Tammy had the program today, she spoke on “If you are what you eat, what color are you? Eating 5-9 servings of vegetables and fruits each day is good for you. But did you know that eating a variety of COLORFUL foods is just as important? Tammy gave us each a chart to use to learn about the different food color groups, what nutrients they contain and their health benefits. Thank you, Tammy, for a great program.
Jean will have the program next week.
Linda H. read a letter from our advocate, Claudia. She said Fall Rally will be held in Lebanon this fall but no exact date has been set as yet.
CONTEST: Marilyn reported on the chapter contest; Laura is leading in the KOPS and Rachael is leading in the TOPS portion. Marilyn will report on the state summer contest next week.
Marilyn then led us in one minute of marching in place.
It was noted there are some really good exercises shown in the new TOPS Magazine that came out this week.
Linda H. reminded us elections will be held the second week in July and measurements will be taken at that time as well.
With no other business meeting was adjourned with Linda’s quote of the week;
“Every path has a few puddles.”
And our Chapter Motto: IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME.
