The special Annual Meeting of the Winner’s Circle Running Club is held on a Saturday evening in February. This meeting replaces the normal monthly meeting which would have been held on the second Thursday of the month, and is normally, but not always, scheduled for the following Saturday. The annual meeting serves as the election night for the WCRC Board of Directors (nominations are made at the preceeding January monthly meeting), as the awards night for presenting all WCRC annual awards, and as the end of year/beginning of year WCRC party.
The 2016 WCRC Annual Meeting was held on Saturday February 13 at 6:00 PM, upstairs at the Winner’s Circle. Despite the frigid temperature, a vibrant crowd of long-term and newer club members filled the hallowed WCRC trophy room (aka The Circle Skybox Function Room), the smell of pizza and “refreshments” filled the air, as did change! A parade of WCRC 2015 Grand Prix winners lined up to accept their Circle Bucks and overall prizes. The WCRC Annual Awards were presented to some extremely worthy individuals:
2015 Paula Holm Award Winner: Dave LaBrode
2015 Volunteer of the Year: Rick Walsh
2015 Most Improved Runners, Male and Female: Craig Lampert and Ginger Iola
The 2016 WCRC Board of Directors welcomes three new, first-time members and a seasoned core of nine re-elected members! Introducing the 2016 Board of Directors: Betsy Berkenbush, Dave Carroll, Tom Chase, Leanne Corning, Chris Grange, Ginger Iola, Dave LaBrode, Tricia Lavoie, Keith LeBlanc, Josh Thibault, Scott Walsh and Doug Zechel.
