Thank your dads

ALL young boys and girls look up to the father figure in their life and The Gladstone Regional Council has found the perfect way to acknowledge all their hard work.

“Thanks Dad” is a nationwide photo competition to show fathers how much they have done for the world and how much they mean to their families.

One entry in the competition is a photo of two-year-old Jack Barnsley and his grandfather.

With his brother Jayden, 10, and his sister Abbey, 8, Jack hopes they can win for their grandfather whom they regard as a very special person.

Jayden said he loved his grandfather because he was active and fun to be with and he always spent a lot of time with all the children.

“He takes me bike riding and fishing. Every year he takes me to the HookUp and he also likes to build things with us,” Jayden said.

The children’s mother, Kylie Barnsley, said it was a great way to let a special man in your life know he was doing a great job.

With the competition now in full swing all entries can be viewed at the Gladstone City Library or online at www.thanksdadphotos.org

The competition winner will be announced in August.

For further details on the local competition contact Lisa Ryan at the Gladstone City Library on 4976 6400.
