Health effort proves popular

More than 600 people signed up earlier this month for the new health initiative, “Healthy You, Healthy L.O.U.” Many of those same people took advantage of the free hour-long ballroom dancing session offered for those participating in the program Thursday evening at the Oxford Conference Center. The five-month long program will feature special exercise programs and speakers like Patrick House, the winner of season 10 Biggest Loser who be in Oxford Feb. 1 at 6 p.m. at North Oxford Baptist Church. Priority seating goes to those in the program, however the doors will open at 5:45 p.m. for the general public. (January 21, 2011, Page 1A)
