Pioneer Woman Museum Celebrates Mothers with Special Activities

Ponca City, Okla. — Mothers and their families are cordially invited to attend a special celebration honoring all of the "moms" in our life at the Pioneer Woman Museum on Saturday, May 9 from 1 to 3 p.m. Mothers will receive free museum admission on Saturday, May 9 and there will be family friendly crafts along with free refreshments. "Mothers are the foundation of all families. They feed, clothe and take care of us as well as our communities. Mother's Day is one day out of the year where we take the opportunity to stop and recognize our mothers for all that they do as well as all of the wonderful women that have helped shaped us into the people that we are," said Museum Director Robbin Davis. Davis also said that crafting together is an activity that many moms and grandmothers do with their children and grandchildren. "I learned crafting at a very early age right next to my grandmother. Those are some of my earliest and most cherished memories." Free make and take crafts will be included with the day's activities at the museum. For more information about the event please contact the museum at 580-765-6108 or piown@ohistory.org. The Pioneer Woman Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
