First Friday Allowed Us to Bring Health and Wellness Education to the Community
On June 2, Randi Weist, our Certified Natural Health Specialist, and Nancy Mazariegos, our Durable Medical Equipment Specialist, celebrated “Health and Wellness” in downtown Chambersburg as part of the Downtown Business Council’s “First Friday” event.
The event was a valuable opportunity to introduce ourselves services to new customers while strengthening our relationships with existing ones. As a local pharmacy and compounding center, we understand that healthy individuals make for a healthy community.
Weist and Mazariegos were on-hand with coloring books for kids as well as information and displays about healing salves, diffusers, bone broth and more.
Additionally, we provided information regarding Lyme Disease, and how we can help get patients on the right track using supplements and nutraceuticals.
We also used this opportunity to give people a preview of what they can expect once we complete our upstairs renovation. Soon we will offer on-site massage therapy, ionic foot baths, and even offer a far infrared sauna. The new space will also be used for consultations and education, making it a valuable addition to our traditional and alternative health services.
We were especially proud to sponsor this event because it let us fulfill what we consider to be one of the primary functions of an apothecary. Traditionally, apothecaries had assumed the role of “caretaker of the community’s health.” Apothecaries were places where people gathered for news of the day while having their ailments relieved.
Where better to discuss the health issues that directly affect our community than in the town square on a sunny June evening?
The event, which ran from 5:00-8:00 p.m., also included live music, demonstrations, prizes and more – including a chance to win a prize package worth over $250.
There was even an artist drawing portraits in the square, which our mascot Cappy took advantage of.
