As part of Member Appreciation Week at Five Points Washington, members will be treated to free massages.

The pampering is provided by massage therapy students from Illinois Central College. The students receive credit toward their degree. In order to complete the program and earn their degree, the students must complete so many hours of practical experience outside of the classroom.

Massages will be offered from 5-7:30 p.m. today and Friday in the lobby at Five Points to members with a valid scan pass.
