(The following is a press release from Forrest General Hospital.  Visit www.forrestgeneral.com/spiritofwomen or e-mail Breanne.gaubert@forrestgeneral.com for more details.)

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (August 16, 2016) – Forrest General's Spirit of Women will host a kick-off celebration on Saturday, September 24, to start the new year of Sweeteas activities and to offer a chance for girls to sign up for this fun club! Young ladies are invited to join the fun, kicking off the new-year at ACE Cheer Company from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. 

The Sweeteas Club, a branch of Forrest General's Spirit of Women, is designed for young girls in grades Pre-K through 6th grade to teach them social skills that will follow them into their adult lives. All current Sweeteas and their moms or female chaperones are invited, plus anyone interested in joining the Sweeteas Club in 2016! More information about Sweeteas will be provided during the event. The kick-off event is FREE, and yearly dues of $15 will be collected at the event. Sweeteas will receive a t-shirt and will enjoy activities such as bi-monthly meetings, tea parties and riding in the Halloween parade.

In addition to allowing the girls to spend more time with other children and the important women in their lives, the club helps 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 Sweeteas Club is a great way to encourage young girls to embrace the innate charm and Southern grace they possess while offering an opportunity to make new friends and spend special time with their moms, grandmothers, aunts or other important women in their lives. The social skills they learn through Sweeteas will be invaluable to these young ladies as they continue through life," said Millie Swan, Forrest General's chief marketing and medical staff services officer.

To participate in the kick-off event, rsvp to Breanne Gaubert, Spirit Girl and Sweetea Coordinator, by Monday, September 19, at 601-288-1306 or Breanne.gaubert@forrestgeneral.com. For more information about the Sweeteas Club, visit forrestgeneral.com/spiritofwomen .
