Mayor Apatang joins constituents in celebrating Father’s Day

SAIPAN Mayor David M. Apatang will celebrate Father’s Day with the rest of the community this Sunday.

“Greetings to all the fathers in Saipan and in the CNMI, and to those who are away from home for whatever reasons,” he said.

The mayor said, the role of fathers in the family, in the community, and everywhere else is one that involves assuming great responsibilities.

“Our family, members of our community, our youth, and friends often look to us as a beacon of cohesiveness, strength, and perseverance,” Apatang said.

He said fathers must consistently live up to their commitments, and ensure that they leave a path for those who follow so they can have a better life and a safe place to raise a family.

“To all fathers who are active members of the United States armed forces, the National Guard, and Reserve, we wish you a very cheerful and memorable Father’s Day,” said the mayor, a Vietnam War veteran.
