Mother’s Day is just a few days away, and the Casa Blanca ballroom was filled with joyous moms on Tuesday, May 9, as they danced their hearts out at a Mother’s Day event hosted by Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar.
In addition to the celebration, the dance served as an important crime prevention initiative. Its primary goal was to keep senior citizens well-informed and protect them from becoming targets of crime. The event organizers took the opportunity to share valuable information with the community, covering topics such as home safety, identity theft prevention, and essential vehicle safety tips.
Among the attendees, one mother named Martha Salinas couldn’t contain her excitement as she hit the dance floor. She expressed her joy and extended warm congratulations to all mothers in anticipation of their upcoming special day.
Salinas enthusiastically stated, “Thank you! Congratulations to all mothers! I wish you an excellent day! Whether or not your children reach out, as long as they are doing well, that’s what truly matters.”
While Mother’s Day in the United States traditionally falls on the second Sunday of May, it’s important to note that in Mexico, it always takes place on May 10th. This contrasting date serves as a significant reminder to honor and appreciate the remarkable mothers in our lives, regardless of geographical boundaries.
As we eagerly approach this cherished holiday, let us celebrate and express gratitude to the extraordinary women who have nurtured us with love, care, and unwavering support.
