May 17th, daughters of the senior class of 2017 brought their mothers and mother figures to the 60th annual Mother Daughter Banquet for the third year at Latitude 41 in Mystic, CT.

Class advisor, Ann-Marie Houle, opened up the banquet with a warm hello followed by Jessica Weber sharing a poem. Later, Sally Hinckley, Morgan Floyd, Lily Careb, Sarah Headley, Madisyn Dyer, Emma Miller, and Cameron Dreher all either shared poems, sang songs, and held the superlatives for maternal figures in their lives.

Houle, going on her 4th year as class advisor and 4th year running the mother daughter banquet, explains what it was like planning the event: “I think the hardest part was trying to get the photos in. It makes the night, I think it’s cute to everyone when they were little. The event used to be held at the high school, so by moving it to Latitude 41, which happened three years ago, it was easier. It was more formal.”

“There were probably only twelve girls that did not go. The turnout was huge this year, 143 people were there,” says Houle.

Houle added, “I thought that what made this year special was the fact that we did honor the moms that weren’t there. This class has six girls that moms have passed away, which is a lot, like a lot a lot.”

“This year was like super emotional. The moms were really emotional, everyone was like crying at the apple crisp bar,” Houle states.

Senior Emily Pisani attended the banquet with her mother Lisa Rinato. “I enjoyed spending time with my mom and friends. She (my mom) thought it was really sweet and got kind of sad I’m leaving for college,” says Pisani.

When asked about the best part of the banquet, Pisani explained that it was the fettuccine pasta.

“I forgot to send a picture of me and my mom, so she was a little upset (sorry mom), but it was a very sweet slideshow,” Pisani added.

Overall, the mothers and mother figures all enjoyed the banquet and had a wonderful time spending time with the young women who brought them out.
