TOPS International has issued a million pound loss challenge. That translates to 10 pounds lost by each TOPS member. If everyone in our chapter meets the challenge and loses 10 lbs. in 2017 Robbie will see that Sylvia visits our chapter and conducts a meeting.
Jan won the right to draw for the marble but drew a green one.
Warren said the contest starts this week. You are responsible for keeping track of your accomplishments.
Sharon reminded us February dues are due.
Robbie asked how many plan to go to SRD this year. We will stay in Springfield on Friday night April 21. We have 6 rooms reserved but will see if we need more. About 10 people indicate an interest in going so Jean will try to book two more rooms. The six rooms we have reserved are King Beds with only one bed to a room.
Robbie announced there is a new coordinator for Eastern Missouri, Linda Wilcox. In the future they will attempt to schedule SRD in the central part of the state.
Please note your January TOPS magazine has the TOPS International bylaws in the center of the magazine.
With no other business meeting was adjourned with our motto. “If It Is TO Be It Is Up To ME.”
