The Mesquite Elks Lodge #2811 will celebrate Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8 with an appreciation ceremony starting at 11 a.m. at 545 Riverside Rd., Mesquite followed with light refreshments. All Elks members are encouraged to attend and to bring their mother either in person or in spirit. The event is also open to the public and there is no cost to attend.

The Elks ritual service declares that Mother’s Day was established “to honor our Mothers whose influence is a continuous force in our lives. Mothers are more than pictures on memory’s walls. They are the ever-present inspiration at our side, keeping pace with us along life’s winding trail, holding us firm and pure, and making us better and nobler persons.”

It is with those heart-felt sentiments that we celebrate this special day honoring all mothers and encourage all members of the community to either join us at the Elks Lodge or to observe Mother’s Day in their own unique way of thanks to their mother.
