it on the balloon. Each balloon will bear a printed message:

KIDS NEED FATHERS … NOT VISITORS

“The best parent is both parents” children need two parents in their lives. Governments and their agencies, public policy and Family Law should be supportive of Equal Shared Parenting, the family and every parent who wants to be one. The Government of Canada introduced proposed amendments to the Divorce Act, but is omitting or neglecting to include Equal Parenting as the core solution to divorce.

FATHERS MATTER!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY​​​
