I told you last week how the county employees are on their way to getting healthy under the leadership of Mayor David Crum. If you missed it, click here. Today, I am happy to report that the city employees are doing the same.
For at least the past year or so, city employees have been showing up to a good number of my community events to earn "wellness points" required by their employer, in order to keep their insurance costs down. This past week, I had the privilege of leading the first of 8 Creation Health seminars held at Public Works for city employees to earn points as well. There are 33 of us who will be spending 1 lunch a week together for 8 weeks, taking a more in depth look at how the 8 Creation principles affect our overall health and well-being, encouraging one another to make small changes that will lead to big results in the long run. The first seminar ( C - Choice) was a success and I look forward to working with these lovely people for the next 7 weeks and then again with a new group in the fall, for our second round of seminars.
I am so thankful that the leadership in both our city and county are setting a great example for all of us in Greene County to follow!
I also spent a few afternoons this past week working on the new display for the main lobby at Laughlin, alongside Wellness Director Tracy Green, and I just love how it turned out! If you are at Laughlin, be sure to stop by, take a look and grab some free materials from the table.
Happy Weekend, friends!
