A Day of Healthy Retreat

At our recent annual staff retreat the focus was on "Workplace Wellness" and we spent the day together talking about work-life balance and learning about stress reduction techniques.  We ate healthy food, discussed life values and had time to take a walk or contemplate nature.  Local professionals in the community stopped by to generously offer their expertise on keeping healthy. Thanks to both Wendy and Dr. Chas!
