News and Notes from Donna

Happy New Year!

CVR Winter Long Runs take a Holiday Break because you all will be at NYE 5K either running or volunteering. You have pre-registered, right? If not, pre-register here now. There is even still time to mail it in and spend 47 cents instead of the $2.10 RunReg fee. Get your family, friends and neighbors to pre-register too. The snow tomorrow should make the course a classic winter event, unlike last year when people could actually run kind of fast.
Contact Ann Bushey if you can volunteer instead of running.

Reservations are still being taken for the Annual CVR Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and CVR/ORS Series Awards on January 26, 2017. Maybe Jeff Prescott has already started consulting with Steven Colbert for his monologue. Contact John Martin to RSVP and remember to check with Jim Flint if your name is not on this list and should be.

Steve Hill reports almost everyone was out of town, so the final Wed night track workout of 2016 was cancelled, but they resume in force next week! Everyone is welcome Contact Steve to be on the list for any last minute changes.

Happy end of 2016!

“What I did on my Christmas Vacation”
Yes, that is my 85 year old mother supporting me. Do you wonder where I get my competitive genes?
My sister got 750 likes (so far) when she posted this on FB, so I had to share.
