TOPS 0077

TOPS Chapter 0077 had total losses for the week of 64 3/4 pounds.

The losses were credited to a new "buddy" program initiated the week before.

The best TOPS losers were Edna Jones and Kathy Freese, who both shed more than five pounds. The best KOPS losers were Jean Betker and Dianne Keely.

Jones won the get-r-done prize and Carol LeClaire won the Ha! Ha! prize. The no-no snack is snack crackers.

Betty Jones, Trudy Heather and Cleo Burger accepted Pound Puppies for encouragement.

The summer food drive netted 760 items and $35.

Donna Blackowitz was the best loser for the time frame, while Patsy Martin and Louise Kline won the drawing. Cindy Ryder presented the program titled "Salt vs. Sodium." She said sodium is a necessary essential mineral while salt is sodium chloride. She said the recommended daily intake of sodium is 2,400 milligrams, but 4,000 to 7,000 milligrams can easily be ingested in a day.

She said to read labels of processed foods and strive for balance with a variety of fresh and nonprocessed foods.

The new secret pal season will begin in September.
