News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Bob Emmons, Robert Mercier, Bob Patterson, Tom Mowatt, Christina Guggenberger

Hi CVR Members,

Spring is here…YAY!!! But this year’s mud season is the worst ever. How many of you have got stuck in the mud? Think I know a few. Speaking of mud and Spring, Kaynor’s Sap Run 10K is this Sunday at 11:00 am in Westford. This race is always a fun one because you never know what the road conditions are really going to be like. Usually it is a little bit of this and that and everything. Makes for an exciting race….see you there. Don’t forget the annual dinner tomorrow night at the Road House in Williamstown. Dinner starts at 6 pm.

Next week will be my last news and notes as your president. Stay tuned for some final commentary and thoughts. With that let’s get into this week’s news….most a rehash from previous weeks.

CVR Annual Meeting Sunday 3/27 at 4 PM. Run the Sap run 10K and come back and join us for our annual meeting. For those that want to attend in person, please meet at Ann Bushey’s residence, 7 Hillcrest Dr., Montpelier. For those that want to join virtually please join by clicking this link.

CVR Annual Virtual Meeting

Winter Group Runs
Cold and snowy weather seems to have deterred participation in our Saturday Group Winter Group runs this winter season and now maybe we need to add mud to that list. Another solo attendee for Saturday’s run. For this Saturday we do not have the details planned yet. Some of you will be running Kaynor’s on Sunday so you may want to skip this week. In any case, Heather will try to come up with something.
