I (Laura) would like to personally invite you to Memories on Mackinac – a Mother-Daughter Event at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island! Mothers and Daughters of all ages are invited to this one-of-a-kind event at this one-of-a-kind location June 23-24, 2019 as I host a women’s event where you will make memories on Mackinac.

There is a special bond between a mother and daughter and I and want to help you Celebrate that relationship.  From the moment you step off the ferry until the clip-clop of the horse-drawn carriages fades away, you will be creating fabulous memories that will last a lifetime.

Set at beautiful Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan your memory making trip begins with a fabulous reception hosted on the porch of Grand Hotel.

“Dress-up” for dinner at Grand Hotel’s fabulous Salle à Manger.  You will feel like a princess during this 5-course dining experience.

Enjoy fun-filled sessions that will have you laughing till your sides hurt and shedding tears as we bare our souls over the joys and challenges of this special mother-daughter experience.

Spend the afternoon at the hotel pool, riding a bike or a horse or touring Mackinac Island.  Your Mother-Daughter memories will last a lifetime!

Please join us!

Special Guest, Leanne Morgan

Leanne Morgan exudes southern charm. She is a naturally funny storyteller who gives an honest look at suburban life and the challenges of keeping her husband happy while juggling kids, dogs and cheerleading camp at the same time she’s racing to get her hair highlighted, have a colonoscopy and join weight watchers for the 7th time!  Leanne will take you on a hilarious journey through motherhood and beyond as she finds comedy amidst the chaos.
