Making the case for Mother of the Year in Millis
Since then-recreation director Janet McCarron started Millis’s annual Mother of the Year contest in 1990, it has grown from a small activity generating just a few essays to a yearly tradition where more than 100 essays are submitted. Some kids write their essays at home on their own, some write them as part of elementary school assignments. Says current recreation director Kris Fogarty: “The essays are all so different. We look for something that pops out at us, something a little different that shows some real thought,” she said.
