January Newsletter is available!

CVR Birthdays this Week!

Happy Birthday to: Salvador Acosta, Marsha Bancroft (new AG!), Anna Milkowski, Margaret Brigham, Jim Flint, Bob Murphy, & Tom Shanley!

I was going to send out 2 emails this week: the Weekly News and Notes and the January CVR Newsletter, but I decided that you could handle 2 things at once. I’ll put the newsletter link at the bottom to help you make it through the brief notes. Thanks so much to Bob Howe and all contributors for a fun read.

The first Winter Long Run of 2018 (This time really, Jeff says he has a good feeling about it) will be hosted by John Martin from the SHAPE building at VTC in Randolph Center. Contact John for any specific details. He has already mapped out a 10K and a 14 mile run for us to choose from. Be ready to run Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.

John Martin has received lots of RSVP’s for the Annual Volunteer Dinner and Awards, but if you have not done it yet, RSVP now. John’s email is: Verify you are on THE LIST to be sure you get in free. Otherwise, you’ll need to get $26 to John Martin by Jan 23 for your registration and/or for any guests who are not on the list.

For some fitness/running entertainment on these dark evenings….

Then, I discovered that Friday night offers a GMC slideshow by 2 local runners who (as I’ve told them several times) should be CVR members:
January 19, Friday – Slideshow: Mother-Daughter Long Trail Hiking. Montpelier. Come to look and listen as Montpelier Green Mountain Club members Lexi and Linnaea Shear, present a slideshow on their LT End-to-End hike this past summer. 7:00 p.m. T.W.
