They are the only paid workers, said Adams.
In honor of all the volunteers, Marcia and Tom Adams have started yet another first: a volunteer recognition party. All of the volunteers will be given tickets for a party at the American Legion Hall immediately after the race.
That same day, the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the third annual Chamber Pot race, in which area businesses send teams of runners to compete against each other.
According to Chamber President Marty DeLaney, the team with the best overall time averaged together wins bragging rights and gets the coveted Chamber Pot plaque.
"It's a way to encourage more businesses to take advantage of the opportunity of such a great event, now in its 20th year," DeLaney said of creating the Chamber Pot.
Last years winners were Sara and Jeremiah Madden from Matchless Stove and Chimney, who currently hold the Chamber Pot plaque. The Maddens, a husband-and-wife team, entered the race to compete for the award and represented their family business, which is owned by Jeremiah's father.""
