Urgent Message from Pinckney Pacers

A message from our running club leader, Kelli Bates:

Normally I would be printing wavers for the Pacers (Pinckney’s marathon club) this week, but as of right now, we will not have the Pacers this year. I need two adults to volunteer to be the merchandise coordinator (ordering and distributing all of the Pacers gear) and volunteer coordinator (manages the volunteers on the Pacers course). Without these vital positions filled, the Pacers will go away. If you are interested please e-mail me. Thanks for considering!

The Used Book Sale and Chili Feed is fast approaching.  We will start collecting donated books as soon as school starts again (although I do not have a drop-off spot yet).  So as your doing your post-holiday sorting, put those old out-grown books in a bag for Pinckney.  We collect books for all ages.

Chili Feed & Used Book Sale is on the evening of January 23rd.  Books are sold for 50cents each.  Also part of the festivities is a chili contest and pot-luck style feast.  More information to come…
