Past President of CATS, Karen Click saw the story below and was reminded that she too had captured a snap shot of Sock Monkey at a Heads of MTR Meeting last week and requested that we share her pic with you here. Karen said, “Sock Monkey was quite motivational.”
Then on Sunday, Rich Arehart was painting arrows on roads and Sock Monkey appeared and asked to try his hand with the spray can. Turns out, Sock Monkey was really good at it and very enthusiastic, so Rich let him paint several.
Will Sock Monkey be seen again before the week-end? Will his enthusiasm spread?  Will Sock Monkey be seen during the week-end?

sock monkey stuffing partyThe Registration Wizard and his Pie Queen had everything prepared: giant envelopes, labels with team names and items ordered, program books, route sheets & maps, plastic name badges & magnets, painted aluminum license plates & zip ties, MTR 2015 t-shirts & jerseys, and goodies. Sock Monkey was there to cheer us on. 293 giant envelopes are now stuffed and packed in Chiquita Banana boxes and ready to haul to Rockford in the Wizard’s minivan. Happy work completed, we all enjoyed home made delicious pie. Thank you, Dave and Charlotte Dockstader!
