The roles our mothers have played in creating a beautiful and vibrant community cannot be overstated. Beyond their own careers and successes, their love and attention can be seen throughout our communities in the quality and success of our youth.
This important tradition started back in 1914 when the U.S. Congress designated the second Sunday in May each year as "Mother's Day." That year, President Woodrow Wilson declared the first official U.S. Mother's Day - then designated an official legal holiday.
On this special day, we also must remember and thank the mothers whose sons and daughters are serving in our nation's armed services. Please also remember the mothers who shoulder the burden as a single parent as their loved one serves our great county.
Happy Mother's Day!
