5 Local Mothers Day Brunch Spots To Celebrate Mom

Don't Forget Mom on Mother's Day, May 12th! This year we are highlighting the best non-Walkerton area spots to take your loved ones to celebrate dear, Mom. The nearest Mother's Day Brunch will be at Swan Lake Resort. The national tradition of Mother's Day actually began in South Bend at the University of Notre Dame dating back to 1904 when alumnus, and administrator, Frank E. Hering, at the University of Notre Dame made a plea to Congress for setting aside a day to memorialize Mothers and motherhood.

Because of him the US Congress made it a holiday in 1911. After, observing a class of Notre Dame students sending home penny postcards to their mothers, Hering, went on to be a vocal advocate for the national Mother's Day movement into the next decade.

Breakfasts, brunches, and excursions may satisfy the celebration for Mom! Get your reservations in now before it is too late? Right here in Walkerton, no one, has been open for a Mother's Day Brunch since "Paulette's Restaurant" at 600 Roosevelt Rd. from 1982 until 1986. The closest to a Walkerton area "Mother's Day" brunch happened when 24 hour Welco's was open. But, that burnt down before Mother's Day, during, Winter of 2005.

Paulette Kennedy, one of the former manager's at the iconic Welco's complex continued the only Mother's Day tradition for as long as she could. That is what led to the Paulette's Restaurant at the Roosevelt & Michigan St. location. That was the last Mother's Day brunch event in town.

Today, no information is available about a Walkerton event since, planners in the vicinity have not posted any details for a Mother's Day happening. If in fact there is one? So, that leaves the 15,000 + area residents to schedule activities out of town.

They must plan the celebration in other communities. Facilities like Tippecanoe Place, and Swan Lake Resort are nearby. Costs for the All-You-Can-Eat Brunches are from $25 -$40. Let's have a look at options from salads, cold bar, seafood, ribs, roasted chicken, salmon. shrimp, prime rib, roast beef, ham, and kid menu's galore! Mom will love the sinful desserts and drinks?
