CMH to host 5th annual Girls Night In event for tweens

CMH is hosting a free "girls only" event for tweens on April 30 in Bolivar, M

Citizens Memorial Hospital (CMH) and Shannon Calvert, M.D., board-certified pediatrician with Butterfield Park Pediatrics, will host a free “girls only” event for tweens on April 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the CMH Community Rooms, located at the hospital, 1500 N. Oakland, Bolivar.

The Girls Night In event is open to girls ages 9 to 13 and their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, teachers, caregivers and/or mentors.  The event will focus on growing up, puberty, health and wellness, self-image, inner beauty, fashion, social media, creative organizing tips and thrifty crafts.  Presenters include: Dr. Calvert; Ashley Shrimpton and Kim Scowden of Stellar Staging and Design; Shannon Tidwell of CMH Marketing Department; and Susan Burlison of Project Commander.

“The ‘in between’ years of a young girls life are the perfect opportunity to discuss being healthy inside and out,” says Dr. Calvert. “Tween girls are impressionable and this event will provide clear and relevant information and direction for pre-teen girls and the women influential in their lives.  We want everyone in the room to feel comfortable, have fun, learn the right information from the right people and ask lots of questions.”

The free event includes fun door prizes and a light meal.  Limited edition 2013 Girls Night In baseball T-shirts will be available in youth and adult sizes for $15 each.   Space is limited and reservations are requested.  For more information or to register visit  or call the CMH Information Center at 417-328-6010 or 888-328-6010.
