stuff ‘round the mill
Rumor is Marty is leavin’ town June 23rd! Again rumor has it that his house was purchased by an anonymous buyer!? Why anonymous? What is the buyer hiding!?

I think I may know who the buyer could be, it may Pat Callahan! Now that Marty is leavin’ Pat C may feel safe to move back! Pat C was Marty’s neighbor and they HATED each other! (I’m lying, they were like peas in a pod! But don’t tell Marty!)

Actually it very well could be Marty’s son Aaron. Aaron moved to Delaware to get away from Marty so now if Marty is moving to Delaware it stands to reason Aaron may move back to stay one move away and ahead of Marty!

Whoever it is I hope the person(s) are kind and generous community supporters like Marty and Bronwyn have been! They are a blessing wherever they are!

Are y’all ready for this weekend? Have you trained to your best ability? Have you prepared for your role as a volunteer? Preparation, it makes all the difference between a success and a failure! Compete in one of the 3 events, volunteer in any or all 3, or spectate and cheer you heart out! There is place for you in our attempt to show off our community and raise money for OUR Red Cross organization!

Please welcome all to our biggest and best community running event!

Tom Burbage, you are a prince of a man! I/we are so VERY grateful to you for your leadership and handling of our number ONE water stop! I look forward to seeing you there! (I promise it will be before sundown, Lord willin’!)

FROM TOM – The Pocono Area Running Club needs volunteers for the first water stop of the Pocono Marathon on May 21. Over 900 runners pass the water stop in less than 10 minutes so we like to have 15 to 20 volunteers. It’s a fun (and social) way to spend the morning. You get a great view of the race, and you’re finished by 8:15 am.

If you would like to volunteer, or you have any questions, please call me at (570)872-6473 or email Its okay to just show up, but I’d like to have an approximate head count.
Thank you,
Tom Burbage
