The 12th Annual Women's Expo is this weekend! On Saturday February 20th the Center of New Hampshire Radisson Hotel at 700 Elm St. is hosting an expo for women from 10AM to 4PM, featuring 120 area vendors. The vendors will have information on their companies' products and services and some have merchandise for sale.
The Expo this year will be featuring "20 Outstanding Women" selected from the WZID/Hannaford contest of the same name. The winners are from all walks of life and backgrounds, each finding a need to fill in the New Hampshire area. These women all have busy lives and many started community based groups targeting problems such as homelessness, hunger and literacy to name a few. They are area moms, nurses, teachers, clergy, volunteers and care providers and just might be your next door neighbor. Each winner has won a $100 prize and will be introduced at the Expo starting at 2 PM. Stop by to meet them and celebrate their great stories.
Also author and stress management expert Loretta LaRoche will be the speaker at 12:30. She has appeared on PBS in six specials, using stress management techniques and humor to entertain and enlighten viewers. She is the author of seven books and is internationally known. Her newest book Lighten Up is about weight loss and stress and was released in August 2009.
Other fun events going on at the Expo include fifteen psychics who will be doing personal readings at the show. There will be a wine sampling booth if you need a little refreshment.
Tickets are $10 per person and are available online at http//:www.wzid.com. Get together with your friends, and have a fun, relaxing and informational day at this one day event at the Radisson.
