We appreciate the Men of Tulsa

Man: One of the definitions on merriam-webster.com is “one possessing in high degree the qualities considered distinctive of manhood (such as courage, strength, and vigor). I believe this along with other qualities is what most of us think about when we think of the men who have made a positive difference in our lives.

In June we celebrate Father’s Day and those men who have been there for us, guided, lectured, and given words of wisdom. For some it may be a father, grandfather, uncle or brother. For others it may be the boss who has been a good leader and mentor, a friend, or co-worker. Men not only make a difference in our personal lives but also in the communities we live in.

We at Tulsa Lifestyle wanted to highlight a few of the men in our community who have positively impacted the lives of the people they touch through their work, activities, causes and passions. They are appreciated and so are all of the men in our community. Maybe you’re a dad changing diapers, the husband who makes dinner, the boss who understands that life happens or maybe you’re the decision maker hiring someone for their dream job;  you’re appreciated and making a difference in our lives and community.

Enjoy the June issue and Happy Father’s Day!
