Hi, Mothers of the Main Line! Happy Mother’s Day! Keep going! This is an extremely difficult time and you’re doing it perfectly- even when you think you aren’t. We will get through this together and soon we will be re-opening and starting to get back to normal. When we do, the Kids’ Clubhouse of the Main Line will be there to provide safe and loving care for your 2-10 year olds all throughout the summer to give you a break. Enjoy your special day and check out our Facebook page to find out more details about swinging by the Kids’ Clubhouse to pick up a FREE craft kit!
Now through May 9, when you order a bouquet to be delivered on Mother’s Day, Katie’s Bouquet Shop will deliver a second arrangement to a healthcare professional of your choice, at no additional cost! This is a great way to thank those who take care of all of us.
