New TOPS Chapter
Paves the Way to Healthy Lifestyle

Owasso/Collinsville, OK – There is a new option in town to help residents of Owasso and Collinsville realize a healthier lifestyle. TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), a nonprofit weight-loss support organization, is establishing a new local chapter. Weekly meetings will be held at New Life Assembly of God Church. An information meeting to determine the best date and time for the majority of new members will be held on Wednesday the 15th of September at 9:00 am at the church located at German Corner on 129th Street, 12215 North Garnett Road. If you would like to find out about this meeting (and more about TOPS), please contact Kathy Journagan at 918-271-8584. Experience for yourself the weight-loss support and wellness information for which TOPS is well-known.

“At TOPS, we understand that losing weight is a journey. It is the consistent encouragement, understanding, and strength from others who are struggling with similar issues that makes this organization so impactful,” says Kathy Journagan, Area Captain. “I encourage anyone seeking an affordable, informative, ongoing, weight-loss support program to experience the power of TOPS.”

TOPS Club Inc. is the original weight-loss support and wellness education organization. Founded over 65 years ago, TOPS is the only nonprofit, noncommercial weight-loss organization of its kind. TOPS promotes successful weight management with a “Real People. Real Weight Loss.®” philosophy that combines support from others at weekly chapter meetings, healthy eating, regular exercise and wellness information. TOPS has about 170,000 members – male and female, age seven and older – in nearly 10,000 chapters throughout the US and Canada.

Visitors are welcome to attend their first TOPS meeting free of charge. Membership is affordable at just $32 per year. To find a local chapter, view or call 800-932-8677.

Would it be possible to put a non profit announcement online? I have included one for the TOPS group – Take off pounds sensibly – they are adding a new chapter for this area and thought people might want to know.

Thanks so much! -- Maria Alexander (9/7/2015)
