The Marchand community’s 37th mother of the year award went to retired community nurse, Alberta Harris.
Annually, the Marchand women’s league selects a deserving mom in the community for the accolade.
On Mothers Day, groups from the Castries East Community presented Harris with gifts and flowers at the Marchand sacred heart parish.
It came as a surprise to Harris.
Although Harris resides at bois d orange, she has attended the Marchand parish for over 50 years.
The retired nurse is especially known for her work with expectant mothers.
Harris still works at the Ti Rocher Health Center and has one son.
She has also been lauded for her work with the less fortunate.
