Mother’s Day weekend is a perfect time to treat mom to a special tea party in her honor at Magness Library.
The event is this Saturday, May 11, at 11 a.m.
“Let mom know how awesome she is,” said Magness Library director Brad Walker. “Come celebrate Mother’s Day with us. Daughters of the American Revolution will be providing the food.”
The event is free, but registration is requested so enough food will be available. A signup sheet is located in the Children’s Department of the library.
A quote by Jennifer Quinn says, “Until one becomes a mother, no one can ever tell you what it will feel like to love someone else so deeply and profoundly that you will rejoice when they rejoice, ache when they ache, feel what they feel – even without ever speaking a word.”
Mother’s Day has been celebrated in the United States since the 19th century, with the official holiday evolving in the early 1900s.
Mother’s Day is always on the second Sunday in May and is widely celebrated as a special day to honor all mothers, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
