VFW Logan Post 5.1K

Somerville, MA, December 20, 2001


Hosted by the Somerville 
Striders Athletic Club

There is only one thing tougher than owning real estate in Lawrence, Massachusetts and that's beating Alex Filides of the Greater Boston Track Club and a bud of Papa Clyde on a Thursday Night in Somerville, Massachusetts..and Peter "the Golden Greek" Eliopolous of Lowell, MA. has done both...a for life subscription to the Hockamock Swamp Rat and a life time supply of mousaka is due him:>) I'll supply the mousaka!!

The wave continues over at the VFW Logan Post...many regulars jumping ship early to pick-up last minute items on sale for the holidays but the slack was picked up by an unexpected visit from the crew on the other side of the tracks..Papa Clyde only gives a pardon to "his" crew for sneaking out on the gratious sponsor early before supporting it for family, holiday matters, death and a meeting with the I.R.S....a triple double oy vey on this one!!

A special presentation was made tonight...heaps of praise has been bestowed on our police and fire departments lately and little has been made of our guys and gals overseas...so tonight New England Clydesdale & Filly Racing Federation presented one of it's Boston Marathon running club waivers for the 2002 Boston Marathon to member "Big" Bob Barnes of Arlington, Massachusetts...Bob was a Marine in the 106th U.S.A. Marine Corp. Anti-Tank division a few moons ago and in 2002 he will be racing in the 2002 106th Boston Marathon...representing the U.S.A. guys and girls oversees...the training begins:>)

Yup, we had a race tonight folks...and we got a big one next week..Somerville Fire Fighters 5.1Km.....HAPPY HOLIDAYS
