EDINBURG, Texas — The Museum of South Texas History invites families to celebrate and honor mothers during “Mother’s Day at the Museum” from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 14.
Visitors can handwrite a letter to their mothers at the letter writing station. Complimentary paper, envelopes and postage stamps will be provided, which means letter writers can snail mail a heartfelt thank you to their mothers anywhere in the country. To complement this activity, read two letter samples written by Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Sgt. Alfredo “Freddy” González, who sent letters to his mother, Dolia González, while on two military tours during the Vietnam War.
Mothers will be entertained with serenatas performed by local musicians Texas Sweethearts, a Tejano/conjunto band, and Mariachi Nueva Tradición. These performances begin at 2 p.m. in the Courtyard Gallery—and visitors are encouraged to dance.
Capture the memories made at the museum by visiting the Selfies & More Studio photo booth. Free photo prints to take home and frame and digital copies to share with friends are courtesy of MOSTHistory.
Admission to the museum includes music performances, letter writing activity and a self-guided tour of the Rio Grande Legacy exhibitions. FRIENDS of MOSTHistory enjoy free admission to this program.
For more information, please visit www.mosthistory.org/events or call the museum at 956-383-6911.
This program is made possible by the generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was committed to educational causes in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created by her family to honor her memory and to continue providing educational opportunities for the community.
