Women supporting and inspiring other women in our community is the theme of the second annual Ultimate Me Day, a women’s one-day conference scheduled March 29 at the John D. Bradley Centre in Chatham.

Organizers of the event introduced their major sponsor, Junctura Group Construction, and outlined a packed day at a media launch Monday.

The annual event began last year as the brainchild of a group of local entrepreneurial women who met regularly to support each other as they grew their businesses. One of the five women, Sandra Maltby-Mills, said the theme this year is “Be Inspired.”

“We want people to be inspired to be what they want to be,” Maltby-Mills said. “We want women to gather and build a community of support with the attitude that when one of us wins, we all win. Chatham-Kent has a lot of talent, and Me Day is a showcase for that and a celebration of the women in our community.”

Maralee Noltie, another member of the organizing committee, said the event last year had very good attendance, and there is a new addition to the program this year. A fashion show and lunch featuring Luxe Ladies’ Fashion Boutique and Red C Wear have been added.

“Our theme is ‘Be Inspired’ and we invite women to come and have a day of fun, do some shopping and be inspired by the speakers who will share their knowledge and experience,” Noltie said.

Besides the fashion show and inspirational speakers, the event will feature vendor booths, wine tasting with Early Acres Estate Winery, a booth for professional headshots, massages from Revive, and plenty of door prizes.

Junctura Group Construction will also be involved with complimentary consultations on home renovations. According to Junctura Group’s Rocky Gaudrault, the sponsorship of Ultimate Me Day was a perfect fit to his business philosophy of development and moving forward as a team.

To assist women who have big dreams of re-designing their homes, but aren’t sure where to start, pictures and concepts can be e-mailed to Junctura at umd@junctura.ca, and Matt Lessard and his construction team will review them and set up an appointment for a consultation on how to make that dream a reality. Appointments can be at the conference or any time that is mutually convenient.

An exciting part of the media launch for organizer Maureen Geddes was the announcement by locally owned and operated Scribendi, an award-winning on-line editing and revision service, that for every ticket sold to Ultimate Me Day this year, they would plant a tree.

Annie Chamberlain, marketing assistant for Scribendi, said the organization is very excited to be part of this greening initiative with the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority and the Chatham Horticultural Society. Scribendi will pay for the trees and supply volunteers to help plant them.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, Ultimate Me Day tickets purchased for the special woman in your life come with a card and envelope to be given as the perfect gift and a tree will be planted in that woman’s name.

Tickets are $30 and are available now at cktickets.com, at TekSavvy offices at 800 Richmond St. in Chatham, and at Libro Credit Union in Blenheim. For more information, go to www.ultimatemeday.com.
