The Nenana Wellness Coalition is an alliance of representatives from various organizations, government agencies, community groups and individuals that meets weekly to discuss, evaluate, coordinate, consolidate, celebrate, masticate and help implement plans for improving the wellness and quality of life in Nenana Alaska.
This week we had Laura Hokenson and her son Max, Michael, Magen Spencer, Rosemary Allen, Bonnie Reed, Derek Ketzler, Mike Anderson and Gayle Ramey stopped by briefly to give a quick update. We enjoyed turkeys wraps, pea salad, cheese with crackers and assorted nuts.
