What IS up with ELM?

WHAT'S UP WITH ELM you ask??

PLENTY in the next couple of weeks!!

This Saturday (tomorrow) October 17th we are leading a pre-run of the Perseverance 10K Course in Cumberland.

This is a great way for racers to check out the route and prepare for the race course. It will be a scenic tour of the route not a hard run and all paces are welcome! You must pre-register, however, so email me today if you plan on joining us...

Super cool banner c/o ABC for the Perseverance Trail Run! Next Sunday, October 25th 11am start!!!

We still need a few volunteers for next weekends race so please let us know if you can help out! It is a great cause - to raise funds for the Cumberland Community Forest - and a great way to give back to the forest:)

We need pre-race registration volunteers for SATURDAY, October 24th for an hour or more between 1 and 5pm.

AND we still need a few course marshalls for race day.

Hope you can join us!

This is a good old fashioned fall fair with all sorts of activities and events taking place in the Village of Cumberland between 10-4pm. Go to The Cumberland site for all of the details or check it out on the ELM Facebook page.

We will have a table set up promoting the Perseverance Trail Run (inside the OAP hall/Museum) and looking to recruit a few more racers for next weekends run.

AND...I will be entering a 'theme' pie into the 'Best Pie of the Year' contest!!

What started as a whim has turned into something of a personal challenge for I had only baked 1 pie in my life until 2 weeks ago! I have been researching on the google...reviewing old classic cookbooks...picking pie bakers brains...and baking up a storm in the process... They haven't all been pretty but I am hoping things come together for the big day...tomorrow!

Please come down and vote for your favorite (aka MY) pie between 12 and 2pm Cumberland Cultural Centre, 1st floor, OAP hall in Cumberland.

Dave the auctioneer will be auctioning off all the pies following the judging...with proceeds going to the Cumberland Community Schools Program.

What better way to spend a stormy fall day?

Cheers and Happy Fall Trails!
