Meeting Notes

Geri Poage was our speaker this morning. She is a health coach representing Take Shape for Life. She helps people lose weight through good health habits of enough sleep, lots of water, moving, being energetic and eating right. There meal replacements and you eat one every 2-3 hours. Then you have a healthy evening meal. Once you reach your target weight there is a maintenance program to help maintain your weight. It costs approximately $11.00/day to replace 5 meals. It also includes resistance training and exercise.

Geri is quitting social work to work with Dave Crabill and work helping people lose weight. On Sept. 3 she will be participating in a health fair in Lapeer. There will be vendors there to promote healthy mind, body and finances.

We had a great group of guys gather for breakfast and fellowship this morning. Jeff Dennings bought the crown for only $1.00. This Sunday at 8:00 AM is the Children’s Miracle Network. We have a good number of members signed up to be there and answer phones and represent our club. Next Thursday after our breakfast the fund raiser committee will meet. Then our board will meet at 6:00 PM at the Bridge. The Leadership Summit is 5/13 and Jack Proffett and Jeff Dennings will be attending. Art Ridley won the 50/50.
