Rivertown Retail has you covered for a (stay at home) guide to Mother’s Day-trip
The second Sunday in May is dedicated to the celebration of motherhood.
It’s a time to express our love and gratitude for all mothers and mother figures.
In the face of crisis and quarantine, Moms of all kinds still find a way to make everyone feel cherished. Let’s do the same for her.
To show our appreciation, we’ve pulled together a suggested Mother’s Day schedule that the mama’s can get behind.
Coffee from Bunbury’s Coffee Shop
Start her special day with an early morning specialty latte from Bunbury’s Coffee Shop in Piermont, NY. Open 8am-1pm.
Preorder by calling (201) 925 8257, pick up on yellow bench.
Yoga with Peace in Piermont
Next up is a relaxing virtual Yoga session at Peace in Piermont
Mother’s Day Yoga, Mindfulness + Support Circle 8:30-9:15am / 8:30-9:15pm
This event is $15 and is limited to ten mamas/step-mamas! It’ll be a fusion of gentle stretching, intention setting, and celebration. Visit the Peace in Piermont website to register or explore more options
