Every Woman’s Expo set for Saturday
Oct 24, 2012 12:00 am
Included in an ever-growing list of presenters, exhibitions and more at the second annual Every Woman’s Expo will be a chance for those attending to kick up their heels…literally.
The Saturday event, sponsored by First Freedom Bank and University Medical Center and held by The Lebanon Democrat, will feature demonstrations on kick boxing, self-defense training, martial arts, Pulse training and dancing, according to Lebanon High School cheerleader coach Amanda Hargis.
The event benefits the Lebanon cheerleader squad. Hargis said the money raised would be used for mats and to fund trips to competitions.
“The Lebanon High School cheerleaders are excited to be part of an event, which highlights differing factors of importance to many women,” Hargis said. “We hope that the day will be filled with learning and laughter for all attending.”
Hargis said demonstrations on tap include a Pulse training seminar with Diane Anderson, an Asante make-up clinic, kick boxing from Sports Village, a self-defense seminar, martial arts from Success and dance with Ali Lannom.
The expo will also feature seminars every half hour throughout the day from motivational speaker and local coupon expert Ann Haney
Haney will discuss topics, including "The 1-2-3 's of Successful Couponing,” "Maximizing Savings While Minimizing Time," "Discovering Drug Store Rewards For Dynamic Savings” and "From Clipping Coupons To Debt-Free Living.”
Haney, a mother of six, said her passion for coupon clipping began three years ago as a way to offset effects of the recession. Like most of the American workforce, Haney's husband, who is in the construction industry, experienced a financial setback.
Instead of approaching the obstacle burdened with worry, Haney was proactive and looked for ways to do more with less.
"I heard that couponing could save a lot of money. It saved my family $800 a month," she said. "Basically, that would make a house payment. I spend $60 a week for eight people, which is phenomenal."
First Freedom Bank will sponsor Haney at the Every Woman’s Expo.
“We are proud to sponsor Ann; she brings a wealth of knowledge and can relate to her audience because she knows from experience the struggles of financial difficulties,” said Maliea Oakley, First Freedom Bank senior vice president and retail division manager. “Her goal is to empower people and teach them tools to achieve financial success.”
In addition to financial tips from Haney, a number of health topics will be discussed at the Every Woman’s Expo. According to University Medical Center director of community and volunteer services Jeannie Farley, a number of hospital experts will be on hand to present information and answer questions.
Radiologist Dr. Michael R. Couden will present a seminar on uterine fibroid embolization, a less invasive alternative to hysterectomy. Presenting “Things every woman needs to know about her body” will be Dr. Clainda Burton-Shannon with Women’s Wellness of Lebanon. Dr. Alisa Bowerstock with Women’s Health Clinic will present “The answers to the questions you were afraid to ask.”
UMC Surgical Services Director Kathy Romero will present a discussion on the surgical solution to weight loss from a patient’s perspective. Radiologist Dr. Lucy B. Spalluto will speak on women’s imaging.
The expo begins at 9:30 a.m. and will wrap up about 1:30 p.m. in Lebanon High School’s common area and cafeteria.
