Mary Baker, Practice Representative for
Johnston Chiropractic.
The newly elected officers of the Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) hosted the June 9th meeting which was held at the Brethren Retirement Community. The officers are President Brenda Miller, Vice President Jane Carroll, Secretary Susan Fowble, Treasurer Dorothy Poeppelman and Assistant Treasurer Lindsey Gehret.

The program for the evening featured Mary Baker, Practice Representative for Johnston Chiropractic. Mary talked about the increased longevity. Currently the average life span is 77.6 years. By the year 2030 there will be 800,000 people over the age of 100 with many living to be 150 years old. Many things have improved over the years such as dental care and cosmetic procedures which enable us to live longer. The “prime” of life is around age 23 however most people experience decreased mobility after age 60. Since the nervous system controls everything, it is important to take care of our spine in similar fashion as it is also important to get regular dental checkups or get maintenance on our cars. She also discussed that through the use of chiropractic care, the quality of life and mobility can be increased greatly through at least age 90 in most cases. Chiropractic helps the body to “heal itself” and can help with headaches and many other issues in addition to neck and back pain.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The Club holds fundraisers through the year to raise money to grant scholarships to the young women of Darke County. The Club meets the second Thursday of every month for a dinner meeting with the exception of July and August. Those interested in learning more about the Club can contact Membership Chair Debbie Smith at 937-417-2434 or by email @
