Eagles visit the home of Anna Jarvis for special presentation

WEBSTER—The Anna Jarvis Birthplace Museum was recently visited by the Clarksburg Eagles Club for a special presentation.

According to Museum Curator Olive Ricketts, representatives from the club made their way to Webster, to the historic home of Mother’s Day founder Anna Jarvis, to resent a plaque to the organization, as well as a check.

“Each year, the Clarksburg Eagles Auxiliary 2353 selects a Mother of the Year, and they presented us with a plaque honoring those devoted mothers that they have selected to date,” she revealed.

“The state Eagles Club also selects a Mother of the Year and their names are added to a plaque. That plaque is on display at the International Mother’s Day Shrine,” Ricketts added.

During their visit, Theresa Gibson, Marion Post and Christina Moneypenny donated the commemorative tablet to Ricketts, along with a donation check for the museum for the organization to use as they see fit.

“We were so happy to have the ladies join us at the home of Anna Jarvis, and so close to Mother’s Day,” she said. “Their donation will be put to good use and we will use the money for the upkeep of the museum.”
