ood February to everyone!

2011 rushed by in a whirlwind, and 2012

seems to be moving the same way, very

fast. HCSC hopes to keep up by offering activities

strong; if only the weather can hold out. With our

board positions are described

many more positions that are in need of filling for

next year as well. The February meeting, which is

an evening event this month, will have more

information on specific positions. Being part of the

board is a great way to meet others while providing

Rain, Sun, Hail, Thunder, and Snow all in

one day!! Well does the Thrift Shop have

an answer to this Madness...

Yes, we do!!

Bring those Winter

Clothes by and

make some money

for those Spring

Fashions that are

soon to be coming

in. Reminder – The

Thrift Shop is not

accepting any Clothing/Shoes during the month of

March so get those Fashions in NOW while you

have time. We will be throwing out the Old and

bringing in the New Spring/Summer Fashions.

So don't let Mother Nature

throw you off your game,

bring those fashions in for

a little pocket change.

If Clothing is not on your

agenda then what about that

crazy decoration or piece of

furniture that your aunt bought

you for Christmas that just

doesn't go with anything!! We

have a nice shelf for those too.

If you don't know what to do with it, then the ladies

at the Hohenfels Thrift Shop know just what is in

store for your item.

Tuesday and Thursday

mornings! I am getting

boooooooored with the

treadmill and since the

weather is not that bad

(relatively), if the conditions

are good, I would like to

head outside. It's not that cold once you get moving,

and it is more strenuous than the treadmill so you

will get an even better workout in the same amount

of time.

I am excited to see so many of us participating in

the Lose to Win! You go, ladies! Good luck to all!

I would love to see a big turnout for the Box Run

this spring. Nothing has been released yet but it is

typically a 10K, a 5K and a 3K fun run. It was a lot

of fun last year. There is plenty of time to train for it

if you want to run it - but many people walked last

year. (Or hobbled on crutches, like one of our

members!) If you are unsure of a training plan,

email me and I can get you hooked up with one.

There are also close half marathons in Regensburg

and Neumarkt if that is on your bucket list. You

have plenty of time to prepare for it, even if you

cannot yet run a half mile!

Lastly, Tshirts...

If you would like a Tshirt, please email me

(roseisonthego@gmail.com) asap. I am going

to set a deadline of 1 MARCH for pre-orders,

in order to get them by the Box Run. If there are not

25 ordered (all total), I will not be ordering. You DO

NOT have to be a Run/Walk Sub clubber to order

one! They look great in Body Blast classes too. ;)

Cost is $20, the front will be like last year's, the

back will say "jetzt oder nie" and the print will be

pink on black shirt.
