The 100th Anniversary of Mother’s Day with a Twist


This year moms who are over the age of 100 will be getting flowers for free from Artistic Flowers, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the day in honor of our mothers. Each mother over 100 will be receiving a free bouquet from this flower shop. Sue Wilson the owner of this store will be presenting the moms with arrangements.

One lady who has gone past the 100 year-old mark is Bernice Williams, from Marion Landing. Her community hosted a huge party for this occasion, with a number of guests, gifts, posters, cards, and even a money tree. She also got a surprise email from one of her favorite football player Brett Favre (Green Bay Packers).

“I don’t feel old.” says Williams, “I feel young inside.” She goes on to say jokingly, “It’s great to be 100, but its getting to the point where it’s almost embarrassing.” She stays busy and alert by playing a number of games, and solving several crossword puzzles daily.

Mothers like Williams will have their bouquets delivered Mother’s Day morning.
