Fan the Flame Activity

Hey everyone! We are looking forward to this up coming activity...Fan the Flame. It will be held at the Sprague home (5405 Arabian Dr.) on Feb. 3rd @ 6:30pm. This will be a fun, no pressure, hands on activity where you get to visit with each other and brainstorm ideas if want. (and yes there will be light refreshments!) There are lots of items that we will be talking about and several that we will actually be making! These are inexpensive, fun ideas you can make for yourself or give as gifts (all are around $3). Come join us and enjoy an evening together. Whether you sign up to make something or not, whether you bring a friend or not, it doesn't matter...we would love to have you there!!

The Ward Welfare Committee


My mother-in-law recently gave me a huge bin of clothes that are like new.  She has lost a bunch of weight and can't wear them anymore.  These clothes are sizes 2X and 3X and some are women's petite.  If you are interested or know anyone who might be interested in these really nice clothes please let me know as I am giving them away.  I will keep them 2 more weeks before giving them to Goodwill.

I also have a nice used car seat that faces frontwards and backwards to give away. 

Call Marlene.

participants for HealthMiles for Sandia

I'm wanting to know who out there (Sandia employees and spouses) are doing the HealthMiles program? Send me an email at melissa dot lee dot spencer at gmail dot com.
I'd like to do challenges together since that's a great way to easily earn more miles/HRA bucks.

for Sandia Nat'l Labs spouses

For all spouses of Sandia Nat'l Lab employees:

If you're interested in joining in on the Virgin HealthMiles program (and thereby potentially earning an extra $250 into next year's HRA fund) Jon C found the link to the sign-up page. (FYI It's not easy finding this on your own)

The first “Click here” link is where you’ll want to click. It’s nice that the HealthMiles and pedometer are free as well. However, keep in mind that spouses will now have to complete an annual online health assessment in order to get the $250 SNL HRA contribution.

I'd be happy to help you sign up if you're having problems.
