Here’s hoping you enjoy a happy and safe Thanksgiving. As you gather with family and friends around the table for this holiday feast, I hope you—unlike me—are able to maintain at least some semblance of caloric composure. (Sweet potatoes are my downfall. Mmmmm, sweet potatoes…) Though this week’s newsletter is short and sweet, the information contained therein proves that sometimes bigger is better. What could I possibly mean? Check out the blurb below. And quicker than you can say sweet potato casserole with crumbled pecan topping, read it, put it on your calendar, and RSVP to me by THIS Friday.
GVWC Happy Hour – December 12 RESPONSE REQ’D BY THIS FRIDAY!!!
Club members and guests, join us Saturday, December 12 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at Second Sole Short North for light appetizers, adult beverages, and 30% off everything in the store. How amazing is that? For this night only, Second Sole—one of our Founding Partners—will double the Club’s normal discount. Think of what this means to you! In one evening, you can knock out your entire holiday shopping list. Or, if you’re like me, you can buy yourself cold weather gear and other fitness accoutrements, then tell your loved ones you’ve already purchased their gifts for you on their behalf. Planning to join us? RSVP to me by THIS Friday.
But wait, there’s more! In addition to food, drink and terrific store discounts, we’ll fire off some free raffles for gift certificates totaling $250. Everyone gets a raffle ticket simply for showing up. Receive additional tickets (increasing your chances of winning!) for each of the following activities that night:
- bringing a friend
- introducing us to a new Club member
- paying your $10 Club renewal for 2016
- spending at least $50 at the store
Plus the biggest benefit is hanging out with your fellow Club members in their regular (non-sweaty!) clothes. After the Happy Hour, many of us will hang out in the Short North and grab dinner. Planning to join us? RSVP to me by THIS Friday.
Second Sole Short North is located at 662 North High Street next to the Happy Greek. Here’s information on parking options. If meters aren’t available, the Hubbard garage is just 0.3 of mile to the north. Or, park near my house and take CBUS to the Short North! Planning to join us? RSVP to me by THIS Friday.
Seriously. Planning to join us? RSVP to me by THIS Friday.
How to Dress for Cold Weather Walking
Here is an article from the About Health blog with tips on how to dress for cold weather walking. Some of the keys: layering, a good base layer, wicking material, and cover your extremities (i.e., hands and head). Check it out and then you will be armed with information on items to purchase with your fantastic one-day-only 30% discount when you come to the Happy Hour at Second Sole on December 12. Planning to join us? RSVP to me by THIS Friday. And, of course, our partners at Second Sole will be able to assist you and make recommendations.
Motivation of the Week
Thank you one and all for being part of the German Village Walking Club, and enriching my life as well as the lives of your fellow Club members. Without you, our walks would be just a little less joyful. Hope to see you all on Saturday. And as always, whatever you do, finish strong!
