RON WAS THE SPEAKER AT THE WELLNESS FAIR
1. Great turnout. We counted 235 participants, and all levels and positions in the district were well represented. There are not a whole lot of events that bring the entire district together, and I feel that is one of the real positives that will come out of this wellness initiative.2. Thanks to:a. Everyone who came and participated... particularly the Yoga and Zumba participants!b. The businesses who participated. I thought the displays were great and they were very generous with donations and freebies, which we all love. We need to show our appreciation by frequenting these businesses whenever possible. We\'ll try to make sure to post the participants in all of the lounges and make the brochure available so people can know which businesses participated.c. The NHS and Key Club members who helped set up, take down, and pretty much assisted throughout the entire session... great job.d. The wellness committee, which includes members from each of the buildings.e. Melissa Baker and central office for getting behind the wellness initiative and really taking the lead in organizing the wellness fair.f. Barb Elliott. Barb was responsible for the brochures, tickets, organization, community liaison, etc.. she was a real driving force behind the success of the program.g. Ron Morelli . For those that were fortunate to hear him speak, along with his youngest son, he was truly inspirational and did a great job of sharing his journey with us. It was great to have him share his "Biggest Loser" stories and as an employee of the district it was cool to hear it from one of our own.
Thanks again to everyone who participated,
The Wellness Fair was a great idea and a big success ... nicely done! I think it really motivated a lot of people, including me. I enjoyed Ron and Max\'s presentation (watched every episode of Biggest Loser when Ron and Mike were on), and had fun trying Zumba and Yoga. My family doctor was there and, of course, she was glad to see I was participating. I showed her the 3-month free membership to Health Styles I won, and she loved that! I\'m excited about my prize!Thanks for all your hard work putting it together!Cathy BussertCITA/Special ServicesSouth Lyon Community Schools(248) 573-8220(248) 437-8438 [email protected]
