Doug Kluge reaches 200!!!
Congrats and thanks to the first MMM athlete to reach 200 times at MMM, none other than the universally popular Doug Kluge!
On April 13, 2009 when Doug and wife Julie showed up at the first MMM, they had no idea they had stumbled upon a weekly labor of love. Since that day Doug has volunteered at nearly every MMM. You can’t arrive too early to see his smiling face, as he is there before any of us, greeting the first arrivals. He has a smile and a kind (or funny) word for everyone!
Thank you Doug for all you do for MMM!!

***MMM LOST & FOUND***
This walking stick was left at MMM on March 18. A gentlemen went for a walk and volunteered to pick up trash, and left his walking stick at the front table. He never returned to pick it up. If this is your walking stick, please claim it at the front table at next Monday’s MMM!
