Free Fall Classic 5k Charity Donations

I am so pleased to let RR members know that our first donation of $1,500 has been received by the Homeless Center of Strafford County.  This week I will be dropping off a $1,500 check to Jerry’s Food Pantry. This year we are also donating $100 to End 68 Hours of Hunger.  This is a volunteer effort to provide backpacks of food to students in Rochester schools to ensure they have food over the weekend when they do not have access to school meals.  Thanks so much to all the volunteers who made this race a success. The Free Fall Classic has truly become a community event. This is how a RR membership supports a club activity. We cannot do it without all your help.

Officers 2018

During our December Christmas Party/meeting, election of Officers took place for 2018.  After serving the club for the past two years, Ken Houle, Vice President, and Bethany Robinson, Secretary, decided not to continue for the this year. I cannot say enough good things about the work both of them did for RR.  Currently the Officers are; Thom Flynn, President, Mike Andrews, Treasurer, and Bill Leonard, Web-Master. Bill has been gracious in offering to help keeping track of memberships. We continue to welcome any club member who may be interested in filling either Ken or Bethany’s position.

Membership

Reminder to members that dues can be paid by mail or done online. Membership is $20 dollars per individual and $25 per family. Please renew on-line (where you can print your membership card) https://www.runreg.com/rrc-2018.  Our club is a non-profit and dues go right back into supporting club activities.   

BAA-Boston Marathon Bibs

RR was unsure, like many running clubs, if we would be receiving any Boston Marathon Invitational bibs this year.  The Boston Athletic Association (BAA) told clubs last year that due to more individuals qualifying for Boston and running for charities, fewer invitational bibs would be available in the future. However, we got a late surprise from the BAA. RR received two invitational bibs in January. It is such an honor that we have received the bibs again this year.  Last year the Officers decided that if bibs were received, they would be awarded by the Officers based on the member volunteer times and club participation. The Officers offered the bibs to the club members with the most volunteer hours and Bill Leonard and Regina Flynn accepted. Congratulations to both for all the work they have done for the club!
