What better place for a discussion of upcoming cycling events than Nellie Bly’s Olde Tyme Ice Cream Parlour?
The Annual Meeting of the Historical Society convenes on Tuesday, May 24 at 7pm.
Iris Gaughan, our cycling event liaison, explains our need for some volunteers:
Dear HSR Members and Riverton Friends… Please note that the Historic Riverton Century and 3-Mile Community Ride will take place on June 11th , and the Historic Riverton Criterium on June 12th. A description of this two-day event is in the current issue of The Gaslight News.
THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF RIVERTON WILL BE THE PRIMARY BENEFICIARY OF FUNDS COLLECTED FROM THE HISTORIC RIVERTON CRITERIUM.
We need your help! For the Criterium on June 12th, 24 corner marshals are needed…this entails standing at one of the race corners making sure no one crosses the street while the bike racers are passing. Each marshal will spend one hour at a corner. The marshal needs to stand for the entire hour. If you feel you are not able to physically perform this task, perhaps you have someone in your family or a friend who could step in to help. You must be 16 years of age to be a marshal. Once you volunteer, specific directions will be sent directly to you. If you feel you are not able to do this task, volunteers are needed to sell tee shirts. We need 2 people per hour for the 5 hour duration of the race, each person working one hour.
Please contact Iris Gaughan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 856-829-8671 if you are able to give an hour of your time on June 12th.
Other items on the Annual Meeting menu include making nominations for Board members and ice cream sundaes for all members attending. – JMc
