Challenge Expectations, Create New Environments

Take a minute to think about the best valentine you’ve ever received. What flashed through your mind? A note? A gift? Chocolate or candy?

While our culture struggles to separate food—especially sugary sweets—from major holidays and celebrations, Valentine’s Day presents an excellent opportunity to challenge those norms and create healthier environments in our homes and schools. This year, we challenge you to do just that: Rethink your Valentine’s Day gifts and celebrations and make a concerted effort to choose healthy alternatives.

Empty School Becomes a Community and Recreation Center in Huerfano County

In 2009, the Huerfano School District closed Washington Intermediate School, which had served students for more than 70 years. While the children began attending another K-8 school in the community, the old Washington School site sat nearly empty. That is, until now. Next week, the doors will reopen to serve a new purpose: that of community—and eventually recreation—center.

“This is so exciting,” says Cindy Campbell, LiveWell Huerfano County coordinator. “It’s a beautiful old building and it...
