Milinda Witten, esquire of the Elks, said every mother in attendance will receive flowers.

Brunch costs $12 for adults, $8 for children six to 12 years old, and children five and younger are free.

“Any money we make will go into our charitable events account,” Mrs. Witten said.

During the brunch the St. Maries Rotary Club will present the Mother of the Year award. Mariah Dunham said each year the group asks students in two different grades in the St. Maires school district to write a nomination letter.

Ms. Dunham said a group of Rotary members reads through all the letters and picks out those that stand out. From there, three finalists will be selected. The winner is announced at the Elks brunch at 11:30 The three finalists will receive flowers and the winner receives a clock, handmade by Joe Renaldo.

“If the kids don’t have stage fright, we also have them read the letters they wrote,” Ms. Dunham said.

Additionally, the winners of the Elks Americanism Essay Contest are honored at the brunch and awards are handed out.
