WELLINGTON — Preston Barlow, P.A, shared common sense yet important tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle with Lions Club members at the recent meeting. He mentioned weight, calories, vitamin D, physical activity, mental health and tai chi, martial arts moves that can reverse imbalance in elderly such as nursing home patients.
Barlow recently relocated from Provo, Utah where he completed his physician assistant studies. His careers include firefighter, paramedic, police officer, 911 dispatcher, college instructor and flight medicine.
Introduced to the area while flying with Apollo MedFlight, the feeling of community and the friendly people drew Barlow to Wellington where he lives with his wife and two young children.
Boss Lion Rex Henard opened the 7 p.m. meeting at the fellowship hall of the Methodist church. Lions Margret Wood and Shirley Henard led the pledges. Lion Nancy Harris offered the invocation. Sweetheart Dani Ponder reported she will be competing in the Miss Cotton Country Pageant in Hollis, Okla.
Lions Harris, Wood and Neal Odom are celebrating October birthdays. Lion Paul Schaub led in singing “Happy Birthday” and “America the Beautiful” accompanied by Lion Shirley Henard on the piano. Geney Gulley catered the evening meal.
The Lions are planning the annual Fiesta Pile-on fundraiser for Friday, Nov. 6 but at the Wellington Fairgrounds indoor arena instead of the school cafeteria to allow for social distancing. The meal will be served from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets will be available from any Lion.
Others present were guests Lindy, Garrett and Jaylan Thomas and Lions Larrie and Lyndy Black, Nita Day, Fraya Hammons, Amy Henard, Angela McDanel, Bev Odom, Jeff Pastor, Cynthia Shrubs Patterson, Gene and Noemi Pena, Linda Powell, Harriett Schaub, Rudie and Karon Tate and Jeff and Janie Thomas.
