Happy May and Don’t Forget Mother’s Day!


Hope you’re having a Happy May, everyone!  In honor of Mother’s Day, we have a couple of timely articles for you.  One is Briana D’Andrea’s top seven gift ideas for Mother’s Day in “Mommy Moments.”  The second article is by Carly Cantor in “Teen Talk,” where she talks about the sacrifices that her mother has made and a few more ideas for showing appreciation on Mother’s Day. 

Also see our “AW Spotlight” story this month, “Getting to Know Chip McKenney of the Gay Polo League.”  Julie Khanna interviews McKenney about how he founded the GPL in 2006 and how it’s been growing ever since. 

Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month?  Our “Living Green” writers Tripp and Carmen Eldridge write about how getting closer to nature through Ecotherapy can work wonders for your mental health. 

Meanwhile, see “Cultural Corner” for some beautiful photos.  The Wellington Art Society (WAS) recently presented two new art exhibitions: “Love 4 Art” and “Dazzle.”  Stop by the Wellington Community Center and Village Hall to see the art in person. 

In “Paws-itive Press,” Tricia Roberts gives us some interesting facts about cats, dogs and horses.  Did you know, for example, that dogs sweat only through their paws?  Neither did I. 

Another interesting thing about May (this year) is that Palm Beach County schools get out early.  Did you know that May 26th is the last day of school for students? 

Check out our other articles, our photo galleries and our “News & Event” section too for more great content.  Hope you have a beautiful month!
