And mothers have been celebrated since the time of ancient Egypt.

An Evening with Mummy at RAFFMAJoin RAFFMA, the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, at Cal State San Bernardino on Thursday, May 10, for “An Evening with Mummy.” At the 6-7:30p.m. event in honor of Mother’s Day, families will get a chance to express their love for mum in an Egyptian fashion.
