I am very pleased with the current exercise and health related classes that SMC is offering at the Wellness Center and the “Healthy Living” courses at the Shingletown Area Resource Center. These classes are free to the public and help enrich the lives of our community members. I am also looking forward to more accessibility to the SMC Board members and input from the community. I would like to see more intermingling of all the Shingletown organizations and better communications amongst the groups. I feel my involvement in community activities gives me an opportunity to hopefully make a difference in people’s lives and the community in which we all live. Volunteerism enriches our lives and the lives of others.”
