Dear Gents,

Your time is here gentlemen, and you don’t have to be a father to find something you’ll enjoy in these pages.

While we will celebrate the dads in our lives on Father’s Day, June 17, I would like to give a tribute to my own dad. Even though he has been gone for six years, I am still influenced every day by his guiding example of living with faith, integrity, and honesty. He was humble and kind – he loved nature and animals. His family and his farm were his top priorities and he guided us with his moral compass. He was a respected member of his own community, and I know he would be proud that Jeni and I can help make a positive impact on the Parker community, too.

 Since the May issue was all about the ladies, we thought it was only fair the June issue of Parker Lifestyle be dedicated to the gents of our community. Now that you’ve met the female movers and shakers of the community, we’ll introduce you to some influential men in this month’s feature. Learn about what makes them unique and how they’re impacting the community. You’ll probably run into one or several of these powerhouses around town!

Preparing for a night out with the guys? We’ll show you the perfect places in the community to grab a drink, watch the big game or just catch up with pals.

We also introduce you to a local duo who share their favorite things with us. Be sure and check out the Q&A with a true inspiration, local artist, Jay Moore. Finally, we put a spotlight on some great gear to help get you moving and shaking, too. 

Happy Father’s Day and thanks, Dad, for leaving a legacy for your family. We will always strive to follow in your footsteps. 

Happy June, gentlemen! We hope to see you around town!
