It was a grand day for Get Healthy DeSoto at the De Soto Chamber of Commerce Home Show last Saturday. A special thank you is extended to the De Soto Chamber for sponsoring this event and for giving local businesses and non-profits the opportunity to meet new people in an alternate and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to our GHD volunteers, we enrolled 24 new GHD members, administered 71 blood pressure checks, entertained ‘the little ones’ the entire day in the Kid’s Corner! We also answered questions and gave recommendations about garden pests, showed visitors where the Woodland Nature Trail begins, renewed acquaintances and made new friends.
Our volunteers included: Dr. Lee Eavy, the Bug Doctor; Sherrie Connell, Darlene Payne, Sarah Warncke, R.N. & Donna Crady, R.N. The Kid’s Corner was under the leadership of the High School National Honor Society. Those who worked included: Madison Cueller, Kelcie Moravec, Alyssa Rudd, Megan Storie, Courtney Waggoner, Jacob Edwards, Kaytlyn Clark, Brittney & Courtney Krodinger, Maddie Waymire, Grant Keller and Kayleigh Street. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this a great day for our community.
