Barre Heritage Festival 5K this Sunday at 10 a.m! Jackie Jancaitis and her Rehab Gym helpers could use a few CVR volunteers, but she thinks you should come and run it if you can.

CVR Birthdays this Week!
Happy Birthday this week to: Lori Lacroix, Deirdre Ellerson, Cindy Gardner-Morse (new AG!), Miccal McMullen, Alana Bonner, Fabienne Pattison.

Bob Howe has announced a July 31 deadline for submissions to the CVR Newsletter. Please send him your stories and photos from the summer’s accomplishments! lucycarol18@gmail.com. The newsletter precedes an August 14 club meeting (site TBD).
