Tis the Season

The lights are lit, the wreaths are hung, and the lights are lit. The season is upon us. For us, this season offers a time of reflection. This year we celebrate the successes we have had in our journey for a healthy Elsinboro.

Year one of our grant has been exciting, challenging, and full of opportunities. We began the year with the opportunity to meet with healthy community stakeholders to share ideas and begin our journey.

From there we met with our local stakeholders to begin mapping our plan for the year. Our priorities included drafting our shared use agreement, deciding upon our nutritional assessment, and meeting with local contractors to determine the feasibility of our walking path.

We are excited to share that we are well on our way to meeting these goals. The shared use agreement has been developed and is ready for implementing. We have narrowed down our nutritional assessments and are ready to roll out during the new year.

2019 is rapidly approaching and we are excited to continue our progress. On behalf of Healthy Elsinboro, we wish you a happy and healthy new year.
