Bob Crowe (president), Dave Eggler (treasurer), Marty Mazur (communications director), Tara Murray (secretary/archivist), Cheryl and Brian Capone, Bob Boozer, Blake Cohen, John Wilcock, Rich Olsen, Dave DeGroote, Carl Miller, Stacey and Scott Falkner, Meira Minard
Bob Crowe is organizing the annual club picnic. The picnic will most likely be held the second Tuesday in August, replacing the regular NVRC meeting as usual. Bob is going to try to reserve the pavilion by the bridge at Spring Creek Park.
Cheryl Capone distributed NVRC singlets and shorts. There are still limited sizes available for purchase. Though quite a few people answered the poll about pricing, not that many people ordered singlets. Cheryl is not sure there is enough interest to order more club apparel now and will probably wait until fall to look at ordering long sleeve shirts.
Dave Eggler reported that Meira Minard will direct the Arts Fest kids races this year. Everything appears to be going smoothly. Watch for a call for volunteers.
Tara Murray (on behalf of John Domico, who was attending his daughter's senior award ceremony) thanked the club for its support over the years of the Centre Volunteers in Medicine Marathoners for Medicine program. Despite hot weather at all 3 marathons this spring (Boston, Pittsburgh, and Poconos, our runners did very well. The NVRC women's open team (Lauren Philbrook, Beth Herndon, and Meira Minard) took fourth in the team competition at Boston, running against teams like the BAA. So far Marathoners for Medicine has raised $48,000 for CVIM this year, just $2,000 short of the $50,000 team goal. You can still contribute at http://cvim.net.
Bob Crowe would like to organize a competition between ROTC units for the Give 'Em 5! Run for Veterans (Oct. 28) and wants to know if anyone would like to help.
Dave Eggler announced that the Herbie's Home Town Loop (Aug. 18) will start in downtown Bellefonte at the corner of Spring and High St. this year. This will make it more a part of the Arts & Crafts Fair.
Bob Boozer invited everyone to run the Speed to Read 5K on June 16 at the Grange Fair Grounds in Centre Hall. It's a fairly flat, fast course.
