We had some wonderful letters from proud daughters about their amazing Dads. It was a tough decision, but we couldn't resist lovely Olivia's hand written note. One thing is abundantly clear - Daughters in the Okanagan sure love their Dads!
Olivia May Salmon - Aged 9 3/4
From Mum - Mia Salmon
My daughter Olivia (on the left) wrote the above story about her Dad, Matthew Salmon. Her Dad is always getting told he deserves a medal by people when we are out, as you can see he already has lots of medals from his time in the Army! I think he would say being a dad to these 3 girls is the hardest job though!

Congratulations to the runners up and to all who entered. In our book - er sorry - magazine! You are all #1 Dad's. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
My dad is THE most amazing dad in the world. He's my best friend, role model & my hero. No matter what's happening, there's no doubt, my dad will be there. I can count on him anytime for anything at all. We laugh together, cry together & talk about everything. We've gone through a lot of ups and downs, good times & hard, & if there's one thing I know, it's that I wouldn't be here without him. I don't know how I got to be so lucky to have him as my dad, but I'm beyond blessed & thankful. I couldn't be more proud to call him my dad! He'll never know how much he means to me, or how much he's done for me, & there's no way I could eve thank him enough, but I will forever continue to tell him how lucky I am, and how much I love him.
