Port Washington News' Fathers-of-the-Year 2004 Contest Winners
This year's submissions for our annual Father's Day contest depicted various types of dads. The essays ranged from portraits of traditional kinds of dads (typically those who manage to balance the impossible job of working long hours and making their kids feel special), to extraordinary fathers and father figures who pitched in to help make up for the untimely loss of a parent. Though different in form, however, the content of all of the essays are heartwarming and moving. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did.
