PRESENTATION OF AGENDA AND CALL FOR MODIFICATIONS:
The WIN agenda template
MINUTES: The minutes generated last week were posted at the WIN link at www.railbelt.org and submitted electronically to the WIN e-list.
INTRODUCTION OF GUESTS:
No new guests
The WIN group continued talking about envisioning wellness in Nenana. In the past WIN would invite people to present on different subjects that bring wellness to our community. The WIN group would like to bring that tradition back. We will continue discussing different people we would like to formally invite to present on themselves, a subject, or their new employment.
The WIN agenda has announcement updates from different organizations in the community, however, many of the organization no longer exists. We would like to discuss about potentially removing or editing the announcement updates next meetings.
WELLNESS THOUGHT: My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
- John F. Kennedy
