More than 40 local teachers enjoyed Teacher Appreciation Night this year

Shirley, MA, June 30, 2014 — Forty lucky local teachers from Groton-Dunstable, Ayer-Shirley, Devens, Lunenburg, and other local districts received a “golden ticket” to the annual Teacher Appreciation Night hosted by Community Chiropractic, and co-sponsored by The Bull Run Restaurant, Groton Wellness, Luth’s Family Karate, Citizen’s Bank, Perkins & Anctil PC, and Lavender Florist.

Teachers were pampered with complimentary food and drinks at the Bull Run last month. Groton guitarist Russell Kniffin provided live music, and teachers received chair massages by Groton-based massage therapists Sheila Checchi, Jose Dudley, and Aisling Keating. In an “Oprah-style” giveaway, guests were surprised with gifts from local participating businesses, including: Body Mind Spirit Day Spa, Centered Massage Therapy, Fitness Your Weigh, Groton Wellness, Lavender Florist, Luth’s Karate, Solas Therapeutic Massage, Squg, LLC, and Well-Being Acupuncture of Groton; Lily Baddour Reiki of Harvard; Bodylines Pilates of Harvard and Lancaster; Illuminations of Gaia of Townsend; Nancy Ames Massage Therapy of Acton; and Chris Rottger of Westford.

“We had an overwhelming response this year,” Dr. Pamela Jarboe of Community Chiropractic said. “We thank the other local businesses who enthusiastically jumped in to celebrate a record number of teachers and their contributions to our community. This is always our ‘feel-good’ event of the year, and it has been even more so this year!”

The next Teacher Appreciation Night will be in June 2015. Any area businesses interested in contributing as a sponsor, or donating services or giveaway items next year, are invited to contact Tobi at Community Chiropractic, at 978-448-9355.
