Golden Goalies – to our health

Golden Goalie “losers” are lighter now than before the holidays!

Bea Loozer What can we do to be healthier starting in February of 2016? That might be a better question than, “How can we lose weight this year?” Of course, the two questions are related.

Golden Goalies

Golden Goalies salute the Keepers
