Ask Call Federal – Celebrating Father’s Day without Breaking the Bank!

Back to Financial Insights

During our “D.A.D.’s Day” fundraiser last week (with Wes McElroy from Sports 910 The Fan), we also asked our members and staff to take a moment and share a budget-friendly way to celebrate Father’s Day. Here’s a sampling of their answers.

Volunteer to mow the lawn or do other weekend chores to give Dad a relaxing Sunday, – Greg Sisson, Business Intelligence Analyst

Fishing is always a great cost efficient way to spend Father’s day. It’s relaxing while also fun! – A.J. Robertson, Contact Center Manager (and several members!)

Hiking any of the beautiful trails along the Shenandoah Valley with Dad and packing a picnic lunch! – Caroline George, Member Service Consultant

I make dinner for all the fathers in my family on father’s day.  The laughter at dinner is unforgettable. – Anonymous Member, Hanover Branch

I love to have a cook out and play in the pool! My favorite thing is looking at old pictures especially with my kids. – Kayla Pandel, Member Service Consultant

A nice dinner out at a park. – Connie Elam, Member

Create a home video of all the reasons why your dad is special and share it on the big screen for him to enjoy!  When my siblings and I were younger, we would record “talent” shows for Mother’s and Father’s day and we still have the VHS to look back on today.  Memories are priceless 🙂 – Nikole John, Financial Analyst

Thanks to everyone who participated and Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
