Father's Day is just around the corner. Residents love exciting ways for everyone to come together as a community, and this national holiday is no exception. Celebrate the fathers in their lives, and watch resident engagement soar.
History of Dad's Day
This national holiday was first celebrated circa 1910, honoring fathers who had passed after raising families and building communities. In 1966, Lyndon B. Johnson, through an executive order, designated the third Sunday in June as the official day to celebrate Father’s Day. However, it wasn’t until 1972, during the Nixon administration, that Father’s Day was officially recognized as a national holiday.
The history behind this special day shows just how much fathers are needed, appreciated, and that they deserve a day all their own. With Elevated Living’s seamless event management services, residents can receive digital event notifications, register for events they want to attend, and share media directly to your building’s social feed - all from your branded community app. Residents who love to engage in person can now celebrate one of the most important people in their lives - dads!
Spark Up the Barbie!
Ready to host a barbecue? A great way to celebrate Father's Day is by combining the best of summer with the best of good food. Bring everyone together to enjoy the weather and entertain kids of all ages with your property’s outdoor spaces. Add outdoor games, plan themed snacks, and engage the entire family. Food and fun always end Father's Day on a high note for everyone involved. Not sure where to start? Let Elevated Living do the planning, set-up, and hosting so your property team can enjoy the day off with their own dads!
If you are looking for a way to score points with your dads this Father's Day, consider a game day. Snacks, drinks, and a big screen with sports or video games don’t disappoint. The best thing about hosting a game day is that it can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be. Bring in big toys, lawn games, or even vintage pinball machines that can fill up the lobby for one afternoon, and get residents excited as soon as they walk into the building.
Host a party centered around favorite sports teams. Whether it's football, baseball or basketball, encourage sports jerseys and decorate with sports memorabilia. Elevated Living event managers can create anything your property team can dream up!
Families love the nostalgia of outdoor movie nights. The key to a successful movie night is making sure the whole family will enjoy the movie. Snacks and drinks should be well-stocked, make sure there's enough seating for everyone, and the sound system is up to par. If you're concerned that some of your guests may get bored or restless during the film, consider picking one that isn't too intense or complex for younger viewers. Older children should still be able to enjoy it without having too many questions about what's going on in the plot.
Whiskey & Wine Tasting
Whiskey and wine tasting is a popular pastime for many, especially those who enjoy fine spirits. The types of whiskey and wine vary, but their commonality lies in their ability to pair well together. The best way to learn about whiskey and wine is by tasting them for yourself. There are many different types available through our educational events, including locally sourced liquors.
