How to create and Host a MDAH event
One of the core purposes of the MDAH organization is setting up social events. These events bring kids and dads together, dads together known as a Dads Night Out (DNO), or whole families. We encourage all MDAH members to consider hosting events and providing ideas for events that they would like to attend. This document provides some helpful guidance for MDAH member to host events.
