Two representatives of the Fitness Forum in Plymouth approached the Starke County Commissioners about instituting a fitness-wellness program for the County’s 125 employees. Corporate Representative, Patty Choquette, and Mary Labuzienski, Clinical Program Director, pointed out that employees who work-out make better employees in the long run. They also described the weight reduction, smoking cessation and healthy living classes the employees could take advantage of.
The Commissioners pointed out that they would not pay for the memberships, even though it is being presented at a reduced rate. They would though allow the pair to prepare presentations for the department heads to pass along to the employees.
