TOPS 1243 attends State Recognition Days

The TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) 1243 Marshalltown chapter attended State Recognition Days in Des Moines. Ten members attended this event for two days. One member, Sandy Lurvey, received a “K” charm for being within her weight range for the entire year, she also participated in the KOPS Circle of Light. Another member, Marvis Drew created a Mardi Gras Float that was entered into the contest.

Chapter 1243 stays very busy with Bingo contests, a walk to encourage exercise. We have just started identifying a “forbidden” food to encourage good food choices. This makes the meetings fun and enjoyable. We have welcomed three new members recently. The door is always open to new members. The group meets every Thursday at 9 a.m. at the Fisher Community Building in the auditorium. If you have questions please call J. Primus at 641-474-2245.
