To all the moms, grandmothers and great-grandmothers, out there: Happy Mother's Day 2016

To all the mothers, grandmothers and those who are honored to be great grandmothers, Happy Mother's Day.

Enjoy this very special day! We wish all of our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers,  a very special Mother's Day.

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.

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.

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!
