SAFS hosting special 'spa day'

WASHINGTON — Ladies 18 and older can enjoy a special “spa day” in Washington next Friday and be pampered free of charge.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Senior and Family Services building, 211 E. Main St. It will feature the SAFS Fitness For You facility, chair massages by Kim Bowling CMT and Smooth You Med Spa & Boutique, hot tea by Smooth You, hot paraffin hand dip, manicures, a scarf tying demonstration, booths and demonstrations by Mary Kay and Avon representatives, The Taylor’ed Look and by Tavi. There also will be refreshments and giveaways.

“Our goal is to highlight Fitness For You, but it’s also a chance to be pampered in a spa-like environment,” said Jill Cecil, SAFS executive director. “It’s close to Valentine’s Day. It’s a good time to pamper women and show them what’s available.” She said giveaways will include food gift certificates, a by Tavi handbag and scarf, a pedicure at The Taylor’ed Look, a one-month Fitness For You membership and more.

“You don’t need to be present to win,” Cecil said.

The by Tavi scarves will also be for sale at Just For You Day for $10. An arm of the Center for Global Impact, by Tavi opens international markets to poor families in Cambodia. Products by Tavi are produced by women in Phnom Penh struggling with poverty. All profits from the sale of by Tavi products go back to Cambodia, with the women being paid wages, and remaining funds reinvested to expand the program and provide more employment opportunities.

The Fitness For You facility will be showcased, and Cecil hopes women will see what a great facility it is and join.

“It’s only $20 a month,” she said. “There’s no joining fee. You pay for the month you come. There’s no age limit, but the range is about 37 to 87 now.” Cecil stressed that women need to make it a priority to delegate time for exercise and make it a part of life.
