NCRC Snoopy’s Social Run – 2/23/2020

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!

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!
