CAMP ZAMA, Japan (Nov. 19, 2014) -- The first "Father-Daughter Date Night" was held Nov. 15 hosted by the Camp Zama Protestant and Gospel Chapels at the Camp Zama Community Club, here.

The event coordinator, Maj. Paul McCullough, assigned to Defense Science and Technology Center Far East, said the purpose of the event is to give (fathers) an opportunity to spend some quality time with their daughters, and "to remind fathers of their awesome responsibility."

McCullough said 40 daughters and 28 fathers participated in the event.

Fathers and daughters spent the evening playing games such as "How Well do We Know Each Other," and more. Participants ate dinner and desert, followed by dancing.

Chaplain (Capt.) James Souza, assigned to 35th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion said the event was a nice way to set aside a significant amount of time.

"We celebrated the relationships between fathers and daughters," said Souza.

McCullough's 6 year old daughter, Sarah, said her favorite part of the night was "dancing with (her) daddy."
