In late September, the Rim Country Health and Retirement Community hired Christy Walton as their new marketing director.
Although new to the position, Walton has been active in the community since moving here in 1995.
Best known as a Zumba instructor, Walton was also instrumental in bringing the first children’s advocacy center to Gila County; helping develop a parent resource center and implementing the Link Crew freshman orientation program at Payson High School.
Over the years, Walton has also been involved in many community projects, such as the annual Women’s Wellness Forum and the Community Health and Care Fair.
Since Walton started with Rim Country Health, she has moved her Zumba Gold class to Rim Country’s community room on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. Classes are $2, with money benefiting the Payson Senior Center.
Rim Country Health offers free health-related education classes as well as an open gym on Thursdays.
Rim Country Health and Retirement Community is located at 807 W. Longhorn Road.
