On Thursday, November 24, 2016, the Unofficial Fillmore County Running Club will be hosting the 8th annual Fillmore County Turkey Day Run.
This run/walk event starts at 8:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day morning, with registration starting at 7:30 a.m.
The event is free to participants, but a donation to the Fillmore County Food Shelf will be collected from those who would like to contribute. The 2014 event collected over 95 pounds of food for the local organization located in Preston.
This is not a sanctioned race. It is a fun run/walk starting in Lanesboro near Riverside on the Root and finishing at the Trail Head Inn in Preston. And, the end of the 10.3 mile run/walk is always a surprise for the first person to find the finish line.
We usually average 40 to 65 participants, and long-sleeved shirts will be for sale online prior to the event if you visithttp://fillmorecountyjournal.com/submitturkeydayrun.php.
If you’d like to burn some calories before you consume some calories, this is a perfect event to kick-off your Turkey Day!
I am excited to announce that the chamber will once again be putting on the Holiday Lighting Contest for 2017. This has turned in to quite the fun contest with a great ending! I have attached the flyer for you all to view. We ask that all lights be up by December 1st and a photo sent in to me so that I know you are participating. We will then have the buckets open at Preston Foods where you can purchase food to donate to the food drive. 1 vote per food item. The business with the most votes will get the privilege of showing off the traveling trophy for the entire year as well as get your name added to the trophy. After the contest is completed on January 1st we will weigh and donate all of the food to the Preston Food Shelf.
