Donna’s CVR News and Notes

News you can use!

CVR Birthdays this Week!
Happy Birthday this week to: Jacob Miller-Arsenault, Nick Persampieri, Dave Kissner, Shams Ferver, and Meredith Stetter!

CVR Shirts on the starting line at NSB 5K
Nick, Jim & Mack duke it out for series points,
but Lori Crotts does get ahead of them all!

I’m out of town, so just some short reminders this week:

Don’t forget! The Sodom Pond Run Wednesday at 6 is your next chance for CVR/ORS points. Contact Tim Noonan if you can volunteer. Also note changes this year… Registration will be at Fixer-Upper PT across from the Adamant Coop, 5052 Center Rd. Parking can be in the usual places around Adamant (the church and school parking lots and along Haggett Rd.), but unfortunately, no free dinner afterwards (maybe next year).

Leafpeepers Registration closes Sept. 27. Sign up now and/or contact Roger to volunteer:

Our finale to the 2017 CVR/ORS Series, the Autumn Onion is open for registration now too. Good pre-reg discount and it supports one of my favorite local causes, the Cross Vermont Trail. Won’t a bridge across the Winooski with a trail to avoid route 2 between East Montpelier and Montpelier be great some day?

Sandy Colvin will head up the poster party for the Leafpeepers Perry Hill Motivation / Humor signs. Contact Sandy if you would like to participate in the Poster Party. Thank you Sandy!

Greg Wight and John Valentine volunteered to form the nominating committee for next year’s Executive Committee. Please let either of them know if you would consider an officer’s position or would like to help find appropriate people to fill those positions. We definitely need a new President and Vice President in 2018. Ann Bushey needs a co-director for the NYE 5K this year because she will be in CA for some time just before the race. If you can help Ann out, please let her know.
