Attend our next planning session

We’ve painted the Healthy Mile Trail.  We've established a Ridgefield GirlTrek Walking Team.  Now what?  Let’s further the goal of making our community healthier by modifying our eating habits. In addition to being active, eating well-balanced meals is crucial. To that end, we are starting a social media event using the USDA MyPlate icon.

During the month of November, we will hold weekly raffles and award prizes. To win, just take a picture of your healthy plate and post it to our social media sites using #healthecommunity. Your plate should look like the ChooseMyPlate.gov icon.  It should have a mix of fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy items.  Do follow your dietitian's advice.  Weekly prizes will include physical and electronic gift cards in various denominations.  A grand prize will be awarded at the end of the month.

The planning committee is meeting in Study Room #2 of the East Regional Library on Saturday 11/4 @ 09:30 to finalize details. You must register and be a Ridgefield resident to win and to attend our planning session.

Congratulations to Christopher Meadows, the Week 1 winner.  His was the only #HealTheCommunity social media post for Week 1, he posted to Facebook.  Christopher has been awarded both $25 Amazon gift cards.
