Thanks Mom!

the first Mother’s Day celebration called Mother’s Day Work Club to help local mothers learn how to care for their children. In 1868, she then organized Mother’s Friendship Day, where mothers would gather with former confederate and union soldiers to promote resolution. In 1870, suffragette and abolitionist JuliaWard Howe wrote The Mother’s Day Proclamation to promote peace. Howe campaigned for aMother’s Peace Day to be celebrated on June 2 each year. Juliet Calhoun Blakeley inspired a local Mother’s Day inMichigan in the late 1870’s. Soon after, Mary Towles Sasseen and Frank Hering worked to organize a Mother’s Day in late 19 th and 20 th centuries. The official Mother’s Day celebration began in the 1900’s with the help of Anna Jarvis, daughter of Anna Reeves Jarvis, after the death of her mother in 1905. Although never married and without children, Jarvis wanted to honour the sacrifices that mothers made for their children. Through Jarvis’ efforts, President Woodrow Wilson officially establishedMother’s Day as the second Sunday inMay in 1914. Canada adopted the idea around the same time. Jarvis soon became disgusted with the commercialization that camewith the celebration and boycotted the day, lobbying the government to remove it from the calendar, and even going so far as to launch lawsuits against groups using Mother’s Day to sell their wares. ModernMother’s Day celebrations continue to honour mothers and their efforts through flowers, cards, and gifts of all sorts. Although it is big business for a lot of people, it’s not always about the business. “Mother’s Day is always busy, but over several days, not like Valentines Day that is one big day,” said Kerri Albright, owner of Jade Garden in Vankleek Hill. “It gives us more time to talk with the customers. It’s a really happy time.” Albright bought the business on High Street a few years ago with the thought of family in mind. With the help of Jill Crosby, local artist, and family members, the business is a success. “Jill runs the show while I am busy with family things, and off onmaternity leave,” said Albright with a smile. “Mymom is a big part of what makes this business go around, too. Without family help, this would not be possible. As much as I love the business, I am a family first kind of girl.” Albright has several familymembers that are local business members, such as her husband, Chance Albright, who runs Hunter’s Plumbing, and sister Heidi Smith, who operates Heidi’s Hair Salon, all with the thought that family comes first, and thanks to mom.

for my mother, and that is what I am teaching my boys.” For more than 150 years, kids from all over have been celebrating their moms on Mother’s Day. However, for the person who created Mother’s Day as we know it, it was all a big mistake. According to, in the early 1860’s, Anne Reeves Jarvis fromWest Virginia organized

“A text or email just won’t cut it,” said Sara Baxter, Chute-à-Blondeau resident andmother of three boys, ages 13, 11, and 6. “For everything she’s done for you through the years, the least she deserves is a phone call. It’s not about the gifts, it’s about being there. That is what I do
