Monday Mile: Join a Walking Group


From Move It Monday:

Walking has all kinds of benefits for your health. These benefits become even greater when you walk with a group! Whether you are walking to get into shape or stay in shape, ambling along with a group can be a great motivation to keep you going all week long. Becoming a member of a walking group can help you stick to a regular walking schedule, prompt you to reach greater mileage goals, and even make the time go by faster. If you can’t find a group that fits into your calendar, we’ve got some great resources to help you organize your own!

The Decatur Lacrosse Story

Hear how the sport of lacrosse brought together the son of refugee parents and about one of Decatur’s first lacrosse success stories. This is worth the time it takes to watch. We are so proud of our lacrosse players and thankful to have Don Rigger and Stacy Green to inspire them.

Annual Senior Holiday Party Highlights

Thanks to everyone who came out for the annual Senior Holiday Party. We had a lot of fun enjoying music, food and camaraderie. We even had our very own Santa!

Thanks to JenCare and Eon Health for being our partners and providing food and activities for our seniors. We loved having firefighters, police, city staff and our newest Commissioner, Kelly Walsh, attend the festivities.

The photos tell the story! Enjoy a lot more photos on our Active Living Facebook Page.
