There are times when one cannot recognize all the support that the club membership has given of themselves. This is one of those times. The support which the membership has given both to Race Clinic and Special Olympics has been outstanding. This support speaks well of the club and those that have done work on behalf of it should hold their heads high. Normally, we would call out everyone who pitched in to make both clinic and the Special Olympics a success. While there are many of those, we wish to thank our coaches; S. Jupena, Keith, E. Mungai, B. Hunt, Mustache Bob, E. Hessinger, and T. Bigatel; and our lunch coordinators; D. Hessinger and K. Wiley.
