Last weekend a group of local ladies got together and celebrated their Mother’s with a surprise early Mother’s Day Brunch that included a Red Carpet with paparazzi photos as the Mother’s arrived at the home of Randy and Gina Gallman-Peterson, who hosted the event.

The idea was the brainchild of hostess Gina Gallman-Peterson, who wanted to do something special to surprise, celebrate and honor Mothers (both living and deceased). To keep the celebration a secret, daughters of the mothers had to tell “little white lies” to get the Mothers to come to the celebration! Many of the Mothers wanted to know the typical questions of, “where they were going and how long they were going to be there and why?”

Shara Mondy, daughter of Mary Mondy exclaimed, “I was so excited when Gina called me and told me what she had planned. I immediately said, ‘What can I do to help’? She told me that she wanted to give the mother’s a ‘gift bag,’ so all of the daughters participated and provided eight gift bags for each Mother, filled with special token gifts that included hand-made bracelets, bath and body products, Jewelry, silk scarves, music CD’s, and even sweets for the sweets!”
