Mid-Michigan Celebrates Mother's Day

Posted: Updated:
 Mid-Michigan moms were celebrating Mother’s Day all across the area, with plenty to see and do on this sunny day.

Some moms decided to hit the golf course early this morning.

“When you're on the course, you can forget everything else,” said Beverly Prough, mother.  “Your problems, what you’re going to have for dinner. It’s just very relaxing.”

You'll find plenty of moms here at Hawk Hollow golf course today. Moms got to play for free there and the four other courses at Hawk Hollow golf properties.

 “I love to play golf and my husband doesn't mind,” said Lorri Menihart, mother.
“And my daughter was a little upset that we're going to be gone today but that's okay, she knows I like to golf.”


“We're just glad to see the mothers that do make it out and it's fun,” said Alex Coss, general manager at Hawk Hollow & Eagle Eye Golf Properties. “We like to spoil them here so it's a fun day.”

While some moms are teeing off, others are spending it here, at Potter Park Zoo, enjoying some time with their families.

“It’s beautiful, there’s so many people her at the zoo,” said Sherry Crank, mother. “We're just having a great time in the sun and enjoying our family.”

Mom’s also get in free at the zoo and people came by the dozens.

 “It’s a lot busier than it has been the past couple years,” said Carin Speidel, mother from Dewitt. “But it's fun. We always do a picnic in the park and come in for the zoo and get some ice cream.”

No matter where moms spend the holiday---many are grateful for their families on this special day.

“As a mother it's a very special day, its the day i get to celebrate the birth of my daughter who is the most important thing so it is a fabulous day,” said Crank.
