Women's Fair 2007 at the V.O. Dobbins Community Center


Women came forward on Saturday, May 12th, to celebrate themselves at "Women's Fair 2007," sponsored by the Junior League of Kingsport. The old Douglass High School gymnasium was alive with activity with exhibits, health screenings and family resource help. The women of our community were also treated to free massages, manicures and skin care, with experts on hand to demonstrate the correct way to apply these techniques to have a lasting, beautiful effect. Nutritional information was also given out, so women of the community can maintain proper dietary levels as they age gracefully.
There were also exhibits on breast cancer detection (so many of our families have been touched by cancer), and lifesaving demonstrations by emergency medical technicials from the Kingsport Fire Department. Victims of domestic violence were also advised in private by the Kingsport Police Department, so that they know where to turn, in case their lives or the lives of their children demand immediate action.
Kids were treated to facing paintings and puppet shows in the Douglass Auditorium by the God's Little People Puppet Team, and door prizes were also awarded in the gym.
There will also be a FREE Men's Health Check-Up Day in Kingsport at 1041 East Sullivan Street on Monday June 11th, with a Women's Check-Up Day at the same location on Monday May 14th. Another Men's Check-Up Day event will be held Friday June 15th in Blountville at 154 Blountville Bypass, and another Women's Check-Up Day will be on Thursday, May 17th, both days at 154 Blountville Bypass. Times are from 9 AM to 3:30 PM on all four days.
If you missed the 2007 Women's Health Fair, please drop by the Men's and Women's Check-Up locations. PLEASE DO THIS FOR YOUR HEALTH!
