To honor the women who have become the rocks of our homes in this time of uncertainty, the City of Las Cruces will host a virtual Mother’s Day Celebration at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 10.
The virtual event is organized by the Quality of Life Department as part of its Las Cruces Cares initiative and will be broadcasted on the City’s Facebook page @CityofLasCruces.
“Because we understand that this Mother’s Day won’t be the same, we wanted to offer an option to celebrate MOM while observing the social distancing requirements,” said Lynn Gallagher, Quality of Life Director.
On April 22, New Mexico’s Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham extended the Emergency Public Health Order through May 15. The order continues to limit gatherings or five or more people along with the six-foot distance requirement.
“Even though we are apart, we can still be together and honor the women who have loved, mentored and mothered us,” Lynn Gallagher added.
The virtual celebration will consist of prerecorded material, including music performances, kid friendly Mother’s Day gift crafts, exercises for Moms and Grandmas, family friendly cooking recipes, some of the activities will be in Spanish.
