Destination Wellness Series

Several members asked us to film the Destination Wellness Series co-sponsored by DWMM and the Camden Public Library. The talks are held during the day (every second Monday of the month) while many members work. The Board approved funds to film some sessions. Then we found an impressive local video producer, Ricky Sheaves, of West Downeast Multi Media.

Ricky created our first ever DWMM video entitled, "Nourish Your Skin From The Inside Out." This three-speaker talk occurred on April 13, 2015, and covered advanced skin care treatments and nutrition for the skin. We hope you like it and will apply some of these tips toward enhancing your own beauty health.

We would love feedback and also wish to extend an invitation to all our members to participate in this exciting new member benefit. (Start by logging in to download a speaker application form, which can be found in the right side column below "Member Information.")
