It’s June. That means summer vacations begin, festivals kickoff, Pride and Juneteenth are around the corner, and it seems like everyone is hosting everything during your weekends off. Then in the middle of it we have Father’s Day. We understand that Father’s Day is only one day out of this jam-packed month, but we’d miss an excellent opportunity not to celebrate it to the fullest. Here’s what’s in store:

Changing Station Pick Up – June 14
We’re at the final leg of our partnership with Columbus City Council for the Changing Table Accessibility Grant as part of our Dadvocate for Change campaign. 130 changing stations will be installed into small businesses throughout Columbus and in Parks & Rec. restrooms that do not have them. On this day from 1-6 p.m. the businesses will be picking up their changing stations. We'll also be recording a live episode during that time with businesses, councilmen and whoever stops by.
Father’s Eve – June 17
Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 17 from 7-9 p.m. We will be hosting Father's Eve at Echo Spirits Distilling Co. At this event we will host a mini diaper drive, share our final numbers from our partnership with Columbus City Council and simply celebrate fathers, papas, uncles, and parents.
Weekly Podcast Releases
As always, we have special episodes dropping each week that will leave you feeling inspired and ready to step up your dad game. Upcoming we are featuring some pretty cool guests, including the host of the number one fatherhood podcast in the world, The Dad Edge and the founder of the Dad Caucus in Congress.

CBUS Dads is a community of central Ohio area dads balancing an active lifestyle with being an involved parent. A Saturday for us may involve enjoying morning t-ball, lunch at a new local spot and an evening at a summer festival with our families. We may live downtown, in the suburbs or somewhere between, but our common thread is that we continue to experience the community we love - now as parents.
