Ladies’ Day: Car Show & Spa Day

If you have ever helped or chaired an event with AACA Gettysburg Region you know it takes lots of planning and pre-planning. This event requires pre-planning and commitment on your part. I think it will be a fantastic time for all present (again I say: This is NOT for ladies only).

Date & Time: Friday, May 24, 2019 9AM – 2PM (yes I am trying a Friday as it seems weekends are filled for many people)

What: Ladies Day Car Show with our Guys

Where: Parking for Car Show at Dairy Queen, 221 Penrose PL, Carlisle, PA AND services at Tranquility Salon & Wellness Center, 257 Penrose PL, Carlisle PA

These two businesses are owned by husband, Scott and wife, Lisa. They are fantastic people and are loaning us their Dairy Queen parking lot for free. They have specials and of coarse their Blizzards and other ice cream goodies. Tranquility will offer whatever services they have available, BUT you must call and schedule them so sufficient personnel can be on hand. All appointments must be made by March 18 by calling: 717 218-8732. April and May are busy wedding times for them; therefore, we have an early commitment time. So worthwhile.

Services to consider: Salt cave meditation; Ion Foot Detox Cleanse; Paraffin Hand Dips; Ear Candling; Infrared Sauna; Facials, Nail Services; Fingers & Toes Therapy; Massages; and the list goes on. So checkout the website and give them a call to get the time period that you want….it will be a first come first serve basis. They open at 9AM and close at 6PM on a Friday…although we are running the car show until 2PM only.

I have not finalized the other features of this event yet. So come and see where else “my thinking outside the box” might lead to for this wonderful group of AACA Gettysburg Region folk that are so much fun to just be around. No fee registration…you will be responsible for any and all services you schedule and eat at Dairy Queen. Come enjoy the day with your fellow car lovers. You are welcome to call me if you want added information: Pat Shaffer @ 717 258-4964. Cut-out response sheet in the January/February issue of The Gas Buggy Gazette.
