20th Annual Mid-Michigan Women’s Expo

The 20th annual Mid-Michigan Women’s Expo was a celebration of women, entrepreneurs and bringing people together. There were over 300 businesses with products catered to women, including healthy eating. One of the businesses at the event was Vitamix, a company that manufactures blenders for restaurants and every day consumers. Every booth at the event showcased their products, ranging from cakes, hair styling tools and jewelry, but Vitamix promoted something bigger. 

“Love hearing stories about how we changed people’s lives, that they’ve gotten healthier, they’ve beat their healthy obstacles etc.,” said Nancy Spruiell, a Vitamix demonstrator. Spruiell said the blender also helps parents get their kids to eat fruits and vegetables. 

“Raising healthier kids, that’s a huge thing these days, especially with the way they make our food these days,” Spruiell said.

On March 3, the ladies of Mason and the businesses that serve them gathered for the fifth annual Mason Area Women’s Expo. The expo was 10 a.m.–3 p.m. at the main arena at the Ingham County Fairgrounds. Drs. Lynne and Dan Sowers of Sowers Chiropractic put on the event as a way to promote their practice and other businesses in Mason. “We found that we draw more from the Mason area, not as much from Lansing, and I know what was the case for a lot of businesses,” Lynne Sowers said.
