At 10:30 o’clock, May 12th. man of the people of Weldon community assembled at Alabama church to celebrate “Mother’s Day”. To say that it was a success in every way only expresses it in a small degree. The songs, recitations, and addresses were well rended makes us appreciate Mother more and helps us realize more fully what mother means to the world.
Many nice things were said of the programme and the hearty cooperation of some of the Baptist people helped to make it a success. After the programme was finished a great feast was spread in the shade of those beautiful trees and all had a good social time while partaking of the many nice things to eat.
After the noon hour was over the people reassembled at the Methodist church for singing. After singing awhile Rev. Moreland, Pastor of the Methodist church, paid a great tribute to our Mothers.
When these services were ended all went home feeling that it was good to be there.
May all of of us be constrained to lead better Christian lives and many mothers wield a grater influence for good on the lives of their children.
