Spirit of Women: Girls Day Out - WHLT 22 Connecting the Pine Belt

Spirit of Women: Girls Day Out

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The ladies part of Forrest General's Spirit of Women got the chance to be pampered this morning at their annual event, Girls Day Out.

"We encourage women to take care of their health because typically, they try to take care of every one else in the family," said Spirit of Women coordinator, Kathy Emmons.

"If you're not healthy how can you take care of someone else," she said.

She said that's why they have events like Girls Day Out.

"The ladies have been shopping, pampered with hairstyles, she said.

"I got the most wonderful massage, said Brenda Morgan, a participant of Spirit of Women for several years.

"I think it really gives women more awareness of themselves," Morgan said.

She became aware of something more serious today.

"I did find out some other little health screening problems that I'm going to look into," she said.

While the ladies were having fun, they also got a chance to get health screenings.

"We had blood pressure monitoring, and many other screenings, Emmons said.

Emmons said the test could push the women to healthier lifestyles.

    Normally when you do a story about a shark you do a stand-up on the beach but not this time.  See these fishermen don't want to tell me where their fishing hole is.  It's not just to protect their spot
