Shape Up now has over 100 members! At the members’ request, we are creating new fun activities. First, we have started a walking group: SUV Roadsters. Any member can sign up and call a walk anywhere, anytime for folks to join. In a program for the community, Kari Bell, who cooks great recipes at the Thriftway demo section, is presenting "Friends with Veggies" every Wednesday.
