Upper Cumberland Women to unite!

“I loved it,” said Kathy Sullivan of last year’s Upper Cumberland Showcase for Women.
“I’ve been to a lot of women’s shows in other counties, and ours was better in comparison.”
Will Sullivan be returning this year?
“I already have my ticket,” she said.
“I’ve had it for a week.”
Sullivan said one of the features of the show she most enjoyed was the medical booth as well as the many products available for sale from area merchants.
Already, many clinics are scheduled for the women’s show.
The 2002 Upper Cumberland Showcase for Women takes place on April 13 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Many special activities are planned for attendees including educational clinics sponsored by numerous area merchants.

Sullivan attended last year with her friend, Judy Dunn, and Dunn told The Expositor she loved the show because it was interesting and fun.
Dunn said she attends the Nashville women’s show each year and was glad to have one in her area.
“I liked the information pamphlets and handouts,” she said.
“I just really love the women’s show.”
However, the person who seemed most thrilled with last year’s show was the grand prize winner, Kathryn Flatt,
“I really enjoyed the women’s show,” said Flatt, who was last year’s grand prize winner of a 52″ big screen television.
“I liked the variety of all the different exhibitors, and I thought it was a class act for Sparta.”
Promotions Director Christy Hampton and the entire advertising staff of The Expositor are staying busy planning the event, and Hampton urges women to buy their tickets in advance.
“Please, please, please buy tickets in advance,” Hampton wanted all area women to know.
“The tickets are moving quickly and we expect to sell out even sooner than last year.
With a ticket in hand, no one will face the prospect of being turned away at the door the day of the event.”
