    This event will be tailored to the casual runners, runners who would like to their times, and walkers who would like to enjoy some fresh air in the afternoon.

    There will be light refreshments at the finish area, and at 4 pm, everyone is invited to join us for our monthly Community Dinner. The menu will be hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, baked beans, potato chips, desserts, and beverages. Please bring a lawn chair!

    In case of rain, the dinner will be moved inside. The run/walk will be held rain or shine!

    Registration is in the front of the church on the day of the event.
    Registration opens at 2 pm and closes at 2:45 pm. The run/walk will start at 3 pm.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.
