Congratulations were extended recently to two members of TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly), a weight loss support group that meets in Oakdale every Monday morning from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Community United Methodist Church. Mayor Cherilyn Bairos was present recently to help hand out a special award to member, Inez Boss, who won the second place weight loss in her category in Northern California.

Also Chuck Barber, the advocate for chapters of Stanislaus County, happily helped with the presentation.

Honors were also presented to a member of Oakdale 1034. A KOP member who not only lost enough weight to put her into a new category from TOPS to KOPS (Keeping Off Pounds Sensibly), but by reaching her goal. Member Audrey Oliver is queen of the chapter for the year 2020.

This group is open to the public and anyone interested in improving their life by losing weight can contact Oliver at 209-765-7838.
