    With screenings of all types, and even more relaxing activities – such as massages and trying on Derby hats – the hundreds that flocked to Claudia Sanders Dinner House Monday for an annual women’s wellness fair came away well pleased, especially after a fried chicken dinner and a decadent dessert spread.
