Club Monthly Meetings

May 2022 Public Meeting

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the exciting and memorable May 4th club meeting. Evidently the "Force" was with us as initially we found ourselves without a venue for the meeting at 15 minutes before the start! Command was given to "pivot" and so we did.

With the help of many members and the board the location was 'pivoted' in real time to a new location. It is times like this that makes me proud to be president of this organization. Well done to all. So with enough food and drink and thanks to all those RSVPs,

we were able to move things right along to the presentation by club membership, Valerie Kilcoin for the Honorary Lifetime Membership to George Shurter whose presence and participation in the Orange Runners Club and his personal ability and dedication to the local running community we were privileged to acknowledge during this event. And yes! There was cake involved.

Special visit by longtime contemporary of George's, Frank Giannino also provided us a glimpse into the past with photos from George's High school days and some history of the glory days.
You really had to be there to appreciate the thread of local running history that was being unwound, by Frankie G., but am planning to have a summary report of the event in the upcoming June Sweat Gazette newsletter to try and help to do it more justice. Look for it in your emailbox around June 1st.

We also had a slideshow put together in honor of George's induction to lifetime member status by Allie Henson that was running in the background. Here is a link to an online version for you to enjoy.
