Jason Jones, Director of the Hesston Wellness Center announced he will be donning his finest dress and heels to perform “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story on Thursday, Feb. 28 at The Water’s Edge at 6:30 p.m.
Jones said his performance is a result of the Wellness Center meeting its January membership drive goal of 100 new or renewed members.
“Our goal was 100 new or renewed membership. We ended the month with 105,” he said.
Jones said, unlike last year, this year’s drive was down to the wire.
“There was some nail-biting. I was sending out daily updates to our staff encouraging them to reach out to friends and family to join,” he said.
Jones said reaching his goal took much longer this month than the previous year.
“It just didn’t seem like we were making as much progress from week-to-week as a year prior. We really relied on the last two weeks to hit the goal,” he said.
Jones said the goal was met on Jan. 31 when a gentleman came in with the express purpose of seeing Jones on stage.
