Four members of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Chapter 0462 in Smithsburg went to the fall rally in Bel Air, Md.
Fall rally awards were presented to the chapter officers, the best losers over the summer and for perfect attendance over the summer.
The chapter had a contest with the other Hagerstown TOPS chapters to see which chapter could have the most no-gain summer meetings. The Smithsburg chapter won the contest. The next contest will see which chapter can lose the most weight per member from now until the end of March.
On Thursday, Oct. 20, Area Captain Parilee Barber will visit the chapter and lead the program on smart eating.
The chapter meets Thursdays at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 51 S. Main St. in Smithsburg. Weigh-in starts at 5:30 p.m. and the meeting is from 6 to 7 p.m.
