Our President Speaks!
From Milers President Jeanine Burnett: We are coming to the last few months of another fantastic year: three very successful events (Donut Run, Spring Has Sprung Run, and Crazy Creek Beer & Brat Run), with one more to go. The Ninth Annual Turkey Trot (2-mile walk and 3-mile jog) will be held at Hidden Valley Lake on Thanksgiving Day at 9 AM (free and open to the Lake County Community), wrapping up our Miler year.This year we have been able to donate more than $3,000 to youth sports, education scholarship funds, and other nonprofits, which means all of you deserve a huge “thank you.” We could not pull off these events without our club-member community support in the form of volunteerism and of course actual participation in the events on race day. → Be sure to put the Annual January Club Champagne Brunch and walk/run on your calendar, to be held at the Burnett’s residence in HVL on Saturday, Jan. 7th at 10 am. Every club member is encouraged to attend —including your little ones—for this traditional Miler festivity; guests are welcome also. This celebration of our club’s successes will include a short election process and a picture-taking of our entire motley crew! → Speaking of elections, Chiyako Ito is stepping down as secretary at the end of December. This means that we have an open secretary spot to fill. This position requires that you be able to make most of the officers’ meetings (generally once a month, in South County), and record the minutes, etc. … You will become an important part of our decision-making process, helping to steer the direction of our club. Let me know if you are interested, and if you think another Miler would be a great secretary for our club, please encourage him or her to step forward. Thank you Chiyako for your many years of service to the Milers! → It might seem like it is eons away, but we are already beginning to plan for our 10th annual Spring Has Sprung Run (HVL, Sunday May 20) and our third annual Donut Run and Walk (Kelseyville, Saturday April 28). As race director for the 10th Anniversary of the Spring Has Sprung Run- I am soliciting NOW for people interested in LEADing a sub-committee for this exciting event:
