January 22 Update

Happy New Year!  OK so I am  a little late, but the sentiment is the same.  Hope the New Year is finding you all happy and active.  I know we have athletes involved in skiing, preseason track & field, and soccer.  Remember to stay active and have fun.  Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

We have a couple events going on this week that I need help with.  First, Tuesday January 23rd is the 8th grade open house at TM for next year.  I would like to have a table there so we can hand out information about our program and talk to the incoming freshman.  The second event that I need help with is on Saturday January  27th.  The JTRR (Juneau Trails and Road Runners) potluck and awards ceremony is being held.  I need a few folks that can go with me and thank them.  Last year they graciously donated money to our program.  We are going to share a few pictures of our season and would love to have a few of you available to thank them and answer questions if there are any.  Please let me know ASAP if you are available.  On both occasions please wear your team jacket.
