Prescott Does Mother’s Day

Monday May 6, 2019
At Dorn Homes we like to think of ourselves as a family, a big and growing family, but family nonetheless. Families support one another, trust one another, and are there in times of need. That’s something to be celebrated. And what better way to celebrate family than by spending time with the people we love doing the things we love? So we’ve put together an itinerary of things to do on this upcoming Mother’s Day to show the moms out there just how much you care.
