President's Message June 1997'

Now that the warmer weather is upon us, our attendance at the Tuesday evening workouts has swelled noticeably. No more reflective vests, hats and gloves. Steve has all sorts of gruelling workouts planned...of course that’s why we keep coming out.

As those who were there can attest, our membership drive party at the Saint & Sinner Pub on May 6th was a great success. Adrienne Lewis and Jane Franklin, our hard-working social directors, together with Tim Klassen putting the membership packages together, did a fantastic job planning the evening and making sure everything ran smoothly. They were helped out by Michael Brennan and Bill Sloan. Finally, we should all give Connie Cadotte-Fearn a big thank you for putting together the grab bags that everyone went home with. I want to personally thank all of these dedicated XSNRG members for making our club the successful group that it is. Look elsewhere in this issue of the newsletter for the formal acknowledgement of all of the sponsors and donors of prizes.

Remember to keep your calenders marked for the first Tuesday of each month for our social night. Normally the social nights are at the Saint & Sinner Pub, but there are some special nights this summer. The Canada Day social (which happens to fall on the first Tuesday in July) will be held at my place and the first Tuesday in August (Aug. 5th) will be our “Party in the Park”. More information about these events will be given out at the runs.

Happy running,

John Petrosoniak
