Celebration of Military Women
Appointments for comp services available
TallGrass mascots Pepper and Nutmeg get ready for Nov 6
The TallGrass celebration of military women (and men, too!) continues as we get set to pack the holiday shipment of 100 Soldier Boxes on Nov 6 and entertain distinguished military women guests at the spa for lunch and complimentary services. Also on the 6th, four military women who were selected from among the vets we met at the Women Veterans of Colorado conference in September will be at the spa for their extreme makeovers.
During the week of Nov 9, we'll be giving away complimentary spa services, valued at $100 each, to 50 military women. And, we still have a couple of slots open. So, if you know a military woman - active, reservist, veteran - who is available Nov 9-13, ask her to give us a call at 303-670-4444. It's easy to sign-up.
And, later in the month, we will be providing personal care items for the 25th annual Denver Standdown for homeless veterans which is modeled after a concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat. Once a year, the Denver Standdown brings hot meals, haircuts, clothes, necessities and access to services for homeless veterans to one accessible location at the Denver National Guard Armory.
During the past few months, we have been in a whirlwind of activity as we celebrate TallGrass' 20th year in business by honoring the military. It's been a golden opportunity to connect with our community as folks pitch in to get involved according to their skills and resources - knitting hats, folding pocket flags, writing cards and sending checks for Soldier Box postage. We have been amazed - and gratified - at the seemingly limitless support for our troops.
