A year rolls by quickly, too quickly.  Car insurance due for renewal already!  The agent shuffled through the paperwork and scrolled through the info on the computer screen.  The car is registered under my husband's name...


The club held our Annual Awards Celebration on Friday, March 9 at the Cedar Hill Golf Club and the dinner and reception was an outstanding success with over 80 in attendance. All Harriers members were invited to attend the celebration to honour members' 2017 achievements, performances and contributions and to enjoy social time with fellow runners over dinner.  A special thanks to each of the 5 club Executive members, Kathleen Birney, Heather Afford, Sonja Yli-Kahilia, Gary Duncan and Bob Reid, for writing and delivering the script for the evening which is posted below.

New Year’s Eve "Run Through Time"

by Susan Jones

This last “race” of the year is one of my favourites.  I am not quite sure how many years it has been, but it is a regular feature of my New Year’s Eve celebration and a great way to end the year.  This year was no exception.
