WORTHINGTON - The Globe hosts its 12th annual Women’s Expo Health & Home Show this Saturday. Running from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Minnesota West Community and Technical College, the women’s expo boasts 53 booths from local businesses and organizations.

“We've had some of the same loyal exhibitors here from our very first event and find it refreshing to continually have new ones waiting to get in,” Globe Publisher Joni Harms said of this year’s variety.

“We are so pleased to have our title sponsors - Avera Medical Group-Worthington, Minnesota West Community and Technical College and Sanford Worthington,” Harms added. “They have been the cornerstone of this event from day one, and we are so grateful for their commitment and support.”

Globe Advertising Manager Roberta Fultz agreed.

“We're so grateful to Avera, Sanford and Minnesota West for sponsoring the event - it wouldn't be possible without their help,” Fultz said.


The Globe and its sponsors put on the event each year to exhibit resources, services and products available in the community. It gives the public the opportunity to interface with businesses one-on-one, ask questions and learn about what each organization has to offer. They can also go ahead and give the products a try.

“The Expo continues to be popular with the women in our community,” said Fultz. “Where else can you go to get your blood pressure checked, shop for shoes and purses, get a massage, win prizes, collect free samples, and so much more - all in one place?”

Some businesses will also offer seminars, including live music and a wine tasting.

Fultz looks forward to the seminars in store at the Women’s Expo.

“This year I'm particularly excited about the cooking demo hosted by The Globe,” she said. “Mari Harries of River City Eatery, Windom, will be making some simple yet rather stunning meal ideas - and handing out the recipes.

“I'm also excited about the Style Show,” Fultz continued. “Area retailers are currently gearing up for the show and picking out outfits, and I know I'm looking forward to some great style ideas.”

The Women’s Expo also features prize giveaways thanks to its prize sponsors, said Harms, which include Johnson Jewelry, YMCA, Fareway and JBS.

“There will be some very lucky winners out there,” Harms said.


More details, including a complete list of booths and seminars, can be found at .

Tickets are still available for purchase at The Globe, Fareway, Minnesota West, Sanford Worthington Clinic and Worthington Regional Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop, or at the door. For $1 off the ticket, guests can bring a non-perishable food item to donate.
