Jan16_ ERCdinner2015_002The annual appreciation party is about awarding members for their participation in our races by running or volunteering. It is an evening we can enjoy, eating great food catered by Tagliaferri’s Deli, being amazed by how well we runners “clean up”. We get to wear something besides sweaty shorts and t-shirts. The women actually get to let their hair down and put on a little makeup, dress up and show the world we can be pretty and feminine too. The men get to wear pants and nice clean shirts showing that they too can look pretty darn good.!

Jan16_ ERCdinner2015_008It is a time for the non-running spouses to meet the other non-running spouses. You can get together and commiserate with each other on what you go through while supporting your crazy running spouse. Believe me, you are appreciated.!

The other great thing about this party is the silent auction, there are always great items to bid on. There are great wines, tasty fudge by our very own Chocolate Man, food items, apparel and so much more.!

I always enjoy the entertainment section and the award ceremony where we recognize so many of our members for their dedication and hard work. !

It is a great evening for socializing, telling war stories, getting to know new members and just relaxing with great food and good company. !

I hope to see you there!
