She joined the group while living in Downey, Calif., and then continued her membership after moving to Mariposa. Parrish reached her goal weight (set by her doctor) during her first year in TOPS, becoming a KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly).

She has contributed her talents over the years as area “KOPS Kaptain Leader,” secretary, TOPS Area Recognition Days convention coordinator and weight recorder.

Forty yellow roses were awarded to Parrish for her 40 years of dedication to TOPS.

The celebration culminated with a luncheon at the Charles Street Dinner House.

Congratulations Elaine! I met

Congratulations Elaine! I met Elaine through my mother Verna Wass who was also in TOPS. Elaine encouraged her to stay in TOPS and helped her stay on track. I was very impressed by this organization mostly because of my encounter with Elaine. Thank you for everything you did for her. Wishing you many more years of membership in TOPS.
