THE NJ MAYOR'S WELLNESS CAMPAIGN

You may notice a new look to our brochures. There is a pinwheel logo that marks some of our programs. What does this mean?

The Mayor's Wellness Campaign is a statewide initiative to invite Mayors to play a leadership role in supporting opportunities to promote active, healthy lifestyles with long-term goals to include a reduction in health care costs for all. The Village community will strongly support this initiative and everywhere you see the logo, you will know the benefits of each marked program are many. Come be a part of it all.
