Mother's Day Message 2020 2

Dear Friends and Neighbors, 

Happy Mother's Day to moms everywhere! Let us reflect on the wise words of Cheryl Lacey Donovan, "Mother is a verb. It's something you do. Not just who you are."

While mothers frequently assume multiple roles, the overwhelming changes to life as we knew it triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic have given rise to unprecedented challenges. Acting as parent, professional, educator, counselor, playmate, chef, gym teacher and maybe more has put many a mom in an unparalleled emotional, psychic, mental and spiritual place. 

This Mother's Day, let us make our family wellbeing a priority and continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines. We can safely express our love and appreciation for those we value most through a variety of virtual gatherings, social media and video messaging platforms. 

I want to take this opportunity to wish all mothers a happy and healthy Mother's Day. We honor you for all the hard work, dedication and sacrifices you make for your children and our community. 

Happy Mother's Day!

Gratefully yours, 

John J. Kennedy
