At the August 13, 2019 Town Commission meeting, Mayor Kathy Stark proclaimed September 20, 2019 as West Orange Healthy Selfie Day in the Town of Oakland. West Orange Healthcare District board members and staff members joined the Town of Oakland Commissioners in taking a fun "Healthy Selfie" at the meeting.
The proclamation read by the Mayor was as follows:
Whereas, Healthy West Orange inspires healthy behaviors and provides resources to help residents make better lifestyle choices; and
Whereas, Healthy West Orange champions healthy programs that deliver health and wellness activities; and
Whereas, Healthy West Orange unites health-minded organizations for whom a healthy community provides meaningful benefits; and
Whereas, Healthy West Orange advocates for healthy community decisions and encourages local leaders to keep their communities' health and wellness a top priority; and
Whereas, Healthy West Orange declares the third Friday in September as the Annual West Orange Healthy Selfie Day.
Therefore, it is my great pleasure and privilege as the Mayor of the Town of Oakland to declare Friday, September 20, 2019 as West Orange Healthy Selfie Day and I urge all citizens to join in supporting this initiative.
If you submit your own Healthy Selfie in the month of September following the Additional Healthy Selfie Information, you’ll be entered to win amazing prizes, including two YMCA Annual Memberships for the whole family!
