Girls in DCF care pampered during Stockbridge spa day

STOCKBRIDGE -- When Amanda arrived at Seven Salon Spa on Monday morning, she was swiftly whisked away into the chair of stylist Collette Villetto. The 14-year-old was unsure what to expect. "Where I live, it's in the middle of nowhere, so I don't get out much," Amanda said. Amanda was among seven girls in care of the state Department of Children & Families invited on Monday to take part in special spa day to celebrate the holidays.
