Forrest General's Spirit of Women Sweeteas off to great start

This is a news release from Forrest General Hospital

Forrest General's Spirit of Women hosted a kickoff celebration on Saturday, September 19 to start the new year of Sweeteas activities and to offer a chance for girls to sign up for this fun club!

The Sweeteas Club is designed for young girls in grades Pre-K through 6th grade. The club hosts special events throughout the year, offering opportunities for these young ladies to spend special time with their moms or other female chaperones while learning about the essence of a true Southern Girl – charm, character and charisma, and the art of touching the world with Southern Grace! This club is also designed to help young ladies learn how to take action for their health at an early age and includes expert advice from physicians and other healthcare professionals. Sweeteas are also participants in community events year-round, instilling pride in their community and teaching them they can make a difference even at a young age.

The girls enjoyed having their nails painted by the Spirit Girls, "glittering" their hair, and dressing up for the photo booth among many other fun activities at the event. All of that was followed by a pancake breakfast complete with sprinkles and chocolate chips! PJ's, Pancakes and Pampering was held from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church, Montague Hall located at 115 N. 25th Ave., Hattiesburg, Miss.

"Even the youngest Southern girls possess an innate charm that sets them apart," said Millie Swan, Forrest General's chief marketing and medical staff services officer. "The Sweeteas Club is a great way to encourage young girls to embrace those qualities while offering an opportunity to spend special time with their moms, grandmothers, aunts or other important women in their lives. We hope that all young girls will join the Sweeteas Club and see the wonderful fun it brings!"
