Winter Slumber

By La Toya Wadley

On Wednesday, Dec.7 Campus Life and the FV Peer Leaders hosted its bi-yearly Peer Leader Relaxation Fair titled Winter Slumber. 

The goal of the Relaxation Fair was to help students unwind and de-stress one week prior to finals by way of massage therapy and other mind and body soothers. 

Students enjoyed their choice of hand, body, or chair massages provided by Studio 6 Express, or reiki full body hands-on treatments provided by Maurine Sampson of Spirit Peace.  There was also yoga sessions given by Florissant Valley's very own, Sandy Tricomo.   

Winter Slumber was a free event open to all Florissant Valley students.  There was a donation requirement of all those who choose to participate.  Students made a donation of new or unused toys, canned goods, baby food or formula for area charities.  Two people could gain entry with the donation of a toy, or one person could enter with a donation of two canned goods, baby food or formula. Additional donations were also welcome. 

There was soothing music, refreshments made by Treat America, relaxing giveaways such as hot socks, massage and aromatherapy balls in a beautifully decorated atmosphere. 

The Fall 2011 Peer Leader Relaxation Fair-Winter Slumber took place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Quiet Study area located in the lower level of the Student Center.

Donations without participation were also accepted.
