Fun Runs (unofficial)

Now that there is more light and a little warmer temps, come to the “unofficial” Fun Runs.  Meet on Tuesday at 5:30pm on the Montpelier Bike Path behind the Dept. of Labor.  This will be a go as you please run for anyone who shows up.  The real Fun Runs don’t start until May.  The first unofficial run yesterday had one dedicated participant; see if we can improve on that next week!

Winter Long Run

This week’s Winter Long Run will be at the Red Hen in Middlesex at 9:30am.  There are paved road options if the dirt roads are muddy. For more information or to tell him will be there, contact this week’s hostGeorge Aitken.

Annual Meeting

The CVR Annual Meeting will be this Sunday, March 17.  The meeting will be at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center at 58 Barre St.  We will meet at 4:30pm for the meeting portion and then finish up between 6 and 6:30pm, at which time we will have pizza brought in.  Also, feel free to bring any dishes you wish to share. 

Note that this year’s meeting is on St. Patrick’s Day.  This means you should wear green to the meeting and even better, a green St. Patrick’s Day race shirt.  The benefit? I will hold a drawing for a special prize.  All who wear green are entered (anything counts but must be a significant amount of green) and those who have the St. Patrick’s Day (or similar Irish theme) race shirt get a double entry.  

If you know you are coming and you want pizza, just reply to this email. That will give me an informal head count.  If you aren’t sure if you are coming, no problem, come anyway, we will have plenty.
