Runner Background The Holmes Runner is the voice of the Holmes Run Community. Sponsored by the Holmes Run Acres Civic Association, The Runner has been written, printed, and distributed regularly since 1952. The Runner is published quarterly and is free to Civic Association members and by subscription to all others. The Runner welcomes appropriate articles, news, poetry, illustrations and suggestions! Contact Mary Beth Gardiner or Haleh Peterson for further information. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Runner - Winter 2017 issue
The theme of the Winter 2017 issue of the Holmes Runner is “Hobbies and Pastimes: The things we do in our precious free time.” Are you a collector? Build model airplanes or Lego skyscrapers? Are you a knitter? Have you recently taken up the banjo? Tell us about those activities outside of your job and family that enthrall and entertain you.
We’d love to have any other articles, photos, or poems that may not match the theme but may be of interest to the neighborhood as well.
Also, please send your news announcements, such as births, graduations, marriages, etc., for our Talk of the Acres column.
Deadline for submissions is January 17.
Thank you! Holmes Runner co-editors, Mary Beth Gardiner and Haleh Peterson ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Runner Schedule (Issue and delivery time)
