Memories of mom

April 23, 2012 

Few things sum up the affection we feel for our family members better than a simple snapshot, bent around the corners and yellowed with age. Each photo represents a treasured memory, a cherished moment captured in time.

This Mother’s Day, send us a photo of you and your mom and tell us, in 100 words or less, about a special experience you shared, whether it was funny, silly, sentimental or sweet. We’ll review your submissions and select the best to share with all of our readers — in our newspaper and on our website,

Send your photos by email to or by mail to Mother’s Day, Features Desk, The Tribune, P.O. Box 112, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406. The deadline is Wednesday, May 1.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
