In the “Loser of the Month,” contest we had a tie between Barbara Grant and Betty Ivey. Receiving charms after Christmas were myself, Kay Grass, Betty Ivey,
Charlotte Marley, Marsha Reed, Barbara Whited, Betty Wyman. Loser of the month for January was Marsha Reed.
As a challenge to oneself, each lady made a challenge for a week. Next week we will reveal our challenge and tell how well or poorly we did.
Diane was in charge of a cup exchange—the exchange was on the program for last week but because of bad weather conditions the meeting was cancelled. The cups were all different but mostly the theme was Valentines Day.
We all wished the challenger a “Happy Birthday.’’ Our next meeting will be Friday, Feb. 28 at the same location. Weigh-in time is 8-8:45 a.m. A meeting begins at 9 a.m. and usually ends an hour later. For more information you may call Betty Ivey at 532-9653 or Charlotte Marley at 757-8483.
