SAFETY ĀEDaylight Saving Time is OVER! Please wear a reflector vest, a light, or white clothing and WATCH OUT FOR CARS! Reflector vests or a small clip-on blinking light are available at local sporting good stores (like Sports Chalet). Itís a small investment (under $15) for safety.
BOARD MEETING ĀEARECís biennual elections are just one agenda item at our next meeting. A slate of directors needs to be finalized. PLEASE talk to the Todds or myself if you have even a little interest in directing the future of this club. Other issues to discuss include new team t-shirts, membership rates and upcoming social events. The meeting will be on Wednesday, November 19th after the run. Please attend and help make AREC the best running club!
VOLUNTEER THANKS ĀEHeather, Todd B., Margaret, Bernard and I attended the Volunteer Thank-You party this past Sunday. It was a lot of fun, and both Bernard and I took home a raffle prize. The highlight of the night (besides John and Blair making multiple opportunities to tout AREC) was our own Heather Stevens receiving a special award for Most Inspirational Volunteer. I hope this means lots more participants at this weekendís Fila Pancreatic Cancer Challenge! Congratulations, Heather! On the volunteer note, I just want to thank everyone that helped out. Itís nice to see AREC with a notable presence both running and volunteering at our most prominent Long Beach running event! Maybe if AREC puts on a race again (like many years ago), we can get the requisite volunteer help to make it a great event!
