The officers discussed the idea of a NVRC picnic / summer party! With the previous year’s attendance being low the club is trying something new. The next club meeting will be held Tuesday August 14th(instead of August 7th). The meeting will be held at Hi-Way Pizza Pub West on 1301 West College Avenue. The Club members are welcome to park at Hi-Way West and run a loop around the Golf Course (Blue loop, White loop or both!) before the meeting and party. This run isn’t mandatory but we thought it would be fun way to start the summer party. Participants who want to be apart of the run may bring a White Elephant gift for an awards ceremony. This gift maybe something simple as a re-gift, a bottle of Gatorade, or a race t-shirt. We will have a reservation outside at Hi-West Pizza Pubs patio. 

Please save the date for the NVRC Fun Run Summer Pizza Party Tuesday August 14th. More details will be announced by the newly appointed Co-Chairs Marty Mazur and Cheryl Keller Capone.
