As with most everything else in 2020, Mother’s Day brunch at the Senior Center of Jackson Hole looked different. But that’s not to say it was any less special.

As cars lined up for curbside brunch pickup, Senior Center staff — wearing masks and tutus and racing around on roller skates or rollerblades — greeted those waiting with trays of sparkling cider. MADE and local Girl Scouts provided special treats to complement the holiday, and Magnolia Ranch, a floral and event design company hired by The Hole Quarantine, provided fresh flowers.

Most cyclists, walkers and drivers were given bouquets from the little hands of 6-year-old Lucy, 4-year-old Lyla or 3-year-old Leo, under the supervision of their parents, Magnolia Ranch owners Luke and Sami Volcansek.

As Sami Volcansek put it: “I can’t think of anything better than handing out flowers on Mother’s Day.”

Neither can we. Cheers to the mamas of Jackson Hole. We raise a glass of sparkling cider to you.
