A Brief History of Mother’s Day

“The official Mother’s Day holiday arose in the early 1900’s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis.  Anna began a massive letter-writing campaign to newspapers and prominent politicians urging the adoption of a special day to honor motherhood. By 1912, many states, towns and churches had adopted Mother’s Day as an annual holiday, and Jarvis had established the Mother’s Day International Association to help promote her cause. Her persistence paid off in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure officially establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.” (1)

Traditions within families on the special day of honor may vary for each family, but the fact remains, our Mother’s are honored and remembered!

Promontory Grandmother, Blayne Harper, has been able to enjoy two very energetic and creative little girls. Originally from Boston and Texas, the Harper family moved to Promontory five years ago to be able to live closer to their family.  Blayne says their family’s favorite Promontory activities include taking the family to the Shed Clubhouse for dinner, hiking with their dogs and having their grandchildren be able to partake in the activities at the Kids’ Cabin. Spending time with the family at Promontory truly makes every day Mother’s Day for Blayne.

Susan Giusto is another Promontory mother who knows the blessings of being a mom! The Giusto family live in Laguna Beach full time and have been enjoying their second home, in Promontory, year-round since 2005. Susan describes her daughters as “two young women growing up on horseback, acting and dancing.” Promontory offers all of the experiences that the Giusto’s love to do. Susan writes, “we love waking up and seeing the deer and elk out of our back windows along the Pete Dy Canyon Gold Course. We appreciate that we can go on a walk just about anywhere on any given day. We love the lazy days with a slower just as much as the social ones of being a club member.  We will always be grateful we found Promontory while our girls were young. They were able to spend time at the Kids’ Cabin with Kathy Carr, play tennis with Adam Huebner and spend long days at the pool as well as the equestrian center. Our kids have the best memories of their childhood years at Promontory.”

With so many amenities and majestic views, it’s no wonder Promontory is a special place for all of our families.

A quote from Rudyard Kipling states,

“ God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers”

is expressed with true love and devotion for Mothers everywhere.
