  1. I ran the Buttercup race a couple of weeks ago. Would someone please call me with regards to The Friends of Arlee Scholorship program. It may be beneficial to the program.

      I apologize for not answering you email right when it came in. Another committee member is supposed to check out the comments and they missed sending yours to me.
      Are you still interested in Friends of Arlee Scholarship program. I didn’t want to call before I found out if you are still interested.
      I will be out of town from March 2 until March 17 so if I don’t get back to you it until after that it is because I don’t have telephone access.
      Thank you for your interest in our program.

  2. I love the Buttercup Run and was just wondering if the shirts are the same style they were last year. I am trying to decide what size to order when registering. If they are like last years shirts I’ll get the same size. The shirts last year were by far my favorite shirts out of all of the races I have ever participated in. I wear it a lot running, hiking, biking, kayaking etc. Thanks!

    1. Sorry for the delayed reply, I have been out of the country. Hope this gets to you in time. The t-shirts are back to the old style, cotton unisex sizing. As an example, I usually wear a men’s medium last year I needed a men’s small. This year should be the normal sizing.
