On May 12th we celebrated Mother's Day with a special group of mothers who were skyping with their children serving overseas in the armed forces. Mix 107.9's Morning Team, Hanson & Verzoni, were there to celebrate the day with our specials guests Congressman Mike Michaud and Colonel Mosher.
We were so pleased that everyone that came to celebrate with us was able to get time to speak with their loved ones serving.
Hanson & Verzoni kicked off our celebration with a short speech thanking everyone who came with our special guests...
Congressman Mike Michaud of the 2nd District of Maine joined the mothers to show his support for our troops and veterans.
We also had Colonel Mosher come and show his support for the mothers. In his own words, even the hardest soldiers need their mom. Very true. Of course a Colonel shouldn't be confused with a Corporal right Jay?
We were so glad that many family members came to show their support for mom, plus have their chance to speak with a loved one that was away.
A soldier's first glimpse of his new niece! How sweet!!
Some mom's were huge fans of Hanson & Verzoni and jumped at the chance to join them on air for a live set. Who knows what could happen if you join us on our next excursion!
Jay went into sweetheart mode and was making sure all the moms were well taken care of. This mom drove all the way from Ensfield to join us and we had another from Caribou. Just knowing we could touch lives from so far away made everything so much more than worth it for all.
We would like to thank all those who came out to support our friends as well as The Senator Inn and Spa in Augusta, Flo's Flowers, and ColorTyme for helping make this possible.
