The Professional Nail Technicians in the Cosmetic Services program hosted a “Quiet Memory Manicure” event on Thursday night, October 11, 2012 . This special occasion was created by Mrs. Bridgeforth, the instructor of the program, to give the youth of Patterson High School the opportunity to come into the salon and receive silent services. During this time guests were able to quietly remember their teenage friends and family members who lost their lives as a result of senseless violence.

The event was very successful. The Nail Technicians remained silent throughout the evening while parents and students were given basic manicures in the Patterson “Spa La La” Salon. Daughters quietly pampered their mothers and many Patterson students. Several guests commented that the services were very nice. The mothers shared with Ms. Bridgeforth that the event was very nice and they were thankful it was done. Candles were lit, refreshments were served and the atmosphere was very calm, comforting and relaxing.

The Professional Nail Technicians at Patterson High School perform a variety of community services throughout the year. They are looking forward to hosting this event again in the future. They are always happy to show their care and concern to their fellow students.
