Honor & Remembrance of Mothers at the Reflecting Pool


Location: Reflecting Pool

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to stop by the Hesburgh Reflecting Pool to place flowers in the pool to honor their mothers. Three-thousand flowers will be distributed and floated in the pool in a spectacular heart-shaped display. You will also will be able to sign an oversized Mother’s Day card and take photos in a special mom-themed photo booth. Modern-day penny cards -- the inspiration behind alum Frank Hering's advocacy for a national day of recognition -- will also be available. A nostalgic truck will be on site distributing free ice cream treats. All items are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis so come early. RAIN PLAN: If we have heavy rains, we will potentially move the event to the next day, April 30 at the same time. Watch for an update at calendar.nd.edu if that is the case.
