A tentative date has been set for the 2015 Jaguar Jog: September 20th. However, while a date has been reserved with the village, we’re still in need of chairs for the event! If you’d like to see the Jaguar Jog tradition continue and might be interested in co-chairing the event, please contact Rita Brezina or Valerie Hardy.
Much more specific information to follow, but we would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the hours of planning the event chairs Carrie Grebel and Michelle Aleksiunas – along with the rest of the spring fundraiser committee – have been putting in to prepare for the March 20th “LP4P” event. The evening is sure to be chockfull of fun, great prizes, and exciting experience sign-ups. We hope to see you all there!
