City Fit Debuts Friday
Healthy living will soon be easier to achieve as a brand-new health and wellness electronic newsletter launches Friday, June 1. This newsletter, City Fit, will include upcoming programs and classes, healthy recipes, information from Health and Wellness staff and more. All eNews Weekly subscribers will receive it on the first of every month.
 
City Fit is the newest newsletter to debut as part of a complete redesign of all Community Association’s electronic newsletters. With its launch, you’ll start to see monthly and weekly Health & Wellness program information phasing out of eNews Weekly and moving into City Fit. A major goal of the newsletter redesign project is to condense eNews Weekly and build readership for subject-specific newsletters. Stay tuned for a new look to eNews Weekly coming later this year!
