Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS)
TOPS chapter ME#339 meets at UMM each week on Tuesday mornings at 11 am with the aim of keeping our community healthier by encouraging members to eat less and do some kind of exercise.
The membership has grown rapidly in recent years as folks have heard about the success stories. This chapter was started in 2003 with Suzanne Mace as Leader.
In October 10 members of this chapter attended the state of Maine Fall Rally held in Brewer with a Western theme. Many awards were given out including some for those from Machias.
Everyone enjoyed the skits and wonderful music provided by two TOPS members from the Portland area. The day was an encouraging time for all as well as a fun get together for friends from all over the state of Maine.
Thanks go to the UMM college for a chance to make a difference in this area.
