Womens Health & Fitness Expo 2012Hudson Valley Horrors | Sunday, June 10th, 2012 | No Comments »
As a member of the Hudson Valley Horrors Roller Derby League, we feel giving back to the community that supports us is very important. On May 19th, 2012 a few of us Volunteered to help out at the Womens Health Expo in Kingston.
R. Sovertits, S. Scar Go and myself (Jo-HELL NO) arrived at the Expo around 11:30-ish. It was a beautiful, hot day and the parking lot at C. Clifford Miller Middle School in Kingston was packed with cars and the school was humming with women & children of all ages and backgrounds. We met Victoria (Director of the Expo) and she put us to work. R. Sovertits worked the Registration table handing out the Expo goodie bags, T-Shirts and our Derby Try-Out Flyers (Try-Outs are in August 2012). S. Scar Go and I ran the Spa table upstairs.
The Vendors lined every hall wall, the gymnasium and the lunch room. There was so much information for WOMEN in one place, I was amazed. You could get a massage, acupuncture and energy healing at the Spa. There was a vendor next to us selling Stay-Cool cloths similar to Cooldannas (very awesome). There were Seminars & Workshops, Healthy food cooking demos, exercise and fitness demos or you could view the art gallery and take a stroll thru the Book Nook which hosted the latest books on Womens health and fitness (take care of yourselves, ladies, there is only one YOU in this world). Oh, and the winner from NBC’s Biggest Loser Season 12 was there.
S. Scar Go and I didn’t have time to walk around, until we were relieved at 3:pm, since our table was so busy scheduling people for massages/acupuncture/energy healing. We met so many women, from all over the area, coming together to find something new whether it was energy food/bars, inner healing, cancer information or just something to do for themselves that day.
It was a fun, relaxing AND informational day. I can’t wait for next years Womens Health Expo!! I’ll definitely arrive early to check out ALL the vendors. A HUGE THANK YOU to Victoria and all the people that made the Womens Health Expo 2012 a success!!
We received this a few days later in our inbox (thanks so much!!)…
Once again – The Hudson Valley Horrors ROCKED!!!! Wow, how grateful I am to have your team there – so enthusiastic, fun and smart! You were all so busy with other commitments (a double-header!) but you made the time to be a part of the Expo and your help is appreciated more than you know.
Many, many thanks, ~ Victoria
