How often do you go outside the walls of the work building or your home to connect? Are you involved in community groups? A church life group? How about a book, movie, or video game club?

Studies reveal that the more SOCIAL CONNECTIONS you have, the better your overall health.

So, let’s get social!


As an employee of DIG, you have many opportunities to get involved with others that you may not work with daily! See a few below and contact the lead person if you are interested.

Simply Hands and Feet – Mary Beth Hensley

Book Studies or Bible Studies – Ray Thompson or Haley Cooke

DIG Wellness workout classes – any of the instructors (see separate page for that list)

Abilene Young Professionals – Chad Hoes

Meals on Wheels – Allison Condry


Maybe you want to get involved with these community groups:

Camp Able

Alzheimer’s Association

Abilene Youth Sports Association

Habitat for Humanity

A life group at your church


Or perhaps you want to start your own group, see ideas below:

Ice Cream Club – try out different ice creams

Book Club – a book a month at someone’s home

Supper Club – try out different restaurants in town

Brunch with friends – get together for brunch with a group every couple months

Video game / Game nights – try out new board or video games together

Movies with friends – a movie a month at the theater


No matter what type of group you choose to get involved with – choose to be SOCIAL!
