Fun Run Information

Just a little information on the Fellowship Week - Fun Run event. The fun run has long been a staple of the Rotary Fellowship week. For those members that have learned that regular cardio exercise creates a clear head and a positive mental attitude, this is a great social venue to run with other members, plus enjoy the a brief continental breakfast together after the run.
