There's been more cleaning, washing and scrubbing in Mitchell over the past three months than ever before in white history. Consequently, the Maranoa Health Enhancement Program -- organised by Helen Brindley -- decided today was the time to pamper men and women of all ages at the Mitchell Bowls Club.
With the theme 'Stop and Take Care of Yourselves and Each Other', a range of free treatments and health information was on offer. Manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials, head and shoulder massage, forearm and hand care, and nutrition etc were on offer.
This is a great idea. Many of the people who've lived through the flood and the clean-up are physically and emotionally fragile. When talk turns to the flood and its impact on their lives, tears are close to the surface.
