VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Hi All,
We are nearing our signature event, the Leafpeepers Half Marathon and 5K on October 2. Proceeds from Leafpeepers funds most of CVR’s activities and donations throughout each year. To make this race a success, we need you to come and volunteer, race or possibly do both! June reports that many volunteers from previous years have been unable to commit this year, so everyone who can volunteer needs to contact June and let her know you will be there. She can work with you to find the best assignment to fit your schedule that day. June’s email is : jaburr@gmavt.net
Remember that to be included in the final tally of the CVR/ORS race series, you need to volunteer at at least one CVR event, so this is your big chance to get it done!

Perfect summit day for Sandy Colvin and Gail Pelkey

Hi All,

The CVR/ORS series continues with the Northfield Savings Bank 5K on Sept 3. The 1 mile is at 9:30, the 5K at 10:30. Rowly tells me he has enough volunteers, so all of you can participate. I think a Saturday morning 5K is great because you can get your race in and then play or work as hard as you want the rest of the long weekend without worrying about how it will affect your race. Bring your friends and neighbors to help Northfield celebrate 5 years of recovery from Irene.

Leafpeepers 2016 coming right up! Join the party!

Hi All,

The August CVR meeting at Beth’s had a talkative group of 18 members present. Here are a few tidbits to share:
Leafpeepers is nearing half full at 431 half marathoners registered and 139 in the 5K. Encourage your friends and family to sign up soon. June Burr is starting to gather the list of Leafpeepers volunteers. Motivational signs need updating–a fun volunteer opportunity for some artistic types and you can still run the race.
Mutt Strutt still needs a new Race Director or it will not happen next year. Let me know if you might want to help.
Berlin Pond and Leafpeepers need certification. John Valentine and I are the current certifiers, but would love to train anybody who would like to help out.
Discussion on including a longer race like the GMAA Common to Common 30K again in the CVR/ORS series for 2017
Donna and Eric will again provide a spaghetti supper for all participants at Sodom Pond 4 Miler Sept 14.
