On Sunday, February 3, 2013, the Health Department of the Parkgate S.D.A. Church sponsored a Wellness Experience under the theme: Live Well-Body, Mind & Spirit. The participants were treated to an array of wellness tips and remedies wrapped up in a sumptuous presentation style.
Born out of a desire to help persons live their best life; presenters encouraged, motivated and inspired their audience to adopt healthy lifestyles for optimum health and longevity by Church Pastor, E. D. Clarke, presented as the appetizer, Spiritual Wellness.This he stated is “foundational for successful living”.
The entrée was served by motivational speaker, Patrice Williams-Gordon in an animated display that emphasized the importance of maintaining balance in an imbalanced world. This course was complimented by a Fitness Blast Session where the audience stretched, twisted and turned in an energetic 7 min. exercise session conducted by Tyrone Neely.
Participants was able to choose from various side dishes that included a Financial Wellness Session which outlined practical budget saving tips by CPA Mrs. Vanria Gardiner; House hold tips straight from the kitchen by Mrs. Charisee Smith and Easy Effortless Recipes by Mrs. Tinia Browne. Not to be left undone, the teens were treated to a special feast on Living Healthy in an Unhealthy World by Mrs. Anastacia Carter while the men enjoyed their treat on Men’s Health by Urologist, Dr. Joseph Evans.
The dessert was the final portion and was beautifully served in our Back Yard Farming segment by Mr. Dwayne Adderley. The audience was able to sample the fruit of his labour, prepared right before their eyes. Many pledged to create their own back yard farms in their quest to lead healthier, well balanced lives. The day ended with a four course healthy meal, gifts and surprises and a promise to live well- Body, Mind and Spirit.
