TOPS 446

Take of Pounds Sensibly Chapter 446 had awards day Oct. 8. The chapter members have been doing a good job at eating healthier and losing extra weight. Some members are slow losers and some are a bit faster. The important thing to remember is never give up.

One member, Barinda Golden, was among a group of published poets and authors who were invited to meet first lady Laura Bush on the lawn of the White House. She has received an award for her writing.

The chapter is happy for you, Barinda.

At the Oct. 15 meeting, BettyJo will talk about whole grains.
