WORTHINGTON - The Daily Globe Women’s Expo Health and Home Show is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and the expectation is that the event will be bigger and better than ever.


The show, scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Minnesota West Community and Technical College, will feature 50 vendors and showcase a variety of goods and services.


“Each year we have some turnover with the booths, but we always seem to fill the space and we have some new vendors this year,” Daily Globe Publisher Joni Harms explained. “We’ve got boutique clothing, we’ve got home decor, we’ve got jewelry and we’ve got makeup. We’ve also got a couple of food and drink booths that will have free samples.”



Harms is excited that this year’s Women’s Expo Health and Show has four title sponsors - Avera Medical Group Worthington, Minnesota West, re*be and Sanford Worthington.


“We’re back to having four title sponsors this year and we couldn’t do this event without their support, so we’re very thankful,” Harms said.


This 10th anniversary Expo offers its usual slate of seminars throughout the day, in addition to the vendor booths.


“Love Your Legs,” sponsored by re*be, is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m., and will be followed by the Sanford Worthington-sponsored “Right Place, Right Care” at 10 a.m.



Sue Doeden, a fixture at previous Women’s Expo Health and Home Shows, is back again this year. She is scheduled to present “Spring Forward with Simple & Seasonal Salads” at 10:40 a.m. and “Fresh + Frozen = Fast & Fabulous” at 12:45 p.m. Doeden will be assisted during her seminars by Madie Cummings, Worthington’s 2017 Winterfest Queen.


“We’re excited to have Sue Doeden, our food specialist, back for two seminars,” Harms said.


“Mindful Eating: Building a Healthy Relationship with Food,” a seminar presented by Avera Medical Group Worthington, is scheduled for 11:30 a.m., and the Sanford Worthington session “Helpful Tips for Staying in Your Home As Long As Possible” is slated for 12:10 p.m.


A seminar titled “re*be Yourself” is on the agenda for 1:40 p.m., and the 10th annual Wine Tasting Event - sponsored by Avera Medical Group Worthington and hosted by Worthington Liquor Store - will begin at 3 p.m.



“With our 10th anniversary we’re hoping to have stellar crowds, especially with our lineup of seminars and vendors and anticipated great weather,” Harms said. “There will be free health screenings, and of course we’re very excited about the wine tasting. We’re hoping people will come and bring a friend, or bring a carload.”


Door prize drawings will take place following the conclusion of the wine tasting at approximately 3:30 p.m. Prizes will be given by Hy-Vee, Johnson Jewelry, Worthington GreatLIFE, re*be and First State Bank Southwest.
