Please join us for a WellCommons celebration and open house from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Friday, Feb. 3, at the News Center, 645 N.H.

Since its inception in April 2010, WellCommons, which is owned by The World Company, has become a trusted community health resource not only as a news site but as a social media site where anyone can share personal stories, post health-related events and participate in polls.

WellCommons has grown to include hundreds of members and more than 100 groups. Among them: Dads of Douglas County, LiveWell EatWell Restaurant Challenge, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Farmers Markets, and Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center.

In this open house, drop-in format, we'll be celebrating the community's contributions to WellCommons, which was recognized with a national EPPY award from Editor & Publisher magazine for best community service website.

Members of the WellCommons team — including health reporter Karrey Britt, lead web designer Ben Spaulding, digital sales manager Alice Brewer, senior account executive Kathleen Johnson, marketing and creative services manager Monica Taylor and digital editor Alex Parker — will be available to answer questions and chat about the website.

At 8:30 a.m., there will be a brief presentation and we will be recognizing five Lawrence residents who have made significant contributions to WellCommons during the past year.

Please join us for coffee and refreshments as we celebrate our community's achievement and look forward to continued success in 2012.

Ditto. Are you going to put the video online? I didn't get a chance to see it.
