COLES CONNECTION Local Girl Scouts Celebrate Founder’s Birthday Birthdays were the theme when Girl Scouts from the Compass Rose Service Unit held a skating party at Champions Rollerworld in Spring in October. The occasion was Girl Scout founder Juliette Low’s birthday. Approximately 200 girls from Sampson, Black and Farney Elementary schools and Goodson and Spillane Middle Schools skated in celebration.  In honor of Low’s memory and in the spirit of scouting, the Girl Scout troops assembled nearly 50 birthday boxes that were donated to Cy-Hope Hope Centers. Birthday boxes contain everything a parent might need to throw a fun birthday party: decorations, cake mixes, candles, paper goods and party favors.  Girl Scouting strives to build girls of courage, confidence and character. The girls of Compass Rose have shown that they are indeed making the world a better place. For more information about Girl Scouts, contact LaceyC@entouch. net.

COLES CONNECTION CYPRESS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR

Tis the season for rejoicing in shining fashion! Our choir family had a wonderful opportunity to shine with it’s A Capella choir on October 30th. Several choirs in the state of Texas were in attendance at Sam Houston State University in their Performing Arts Center for an imitational concert. Each choir had it’s own unique style and the evening was topped off by the college choirs delightful pieces. The solos and accompanists were an impressive touch and the crowd pleasing show closer was Queen’s ‘Somebody to Love’. It was an honor to be invited and we thank SHSU director Mr. Franklin for including our choir in this program. The women’s PJ party was a big success! Who doesn’t love hanging out with their besties in their comfy PJ’s? We thank Becks Prime for their generous donation, which allowed the girls to feast upon guacamole and salsa to their hearts content! The men’s lock in was equally a great bonding experience. Chips and queso disappeared like magic! Thanks to the parents that helped by sending in snack foods, treats, and their warm personalities as chaperones for our young men and women. WE LOVE OUR PARENT VOLUNTEERS!

Our students push themselves vocally by competing against the finest high school singers as they attempt to move towards the Texas State choir. At this point in time, we would like to recognize those members that have joined the Regional choir. Trevor Reagor, Grace Bracher, Diana Luu, Taylor Shaunfield, and Scott Johnson. Making Regional and moving on to Pre Area auditions are: Katie Ferrigan, Abi Amadin, Marguerite Lavin, Sarah McIntyre, Elyse White, Tate Brown, Evan Moynihan, John Rooney, Tyler Denton, Brandon Zachary, Lauren Lafferty, Jordan Svehla, Venessa Clarke, Alicia McCormick, Thomas Kang, and Ronald Pabello. WAY TO GO EAGLES!!! Outstanding job, congratulations! Our year will culminate in a vocal extravaganza for the holiday season. The holiday concert will be December 11th in the school auditorium. Traditional Christmas will be the theme of affair, and our students look so wonderful in their gowns and tuxedos. This delight for the soul in sound is one concert you won’t want to miss. Mark your calendars now and plan to attend. We assure that you will return to the season uplifted with a song in your heart! Have a blessed season, enjoy those you love, treasure your moments and we will see you next year!

Harvest of Wellness By: Dr. Kevin W. Lewis

14

Coles Connection - December 2012

Another lovely autumn season is upon us and with it, the dread of flu season, allergies, and then winter colds! It seems to repeat every year. As a physician, it’s my passion and honor to help patients heal in times of illness; however my deeper hope is to see them far less frequently due to an acute case of wellness. After all . . . I am a son, brother, husband, and father encouraging my own family to cultivate a harvest of wellness by the simple act of setting an intention for optimal health. By embracing wellness as a strategy, it’s easy to make healthy lifestyle choices that taste great, feel even better, and keep you out of my office! Remember the added bonus is that your children will follow your lead, so be a healthy role model. A healthy lifestyle should be complimentary, not complicated. It should include whatever exercise you enjoy on a regular basis. Exercise doesn’t have to be a sport, exhausting, or expensive. Try a variety of activities that can involve the entire family like joining the YMCA, weight lifting, taking walks together, hiking, yoga, rock climbing or whatever motivates you to move. Please eat whole foods (you enjoy) on a daily basis, because diet/ nutrition is truly the cornerstone of good health – and that is not an over statement. Fill your plate with a colorful banquet of fresh vegetables, fruit, and small portions of meat. Your body will respond and love you back. We all know clean drinking water is vital to optimal health, and those of you who enjoy alcoholic beverages should always do so in moderation. Research shows us that connecting often with friends and family leads to longevity, and of course — get plenty of quality sleep. Healthy living is not a new concept folks, yet it truly is powerful medicine. Young or old . . . encourage your family to set an intention to maintain optimal health. Be the one to help them cultivate a harvest of wellness this year and I’ll be glad to see you next year in my office for your annual wellness checkup. Dr. Lewis is licensed by the State of Texas and has been practicing in Family Medicine and Urgent Care since the spring of 2009.
