November Meeting Highlights

Jingle Bell Run – December 10

In case you missed it – our Jingle Bell Run is this Sunday at 11! Registration opens at 10 at the Muskoseepi Pavilion. David’s Tea is sponsoring hot tea for the event, and we will have hot chocolate and baked goodies. If you’re interested in bringing baked goods for the event, drop them off to Muskoseepi Pavilion between 10 and 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Some FAQ’s: kids, kids in strollers, kids in sleds, dogs on leash all invited! This fun event is for everyone! This is a fun event, meaning no timing and no medals.

This is a free event, but please bring a cash donation for the food bank.

Prizes for best costume!
