7th Annual Happy As A Clam
3x1 mile Relay Race and Family Fun Run
On Saturday, October 25th, we
held the 7th Annual Happy As A Clam Road Race. It was a little different this
year, with a kids fun run and then a 3 person relay team, where each team
member ran 1 mile to total 3.1 miles. The 135 participants had a blast, there
were smiles all around (especially from me). Thank you again to all the
runners. A special thanks to the Essex Volunteer Fire Department and
Police Department, which kept us all safe. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs.
Randall and Mrs. Roberts for opening up the school to allow us to use power. It
allowed us to have some great music to get us pumped up for the race. And, of
course thank you DJ David Alger, it would not have been the same without you!
Also thank you to our sponsors,
making this event possible!

What an amazing evening we had for our Hoedown! Thank you so much to Mr. Carpenter, Daisy Nell, Captain Stan on guitar and banjo, Jack Schwartz on the
double bass, Jay Keefe on fiddle, and Pat Conlon on mandolin.
It takes many hands to pull off an event this size. A very big thank you to all the parents who organized, came early, worked throughout, and stayed late to make this evening happen!
