    What motivated you to live a healthier lifestyle? Living a healthier lifestyle was a decision that I did not have to make. When I was coming out of elementary school my doctor told me I had one option and that was to take control of my weight. If I did not I would not have a chance to see the age of 50. With the help of both my parents, we took that first step.


    The family of Jesse and Mendola Colson would like to invite you to share in the celebration of their parents’ 70th anniversary. The family will hold an open house at 3405 Keefer Road from 2 to 5 p.m. April 22. No gifts, just well wishes.
