“Untangle Life” at GRMC Women’s Health Focus and Baby Fair

It’s easy for anyone to get tangled up in the busyness of life that we can forget to take care of ourselves as we are trying to take care of everyone and everything else in our lives.

But for one night out of the year, women can take time to untangle and enjoy laughing together. Join more than 500 women at the Women’s Health Focus and Baby Fair. In its fifth year, this GRMC event focuses on women – a fun and educational night out with friends. And, this year will be no exception. The theme, “You: Untangled,” is all about letting our hair down, having fun, working out the tangles of life’s stresses, and learning something about ourselves and our inner beauty.

Our keynote speaker, Pat Wynn Brown, will provide a humorous performance about our love-hate relationship with our hair. She says that her Hair Theater Beauty School is a laughter and story-telling ‘conditioner’ for the tangles of life’s stresses and frets. Humor is an age-defier and a good giggle can erase years off our face. The phases of our hair and lives share a common message for all women. Pat’s message will touch each of our lives.

Young women, new and expecting mothers, as well as grandmothers will find the latest information on pregnancy and babies. Plus, we have excellent door prizes and drawings for those who sign up, like a handmade baby quilt, car seats, and more.

This year we have a new activity related to our theme and speaker – makeovers for six lucky women who purchase their tickets by Sept. 21. Winners will have their makeover during the day prior to our event. We also have local salons who will offer 10-minute hair “up-dos.” These are just quick styles for the evening.

Make plans to join us on Wednesday, October 5, at the Grinnell Newburg High School.

The evening will begin at 4 p.m. with 40 educational booths, retail therapy vendors including The Glass Gift Box and area hair stylists.

Once again, a fabulous buffet meal will be catered by the Mayflower Community with salads, pasta dishes, and incredible desserts.

And we’ve thought of everything, even childcare on site and dinner provided for the little ones over 2, all for $3 per child.

Tickets to the event are $18 and financial assistance is available. Register for childcare at the time of ticket purchase. To purchase tickets, go online here. Tickets are also available at The Glass Gift Box located inside GRMC, Dori’s Fine Fashion and Shoes, and Postels Community Health Park.
