2018 Wellness Program - Challenge 5 - Get involved in Your Community

This is the Community Service Challenge - either competing in a community event (5K, bike race, marathon) or by doing community service.

This challenge I think I have covered pretty well.

I serve the Estes Park community as an Auxiliary Police Officer, as well as singing in a local all women's choir (MountainAires) and volunteering at the Pet Association of Estes Park.

The MountainAires women's chorus meets once per week to practice in the Spring from January to May and in the Fall from September to December. Practice runs one hour per week plus a sectional practice that is 1-2 hours during the course of spring or fall and then there is a concert in May and December for Prospect Park Living Center (done at the Center), Good Samaritan (done at the Center) and then the main concert held at the Presbyterian Church of the Rockies or the Mountain View Bible Fellowship. I also personally handle the Facebook page for the group posting pictures and concert dates/etc.

2018 hours for MountainAires: 31

The Pet Association of Estes Park is the animal rescue in Estes Park. I have walked dogs and sat with kitties waiting to be adopted. It's therapeutic for myself and the animals.
