The torrential downpour on Thursday, April 7, 2016 didn’t dampen the spirit of the sold-out crowd attending Speare Memorial Hospital’s 6th annual Wine, Women & Wisdom event in Plymouth, NH. This event is the hospital’s annual ladies night where learning and socializing are keys to rejuvenating, re-energizing and rejoicing in the similarities and differences that unite all women.
Prior to the speaker presentations, attendees visited and shopped at exhibitor booths and partook in a wine tasting.

To kick off the event, Speare’s new Marketing and Community Relations Director, Kate Tarbox, introduced event sponsor Dr. Dennis C. Hiller from Hiller Orthodontics of New Hampshire. Dr. Hiller spoke to the crowd about the importance of good dental health and the reward of improving a person’s confidence and self-esteem through their new smile.
The first speaker for the night was Kristina Stalnaker, APRN, from Plymouth Orthopedics. Her talk/demonstration, “Tone Your Bones”, was about diet and how to exercise safely with arthritis.
Following a brief intermission, allowing for more socializing and shopping, was the keynote speaker, Carol Phillips, the award-winning author of 52 Simple Ways to Health, national health and wellness expert, and host of the Ask Coach Carol radio show. Carol wove together humor and wisdom to keep the audience engaged and entertained as she talked about changing thinking and implementing small changes to make sustainable improvements to your overall health and happiness.
Laughs were shared, new friends made, old friends reconnected and a great night was had by all.
