How rare is a February 29th on a Saturday? Well, we don’t know either, but it’s rare enough to justify having a special 4-mile social run (or walk) to mark the occasion! (4 years, 4 miles — get it?) We’ll park at the State Farmers’ Market just behind the restaurant at 8:00 a.m. and enjoy a 4-mile loop around Centennial Campus to get the day started. For those interested, the restaurant should just be re-opening after their renovation, perfect for a post-run meal! (I can vouch for the biscuits.) It’s nothing but an excuse to get together and have a great morning run and get 2020’s extra day off to a great start! See you again in four years! Facebook event link.
Hot dog — it’s that time again! Next Sunday, we’ll be doing our ninth Snoopy’s Social Run to raise money for SPCA of Wake County! It’s a five-mile social run from Snoopy’s at Meredith College to Snoopy’s downtown to Snoopy’s on Wake Forest Road, with a complimentary hot dog at each stop! It’s a great opportunity to get some miles in with old and new friends, socialize, and have your picture made with a guy in a hot dog suit! Your $10 donation goes to SPCA of Wake County, Mr. Snoopy’s favorite charity, and is to thank Mr. Snoopy and his staff for all the great food! He usually brings door prizes to the finish, so stick around to see what you win! “Come run with us” and meet Mr. Snoopy! Costumes encouraged! Registration is open now!
Come join us the end of January for our annual Volunteer Appreciation and Member Celebration Night! This wonderful dinner event thanks our great volunteers and celebrates the past year for NCRC! This event will be Saturday, January 25 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the AIA North Carolina Center for Architecture & Design (same site as last year). Watch for more details in your e-mail and on our Facebook page!
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!
