The one-hour meetings are in the Education Hall at the church (enter through the door on Market Street, close to the parking lot). If you have any questions, call Sherry Norman, 519-8519. We support each other, learn about menu planning, eating healthy and making permanent changes to result in a healthy life. All are welcome to come learn about the program and join. If you have any questions, call Sherry Norman, 519-8519.
