The following information was submitted by Valjean Fountain of the Uvalde Area Retired Teachers.
With so many changes in the Texas Retired Teachers insurance this year, health care was the emphasis and attraction of the two-part program at the Uvalde Area Retired Teachers potluck luncheon March 20 at the Herby Ham Activity Center.
The meeting began with President Nancy Stockton welcoming members and guests. She thanked hostesses Susan Stone, Helen Burgin, Ninfa Benavidez, Jakelynn Crawford, Maria Vela, Ann Reagan, Glynis Peterson, Dale and Valjean Fountain, and Robert and Wanna Lou Lloyd.
Following the invocation given by Robert Lloyd, members enjoyed a potluck luncheon and fellowship with other retirees.
Eunice Sosa, health care chairman, introduced speakers Dr. Jared Reading and Mandi Reading, who own and operate Shotgun CrossFit. The couple alternated discussing the importance of “Good health habits: Nutrition, exercise, sleep, and community.”
Dr. Reading stated, “We are social creatures and need to associate with others.” He further explained, “Spending time interacting with friends, people in church, and in organizations such as yours, as well as volunteering, are positive ways to help with our well-being.”
