Mother's Day is THIS SUNDAY! Moms are some of the most selfless and hard-working people we know. Many of them don't often get the recognition they deserve, especially in times like these.
During this pandemic, many moms are working 40+ hours a week in addition to homeschooling (some single-handedly), others have had to sacrifice time with their own parents in an effort to keep them safe and healthy. Many women have raised their hand to volunteer to support our community in any way they can, and others are worrying about their adult children from afar when all they want to do is hold them close. Finally, we can’t forget about all of the local mothers who are first-responders sacrificing their own family’s safety to care for those who need it most now. We are all experiencing unique circumstances and deserve to be recognized for our superhero status.
To celebrate the incredible moms in our town, the Anchor has partnered with Hingham Jewelers to honor these amazing women for everything they do.
In these final days leading up to Mother's Day, the Anchor will recognize some amazing moms in our community. Readers were invited to submit a mother in their life to be recognized on the Anchor in the days leading up to mothers day. Of the submissions, five were chosen at random (since all moms are heroes to us!) to receive a beautiful necklace from Hingham Jewelers.
Today, we are proud to announce our third winner.
I’d like to recognize my Mom, Kathy Crowley, as our Superhero on Mother’s Day and every day. My Mom is the leader of our clan, our biggest cheerleader, and role model. is the Public Health Nurse for the town of Hingham, a job that people might not know a lot about. She has worked tirelessly over the years helping so many residents in town in different aspects such as helping seniors who may be house-bound get the resources they need, serving on the Hingham CARES committee for substance abuse prevention, ensuring safety measures are in place for our kids at camps and school, and much more. More recently, my Mom has worked tirelessly with her colleagues at the Hingham Health Department, Hingham Fire Department, Hingham Police and the school system to ensure our town does everything in its power to keep our residents healthy and safe through COVID-19. There is no end of her shift – she may be off of work technically but cares so deeply about everyone she interacts with and about her life-long hometown of Hingham. She keeps a positive, can-do attitude through it all and we are in awe of her. Thank you for being you, Mom, the best role model for your kids and grandkids in the world! We love you and are very proud of you!
