Mr. Mojo sings for Mother’s Day at Mountain Baby

Mothers and babies were the guests of honour on Saturday at Mountain Baby.

“We’re celebrating all mothers everywhere,” said Judy Banfield, the owner of Mountain Baby, on Saturday at her downtown store, “whether they are biological mothers, adoptive mothers, stepmothers, surrogate mothers, grandmothers, Godmothers, mothers-in-law, aunts, loving cousins, loving friends “just like a mom to me” mothers, and all the nurturing and caring women in the world.

“And we are celebrating our 20th birthday because we want to say thank you to the community for supporting us all this time.

“We have planting — the kids can plant little seeds donated by Georama – and they can build a bug and look at a bug through a microscope.

“And we have two live concerts by Morien Jones, formerly known as Mr. Mojo, one of our wonderful local children’s performers, who wrote a song specifically for Mountain Baby, and which is he going to perform today.”
