5CR will be making an appearance at the 3rd annual running race at Putnam Park.
(We won’t be running). A short but fun event for us with musket demo before the start of the race. Then stand guard at entrance and exit of the park as the runners come through. Post-race refreshments and pose for photos with the crowd. Proceeds from the race benefits area charitable organizations including Friends of Putnam Park, and 5CR. A fun way to spend a few hours in the early morning!
