New to town – need a Chiropractor Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community. Our Welcome Kits feature and direct these new families to a small number of local businesses for the goods, services & professionals that they need to find. Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one Chiropractor, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being the featured Chiropractor in our local Welcome Kits. I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail. Please reply to this message with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience. For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to call or text me on my cell which is listed in my signature. Thanks. Steven Angelo (702) 807-8730
Today we celebrate all mothers, grandmothers, caregivers, and anyone who provides the love of a mother. Happy Mother's Day!
