Cavendish fitness studio hosts Grand Opening

Business Ticker logoA new fitness studio is opening in Cavendish. DG Bodyworks, offering yoga, conditioning, strength-training and dance classes, will hold a Grand Opening from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec 10.

The business, located at 7 Depot St. in Cavendish, is owned by Denise Gebroe, a licensed massage therapist and certified personal trainer.  She also works in sports massage, miofascial release, reflexology, deep tissue, orthopedic, Thai and chair massage.

With more than 1,000-square feet of space, and two separate massage rooms, Gebroe intends to offer adult barre and children’s dance classes and Saturday morning Zumba among other classes.

Gebroe said that the class schedule will be announced at the Grand Opening, although massages will be given by appointment only.

The open house will feature live music, food, demos and a chance to win a massage and other prizes.

SAPA-TV encores ‘Santa Claus Conquers…’

 SAPA TV, Springfield’s public access TV station, will once again be showing 24 hours of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians for Christmas. Airing on Channel 8 (Comcast) and Channel 1160 (VTel), Santa Claus Conquers the Martians will begin at 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 14  and run until 8 p.m. Christmas Day.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is the story of how Santa Claus brings the spirit of giving and togetherness to the people of Mars after they kidnap him. The movie, which is generally ranked among the worst ever made, is suitable for children of all ages and is in color.

This year, SAPA TV has acquired a slightly better copy of the film than the one that ran in 2015, although potential viewers should be aware that this does nothing for the quality of the plot or acting. The regular Sunday church services will run at the usual times on Comcast channel 10 (VTel channel 1161), and will be accompanied by more conventional Christmas programming.
