TOPS Chapter 9319 El Dorado Springs met in The Hill Church, 1300 S. Summer St, El Dorado Springs on Thursday, Oct. 27, for their regular weigh-in and meeting.
Laura Hicks, Leader, called the meeting to order.
Jan led us in singing “Halloween Song.”
We said our TOPS & KOPS Pledges
Laura led us roll call; Nineteen members weighed in. We had a 6.6 gain and a 19.4 loss resulting in a net loss of 12.8! There were many who had very good losses. Warren H was the best loser with a loss of 2.2 lbs. Congratulations Warren!
We welcomed our Area Advocate, Claudia who is visiting our chapter. Claudia brought some of the items that were given out at the Fall Rally for those who planned to attend but were not able to make it. She also brought everyone pudding cups that did not get passed out at the Fall Rally. She gave us the sad news that she will retire as our advocate as of Dec. 31. She has enjoyed her time as a TOPS representative but is ready to spend more time with her husband. We wish her well and hope she continues to visit our chapter just for fun. She told us there will probably not be any more “Fall Rally’s” Randy is wanting to go to two “Fun Days” instead. He is looking at having one in August and one in March and asking Chapters to host these in their town. The hosting chapter would find a venue, decide on serving food or not and could maybe hold a silent auction to help fund the expense. These are just ideas Randy has for now and we will be hearing more as time goes on. Claudia also give us more information on the “Triple Crown Challenge.” The cost to enter is $5; you must have lost weight at the weigh in immediately following Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. A prize of a Triple Crown Pin will be awarded at SRD in April. Winners Must be at SRD to receive the prize.
Margie prepared a very cute skit. Margie (the bad witch who tempted members with her snickers bars) Marie, good witch #1 who gave good suggestions and Jean witch #2 also gave good suggestions. Linda C was the MC. Margie was so good in her role as the “Bad Witch”
With no other business meeting was adjourned with our motto
