Mother’s Spa Day in Pictou Landing was a great success. It was sold out before the big day. The blustery winter afternoon did not dampen the lively spirit of women who held a ticket to participate in a day of pampering by the beauty experts which included a massage. For when they walk through the door the warm friendly smiles greeted them to a room of tranquil music and decor that promised extravagant indulgence. The pampered women were treated to a relaxing afternoon of manicure, pedicure, hairstyling, make-up by Mary Kay and a massage.
The afternoon was filled with activities including decadent snacks, chocolate fountain and refreshments, and many fabulous prizes donated by the local merchants. The beauty specialists who volunteering their time are: Cathy Francis & Anna Jean O’Neil – Hair Stylists, Charlie’s Hair & Nails- Nails & waxing, Dana Ross- Massage Therapy, Ashley Hebert from Essential Elements- Massage Therapy, Mae Ormond – Pedicures & Facials, Barb Burns- Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Total of $450.00 raised from this event will be used for the Earth Week coming up in April. Last year Pictou Landing First Nation School was received first place for the Earth Day Canada Challenge, and in turn the school made Earth Week happen not just in school but also in the community. Many new programs came out of this event. Eco-Kids group, Eco-Kids Newsletter,, Living Classroom, Garden Workshops, Community gardens, Garbage Bins, Beautification committee, Science Fair with Environmental themes and this year Earth Month instead of Earth day/Week!
