Do you need a little motivation to take off those extra holiday pounds? You can “lose (pounds) to win (money)” with this friendly competition among friends at ACC. You’ll need cash for the jackpot and you’ll need self determination to take off those pounds and hopefully have fun doing it. At the Center, there are some free exercise programs to participate in plus some classes available for a small fee to help get rid of those unwanted pounds. Weigh-in is on Mondays at 12:45 p.m. For more details, just call 723-3237.
