Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
Brookhaven Retreat has been working diligently with alumnae, those who have completed treatment, to plan a reunion. Staying Well Fellowship Weekend will be November 2-4, 2012 in Pigeon Forge, TN. This is an alumnae-led event to bring alumnae together to socialize, commemorate treatment, share stories and to spread the word about the work that Brookhaven Retreat has been doing for women. Also the latest therapy tool, “Tell Me How You Really Feel” a book Jacqueline Dawes, founder and owner of Brookhaven Retreat, will be made available to all alumnae.
Brookhaven Retreat is located in Seymour, TN just over 20 miles away from Pigeon Forge, TN. The proximity of the alumnae reunion will allow for Brookhaven Retreat staff members to also come and take part in the weekend’s activities. When staff members are able to attend reunion events the alumnae are able to not only see old friends but also catch up with those who helped them along their way. The Brookhaven Retreat staff is coming in force to support the growth of those in attendance.
The Staying Well Fellowship Weekend is packed with a lot of fun filled activities. To begin the Staying Well Fellowship Weekend, everyone will be able to enjoy a specially prepared dinner Friday night, with activities to follow. Saturday, alumnae and staff will participate in a hike through the woods to experience nature and spend quality time together. November will still provide the alumnae, not from the area, the opportunity to witness the beauty that the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains have to offer with its rolling hills and colorful fall leaves. Following the hike, a dinner show will end the day.
