Taking it in Stride...
It was a beautiful day for a run - and hundreds turned out for the Annual Hamden Road Race, held on June 6! The day was filled with not just running, but family activities and great food. Pictured to the left are two of the Hamden Road Race entrants. You'll notice that Board of Education Secretary Adam Sendroff is beating-out Superintendent of Schools Jody Goeler by a nose! (Perhaps that was your strategic plan all along, Mr. Goeler?) :-)
