Have a great Summer!

Club Meeting July 1st, 2021

Thanks to everyone who made it to the July meeting. We played some tag with the raindrops but it kept the temperatures cool for the ~3 mile Dennis Dash and ultimately the rain held off for us.

Meanwhile, Bill Kilcoin, Phil Zwickl, and Deanna Bradley (on veggie burgers), were able to stoke up the outdoor charcoal BBQ and propane grills and served up burgers, (some with cheese) and dogs that really 'hit the spot'. There were also fruits, shrimp, and other dishes and I do have a cup in the fridge of Suzy's that I plan to have for lunch.

Was good to feel an in-person gathering like this of our local runners and friends and to hear about the events ahead and some plans as the summer unrolls. And IMHO, was an excellent way to kick off the July 4th weekend, along with the Illuminate Goshen, Smallwood, and Firecracker 5ks races. And Mark Hughes playing the tenor sax to kick off the run was just plain inspiring. Thanks Mark! Will get the video and photo album posted soon.

The actual club meeting was brief and afterwards stories about Dennis were shared with some of his immediate family there to fill in details. I will give you a better update in the pending July Newsletter.

Please note, there will be no August Club meeting as the Summer Party will be held August 13th. If you need to get in touch with the club please use the information off the contacts page.

Have a safe and wonderful summer season, and please keep an eye on all those we share the roads with.

The Orange Runners Club monthly meeting in July will be in honor and memory of Dennis Toscano at the outdoor Kiwanis Pavilion, Maple Hill Park in Middletown, NY.  [map]

We are planning for a ‘Pot Luck’ event with the club providing some grill-ables, so bring your favorite dish, drink, or dessert to share.

There is also a run/walk named the Dennis Dash from the venue starting about 5:30pm so you can work up an appetite. Will have a signup sheet on site please leave your name and time.

And for those that did not know Dennis he was a former club member, top photo at left is from an '07' meeting. And more than that he was an active member of the running community, supporting events and rising to become a president of our sister club the Sullivan Striders. His untimely passing was a shock and a reminder, of the dangers we all share on the roads with distracted drivers.

Please plan to attend - No RSVP required, just be here.

Maple Hill Park Venue looks pet friendy - and we could use some ground food patrols ;-)
