A Message From One Clean Moose
“Anyone buying laundry detergent in ORANGE bottles, save them if you get them empty before August 30th! I don't care what brand, it just needs to be in an orange bottle. I'm on the GAAR race committee and we need them to use as buoys to define the canoe/kayak race lane. We will be putting them out on Ada Hayden before the race on August 31st. Dropping them off in the Moose Lodge lobby would be great, just set them along the wall! Also, don't forget, pancakes at the Moose on the morning of August 31st! Thanks! “ Art Barton
Captain Midnight’s Run for Cystic Fibrosis – A Note From Jeff Margrett
“It's time for me to ask/beg for help and participation with Captain Midnight's Run for Cystic Fibrosis. This year it will be even "bigger and better" with Pepsi, Gatorade, Papa John's, and Panera so far on board for the post race. Really cool "super-hero" style shirts for the first 250 entrants! We may even make it an accurate 3.1 miles this year! Anyway, I will get fliers to all who want them. I will hand them out at Vardo runs and you can register on line at: http://www.zapevent.com/ListActivities.aspx?eventid=224 Volunteers are also very, very welcome. Please e-mail me for more info if needed. Thanks, Jeff Margrett”
(Editor’s Note: Hello, Vardo’s. George Klotzbach here. I wish to remind you of all the fun we had (running and/or volunteering) at this fine event last year. Jeff’s son, Quinn, has Cystic Fibrosis, as you may recall. Jeff is a first class member of Team Vardo, as you may recall. I think you may see, as you may recall, where I am going with this. So: Drop Jeff an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Operators are standing by.)
