Mother’s Day, known around here as “Put Your Mom to Work Day”, was a spectacular day. We were so happy to see all the loving families stop by for a bite to eat, showing their moms some well-deserved appreciation.
We had carnations handed out to all the moms when they arrived, including two special ladies helping deliver them out – John and Lynn’s mom, Ann Horne, along with retired AMOB family member Miss Julia McCall.
It was a delight to see our Miss Julia. Wow… we all miss her at Cortez. She retired 3 years ago as our Day Host, after working circles around staff a quarter her age! We can’t thank them enough for handing out carnations to all the moms at Cortez and Landside! All moms also had their choice of picking a Mimosa (ideal for those visiting for breakfast or Brunch at the Pier) or a Cup of Soup (a perfect addition to Prime Rib available on Sunday). Here’s a picture of John visiting Ann (on the left) and Miss Julia (on the right).
We also had a raffle going on throughout all locations… one lucky mother was randomly chosen at each of the 4 AMOBs to receive a souvenir gift bag accompanied with a $150 gift card! Linda Hooey was the lucky winner of the Cortez location’s prize! Here she is (pictured below), with our Cortez Manager, the lovely Andi!
We also had amazing staff on deck all day Mother’s Day. Click below to see their smiling faces!
