Meeting Features

The Orange Runners Club Monthly Meeting

November 7th, 2018

This month the club meeting will be held in conjunction with the Classic 10K committee and its annual Classic Community Recognition Celebration.

This recognition and dinner honors the sponsors, volunteers, and community members who have supported the Classic 10K road race, and to personally give thanks to those who have extended so much for the community in bringing this significant event to the local area for all to enjoy and benefit from, and in addition to donate money to the local community for needs in our own 'backyard'.

To support the larger event the normal meeting location at the Olde Erie will not be used and instead we will be meeting at Kuhl's Highland House at 512 Highland Avenue Ext. Middletown, NY. Please see below for additional details.

In addition to a brief discussion by ORC President Valerie Kilcoin, there will also be recognition awards and donations to local groups and brief orations by notable local personalities and a running legend.

Guest speaker, Rod Dixon.
