LHC Human Resources Wellness Program
The City offers a Wellness Program that includes a monthly luncheon offering some type of exercise activity. Our Association was contacted to provide pickleball lessons/games for the City employees. To date we have supported four of those events and look forward to many more.
For the second year in a row, our volunteers participated in conducting a weekly pickleball session for kids ages 10-13 teaching basic skills/drills and organizing games.
