Want to Help?

Today, we ran a story about a program to help residents of Olde Forge get healthy. That program, Healthy Living Pays, is looking for volunteer wellness coaches to work with families. The director, Lisa Bales, hopes each family can have their own coach, who could play ball with the kids or workout with the parents, show how to make healthy snacks, etc. Training is provided, and volunteers can set their own schedules. To sign up, call Bales at 540/368-0081 or email
