Special to CCN
2009 has been a tough year for many women for a variety of
reasons — divorce, job loss, single moms, financial challenges,
cancer, illness, death of a loved one or caring for a sick or
elderly family member. Women tend to put themselves last and
especially do not take care of themselves in a time of crisis.
New Year — New You! is a community service project designed to
provide selected women an evening of “Health, Healing and Beauty.”
The event is Jan.10 at the Antoine Du Chez Salon and Spa in the
Belleview Promenade from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Through the generosity of
several businesses and wellness providers, this event will provide
a free evening of health, healing, beauty and resources for
selected women who have had a rough 2009. We want to find women who
have not had the time nor the money to take care of themselves.
We want to give these women tools and resources to help them
deal with the stress in their lives. We want to hit a niche of
people that are not served by public assistance and yet cannot
afford to do this for themselves right now. The ultimate goal is
for each woman to leave feeling beautiful, confident, nurtured,
valued and empowered. Hopefully, this “new woman” can make a
difference with their family, friends, neighbors and coworkers.
Potential services offered include: Haircut/style, nails,
massage, Body Talk, Emotion Code, ionic foot bath, energy
kinesiology, inch loss and detox body wraps, and acupressure. There
will be ongoing activities including learning stress relief through
acupressure, laughing yoga, prayer partners and more. A resource
section will have a female financial planner, female mortgage
broker, legal services information and more.
A resource list showing a variety of resources and services
along with some special discount coupons will be provided to all
nominees — even the ones that are not selected to attend the New
Year New You event.

1. Make sure the nominee can attend the New Year New You! Event
on Jan. 10 at 5 p.m. at the Antoine Du Chez salon in the Belleview
Promenade. No childcare or transportation is provided. If you are

transportation and childcare) before nominating. Also, if the
nominee can easily afford the spa and wellness services, please do
not nominate them.

f. If you are nominating someone else, please include your name,
email and phone number.
3. All entries must be received by midnight MT on Dec. 31.
Exact number of winners will be finalized based on nominations
and volunteers. We anticipate helping at least 20 - 30 women at the
New Year New You event, but would love to help more. All nominees
will receive the resource list as well as a coupon sheet (discounts
or referral programs from the people donating their time/services
at the event).
