New take on CVR logo for clothing orders that will be taken soon. See below…

Fallen Leaves 5Ks

The second Fallen Leaves 5K is this Saturday!  The race begins on the Montpelier High School track at 9am.  Just $5! The first was quite a success, with 87 runners. Results are here.

There are still folks who haven’t volunteered for a race this year.  Remember the last 2 Fallen Leaves are your last chance, or you will be taken out of the Race Series results.  Contact Tim Noonan to volunteer.


We will be ordering new CVR clothing beginning next week.  The vendor will open an on line store for two weeks during which you can shop and order CVR shirts. We will let you know when the store is open and we plan to close it by Thanksgiving.  That way you can have your shirts before Christmas. Thanks to Richarda Ericson  for setting this up.  You will get an email about it next week.  Here is the vendor if you want to check them out early.

New Bike Path

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday to officially open the new portion of the Montpelier Bike Path (or Siboinebi path).   Cross Vermont Trail will hold a short bike ride on the path leaving from Barr Hill on Barre St. at 2:15 and then the ceremony is at 3:15.  Information here.
