Warren, our leader, called the meeting to order.

Carol led us in singing “Rock Off the Pounds.”

We said our TOPS & KOPS Pledges.

The week’s best loser was Sue with a loss of 3 lbs. Congratulations Sue. Other good losses were Rachael 1.2, Kaylin 1.6 and Stephany 3.6 (for 3 weeks).

Linda Hall presented the awards for February. First, she had an award that had been overlooked; Laura received her two-year KOPS award she won in August.

We welcomed Connie as a new member with a new member certificate and pin. Laura received a “bring a friend certificate and pin” for inviting Connie to our chapter.

Thank you, Linda, for doing the awards for us.

Marble game: Stephany won the right to draw but did not get the winning one. There is $51.50 in the pot.

Margie will have the program next week.

Laura presented an idea for the next contest. It is from the recent issue of TOPS News, titled “Busy Bees.” She suggested we will have a KOPS team with a TOPS, each week there will be a set of five incentives you can do to earn a bee. This contest is outlined in the current TOPS NEWS on page SP2. This was tabled till next week after members have had time to look it over, we will vote on it next week.

Linda H went over some SRD items. You can invite friends to attend SRD if you wish, they must pay the regular registration. You must have your badge to get into any of the sessions. We will have several members in the activities; Past State Royalty, Laura State Queen 2021.
