It is with sadness that we announce that Craig English has decided that this is to be his last year as Chairman of the Washington Grove Labor Day weekend activities.
Craig started chairing the traditional events AND actually created the now-famous Triathlon 35 years ago! His dedication, creativity and humor made this one of the most popular weekends in The Grove and a favorite of kids of all ages.
Joli McCathran also worked alongside Craig for most of those years, doing a valiant job of organizing, tracking and scoring the games, often under very difficult circumstances.
We all thank Craig and Joli for exemplifying the true spirit of volunteerism and for keeping this long standing tradition alive. But now it is time to pass the torch. Who will pick up the torch and keep the Labor Day tradition alive? The Recreation Committee is looking for 1 or 2 dedicated volunteers to take over the Labor Day weekend activities and make them their own. Please email Missy Yachup (email@example.com) or Emily Cavey (firstname.lastname@example.org) to volunteer or to get more information.
Congratulations to this year’s Super Grove Genevieve Hix!!
