Blair’s Weekly Update 12-11-2016

Congratulations – you did it!!!

Congrats to all of the participants and finishers!! Great job to our many first timers! Great job!!!

Da Comment Corner:

Da Stairs:

Climbing up no problem; going down – a problem!

Picnic:

This coming Sunday is the “after the marathon” picnic; it is a potluck so please bring your favorite dish to share. Zippy’s chili and rice will be provided. Families, friends, and acquaintances are all welcome. There is a $1 charge per person.

Mahalo – Staff leaders; Board members and Dr. Scaff and Donna:

Please thank all of your staff leaders for their leadership and dedication in assisting all of us on our “journey”. Perhaps some of you might look into volunteering to be staff members next year – only one marathon qualifies you. It is a great way to “give back” to the clinic. Please also give a hearty “mahalo” to the board members who do a lot of “behind the scenes” organizing – Chairman – Bruce Mullikin, Norm Uyeda,Peter Garcia, Jeff Beard, Luanne Murakami, Val Ogi, Muriel Taira, Stephen Zane, Maile Burgey, Bob Lew and Blair Hoashi. And lastly, please thank Doc and Donna for all of their contributions to the clinic.

Da Best!

The updates will be on “leave” until the clinic starts up in March next year! Thanks to all for your very nice comments about the newsletter and see you all next year!
