Mother’s Day solutions

What do you do when you have two mothers, two sisters who are mothers, two friends who are mothers and you want to spend Mother’s Day with each of them?

What could have been the mother of all problems was easy for Cathy and Frank Feeney of Hurlin Smith Road. They hosted their second annual Mothers Day brunch on Sunday, May 8. Fifteen family members and close friends enjoyed a buffet brunch, mimosas and a combination Mother’s Day and birthday cake, as Cathy’s mom, Mary Lou Fraser of Gorham celebrated a birthday on May 9.

In addition to Fraser, the guest list included Frank’s mom, Corrinne Feeney of Gorham; Cathy’s sister and brother-in-law, Peggy and Bob Staab of Gorham, and their two children, Colin and Erica; Frank’s sister and brother-in-law, Darrin and Bob Henckel of Limington, with two of their three children, Matthew and Evan, while their older son, Ryan, was working and unable to attend; and family friends Claire Andrews of Scarborough and Mary Anne Alhamdany of Gorham with her adorable niece Zaynab Alhamdany, who will soon be 2 years old.

Even though it was a dreary rainy day, Cathy said everyone had a wonderful time. She said good food, good people and lots of love made the day brighter.
