Wellness Initiative Update

The Wellness Center at 130 Smith Drive is now under renovation for a late summer opening.  Crews are strengthening the building with external fiberglass and concrete board panels and adding several windows to brighten up the place.  Plumbing has been roughed-in for the restroom expansion and new offices are being constructed in the back of the building to accommodate a soon-to-be-announced anchor tenant.  All of the wellness equipment has been delivered and is ready to set up...both inside the facility as well as the outdoor equipment for the three fitness zones that will be constructed around town.  Meanwhile, Walnut's Healthy Heroes closed out the school year by presenting a program for all Walnut Elementary Students on May 5th.  Each month, Walnut PD and FD personnel visit the school to promote healthy choices and exercise.  We especially appreciate WES and our police and fire departments for taking the lead on this portion of the greater wellness initiative.  It is our hope that all of these events, services and resources will greatly improve the quality of life in the Walnut community.

If you or your organization would like to contribute toward completion of the wellness center, please reply to healthywalnut@comcast.net.  Let's get moving!
