Mayor Sheila Dixon Hosts “Mother’s Day on Wheels”
BALTIMORE (May 10, 2009) – Mayor Dixon joined city employees and her family on her annual “Mother’s Day on Wheels” tour throughout the City. The mayor visited four nursing homes and two shelters to bring greetings and city workers offered outreach services and information.
This is Mayor Dixon’s second annual “Mother’s Day on Wheels” tour. A mother of two, Mayor Dixon recognizes the importance of showing appreciation to women on Mother’s Day. Throughout the day, Mayor Dixon thanked the women she visited for giving the gift of a mother’s love and talked about her own mother and the impact she had on her life. “Though my

mother has passed, I carry her love with me everyday. It has inspired my passion for community, for spirituality and for my own family,” Mayor Dixon commented. “That’s why, for me, Mother’s Day is a time of celebration.” Mayor Dixon also encouraged city residents to doing something for a woman who may not be recognized on Mother’s Day, but has made a difference in the life of someone.
