Mothers Day: Langley events for her special day

Is Mom a green thumb?

Several local events on the Mothers Day weekend are garden-oriented.


The Langley Centennial Museum invites kids to make a gift for mom.

“Our mothers do so much for us on a daily basis and this program is a way to give back through showing appreciation for them,” said Township Arts and Culture programmer Maggie Lukban. “Kids and their moms will enjoy spending time together while creating a beautiful flower pot and then taking it home to watch it blossom.”

Plant a Posy: Mother’s Day Fun runs at the museum, at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley, on Saturday, May 9, with a morning session from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. and an afternoon session from noon to 1 p.m. The cost is $15.75 per child, plus mom.

To register in advance, drop in to any Township community recreation facility, or call the museum at 604-532-3536.

Seedy fun
