OK, gentlemen. You’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Ladies issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue, celebrating all of the influential men in our lives and in our community.

Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, and with the summer season underway, the long, sunny days can be filled with backyard cookouts, baseball games, camping trips, fishing excursions and so much more.

To gather information for this issue, we looked to the experts: the men of Parker! You might even recognize a few faces. Find inspirational life lessons from Parker’s Men of Influence, some great reads recommended by a business coach and a new eatery—yes, real men eat crepes! We’ve also included a slick classic car made restored to be driven.

And whether you are looking to make a difference at home or to literally change a nation, as our photographer, Roger Ballard, has chronicled in his journey to Rwanda, this issue might spark your own vision about how to help our community and beyond.

Men, we salute you for your giving hearts! So, gents, crack open a cold one—and enjoy June—because this month is all about you!
