4Q 2019 Meeting – December 10, 6:30 p.m.

Wow, it’s the end of the year already, so time for our year-ending quarterly meeting to review 2019 and look ahead to 2020! We’ll have our usual potluck spread in the downstairs Founders Room of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Raleigh on Wade Avenue as we have done in years past. (There is an attached warming kitchen if you need it.) We will have a chance to share our accomplishments for the past year and our goals for the year ahead! 2020 board will also be confirmed. Come wrap up the year with us!

Please bring your favorite dish to share! Unlike previous years, we won’t try to organize by first letter of last name as I think we kept assigning the same food types to the same people! NCRC will provide plates, napkins, flatware, cups and drinks!

Adopt-A-Highway (12/21/2019)

NCRC Adopt-A-HighwayWe’re talkin’ trash.  Pickin’ up trash, that is.  For almost 20 years, the North Carolina Roadrunners Club has been keeping clean the 1-mile stretch of Millbrook Road in Raleigh going from Shelley Lake to Creedmoor Road.  Come join other volunteers for a fun, social morning at the last Adopt-A-Highway for 2019!  It’s some of the easiest NCRC volunteer points you can earn!  Fashionable safety vests, bags, gloves, and post-pickup refreshments provided!  (NCDOT requires that volunteers must be at least 12 years old and that children 12-17 be supervised by an adult at least 21 years old.)

Next scheduled litter pick up:

It’s Christmas lights season again!  “Come run with us” for a 3-mile social run through Cameron Village and the surrounding neighborhoods at 6:30 p.m.  In conjunction with Capital RunWalk and the nOg Run Club, we’ll do an easy 3-mile route (run or walk), followed by a post-run dinner at Cameron Bar and Grill (non-sponsored) for those interested.  Raffle tickets supporting the nOg Run Club’s Wake County Holiday Cheer program will also be available.  All paces and faces are welcome  — bring a friend!

Holiday costumes very much encouraged!  Let your holiday spirit shine!  Also be considerate of the lighting available and wear reflective or lighted safety gear.

NCRC Halloween Social Run (10/24/2019, 6:00 p.m.)

Boo!  This isn’t a trick — it’s a treat of a new social run!  On Thursday, October 24, we’ll join with Runologie for a Halloween-themed social run to the “Halloween House” in Oakwood and back!  It’s about three spooky miles, and we’ll have some route maps, but if you want to add a few more miles, there are options!  Post-run, we’ll be right at State of Beer for anything scary going on!  Costumes are encouraged, but because of the setting sun, we have to require reflective/lighted gear as well for the safety of our runners!  Bring your cameras, bring your friends, bring your ID for State of Beer!  All paces are welcome!  Don’t get scared!  (Here’s the Facebook event.)
