The Evolving Wellness Education Resource Center
It is anticipated that this Web site will become a major portal to the Internet for the evolving Wellness Education Resource Center in Port Ludlow.
However, for this center to best serve residents and answer wellness related questions more comprehensively and in a multi-modal manner,
the center will require more diverse and diversely accessible resources. Thus, we likely need some facility to house pamphlets and wellness
reference resources, as well as a computer corner to accommodate one-on-one or small group assistance with Internet use, online resources and,
more specifically, the sorting of the wealth of wellness and health related Web sites.
As a step toward the non-digital venue
of the Center, two three-hole "Notebooks" or "Resource Binders" were assembled
and made available to members at the Beach Club and the Bay Club. These notebooks contain a multitude of directories, pamphlets and brochures
published by health & wellness providers and support organizations in Jefferson and Kitsap Counties. The photo on the left shows Ursel Krumme and
presenting one of the Notebooks to an appreciative Brian Belmont, General Manager of the
Beach Club on April 27, 2011. Linda Colasurdo, Operations Manager,
likewise welcomed the Notebook at the Bay Club.
