Its Moms weekend right? Well, technically just Sunday I guess but there’s a whole weekend of things you can do for the Moms in your life and whether they be those who gave you life or those who raised you or those whose life you share, Mothers are to be treasured.
So let’s get on board and involve more thought than a drive by at the floral shop and an equally flowery Hallmark card found among the slim pickings remaining in racks across the county.
Friday at 7:30pm the Dogwood has a rather incredible dance troupe ascending the stage when Wellspring Dance comes to call. If the Mom in your life is an aficionado of dance this contemporary group will explore some variations of the art form that will push the imagination and impress as to the skills and athleticism of the performers. Great way to kick off a spring weekend.
The Stage Door Players in White Cloud are putting on Little Women for the second weekend showing and from what we hear it is a winner. If you’ve never been to the quaint and cozy little theater located just down the main drag from the traffic light, it is truly an interactive experience due to the close proximity of the stage and we have never failed to have an enjoyable time there.
Then there is Sunday.
The Mothers Day brunches abound in our area so we polled our N3 folks and the recommendations were Gala Gourmet in Newaygo and Lakes 23 in Fremont.
Why? Because our people are definite foodies and the menus both promise a sumptuous feast plus each received unanimous approval as to presentation and atmosphere.
Is the Mom a golfer? On Sunday Moms can golf for free at Waters Edge with a paid partner.
For something a bit different this year, the NCCA Artsplace has a great series of classes coming up where your honoree can enjoy a number of different creative outlets taught by artists from the community. Anything from Constructing a Clay Gnome Home and Creating a Fan Carved Wood Bird to Canvas Painting and an intriguing class called Beer & Leather awit her at the Artsplace and if you’re unsure of the class she might want get a gift certificate.
No Moms around? Then take advantage of what we hope will be an outstanding Near North spring day or two and get thee outside for some activity that is not lawncare oriented. Bike, hike, disc golf, regular golf, pickleball, bocce ball whatever your particular passion is this the time we’ve been waiting for.
