 An End to the Modern Mothers Is Not the End of the Friendships

 MM group

I wish I had known more about the Elmwood Modern Mothers sooner.  When I met them they were at the end of their 60 year run.  Their last meeting was held at the Bess Streeter Aldrich House in December.  The house was decorated in part by the Modern Mothers for the holiday season.  They were having a catered dinner and maybe a little wine.  I was invited to come before the meeting and do a story about them for the newsletter.  Erin Andersen, a reporter with the Lincoln Journal Star, was already there interviewing the group. I was happy to get to listen in like a fly on the wall as they reminisced and laughed and even rolled their eyes at each other.  After 60 years they know each other very well.  They began Modern Mothers in a different time than we "modern mothers" know now.  They have experienced, and documented, more than we ever will have the opportunity to do.  The changes over the years took them from a very basic life to a very busy world. The memories that they have are priceless.  Erin Andersen did a fabulous job capturing their story so I will share her story from the Lincoln Journal Star.
