Amory invites entries for Healthy Hometown Initiative logo
AMORY – In keeping with the 2012 Playful City Award, Amory has been involved in a number of progressive ideas and developments including the recent creation of a Healthy Hometown Committee.
“This is a committee that will serve as a think tank for ideas to keep Amory on the right track toward a healthier future,” said city accountant and grant writer Jamie Morgan.
The committee is currently holding a logo competition. The logo will appear around town along with Quick Response (or QR) codes that can be scanned using a smartphone. Once scanned, the user will be sent to the city’s map of play areas around town, as well as the city’s Healthy Hometown Initiative website where information on recipes, activities and other ways to lead a healthier lifestyle can be found.
The committee is part of Mayor Howard Boozer’s Healthy Hometown Initiative and is guided by input from citizens, as well as research on community trends.
One development from the initiative is the outdoor play space scheduled to be built in April at the Gilmore SportsPlex, commonly known as the Pea Patch. This project will be a community build.
The Senior Citizen Program is another aspect of the initiative designed to offer senior citizens a place to exercise and socialize.
Seniors can attend fitness classes at the East Amory Community Center three days a week for $4 a month. Activities will rotate depending on participants’ interest. The group will also take part in day trips. Those interested can contact Wilma or Angel at 256-3221.
To enter the logo competition, email entries to email@example.com or Amory Mississippi on Facebook. The contest deadline is April 17.
