Wake Forest, NC Calendar of Events - November 24 - 30, 2008

Real Estate Broker/Owner with RED Properties NC #129285

Well, this is it!  This is Thanksgiving week and with all of the families and friends gathering the events in Wake Forest this week are minimal.  Doesn't mean they are non-existent though! 

Be sure to check out the Gobbler's Run on Thanksgiving Day!  It sure beats laying around on the couch feeling overly stuffed! (No pun intended. Well, maybe a little!)

From the Town of Wake Forest website:

Firing Range Training
Wednesday, November 26; 2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Police Department Firing Range, behind Flaherty Park Community Center
Residents in the area are advised that the Wake Forest Police Department will conduct firing range training on Wednesday, November 26 from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the police department firing range, located behind the Flaherty Park Community Center. The firing range is utilized by Wake Forest Police officers who require instruction and practice in order to obtain current certification in the use of firearms. This certification is required in order for the officer to fulfill his duties for the Wake Forest Police Department. For more information, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/residents/police_firingrange.aspx.

3rd Annual Gobbler's Run 5K
Thursday, November 27; 8:00 a.m.
Downtown Wake Forest
Chiropractic Partners is sponsoring the 3rd Annual GOBBLER'S RUN 5K Family Event on November 27, 2008 at 8:00am. Registration is only $12 per person (kids 5 and under are free) and all proceeds benefit the Wake Forest Boys & Girls Club. Last year's race attracted over 700 participants and we expect an even larger crowd this year. The 3.1 mile loop is an easy stroll through downtown and historic Wake Forest. The course is open to runners and walkers of all skill levels. Push your kids or bring your dog - strollers and pets are encouraged to attend! You'll get a race t-shirt and be able to eat one more helping of stuffing without the guilt! You can register online at www.gobblersrun.com or for more information email Cat Redd at gobblersrun@hotmail.com.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and be thankful for all of your blessings! I have much to be thankful for in My Back Yard....

Now that Gobbler's Run sounds like a fun thing to do to get out of the house but, shouldn't they call it Gobbler's Roll instead?

Pretty funny, Don!  Yes, it does sound like a good idea though to get people out of the house and ACTIVE!

Leesa, a day at the firing range would be a help if you're planning to shoot a wild turkey!  They actually have a lot of them in some parts of Northern Virginia.

Morning Lesa,

Are you going to partake in either of these events? Just getting outside in the fall weather is treat enough regardless of what your planned activities are.

Hi Leesa!  Great time to join in on the Gobblers' Run and get rid of some of that pre-holiday weight so that we can EAT, EAT, EAT!  You'll have to snap some shots of these events and share with us later.

I hope they run before they eat Leesa.  It might not be pretty otherwise, LOL!

Pat - I have seen a bunch of wild turkeys before - I forget the name of the bar........

Terry - I am surprised that Craig Barrett hasn't commented on this post - he is an avid runner - even if it were on Thanksgiving Day!

Debe = The run is a great change of pace from food and football!  I have got a crazy Thanksgiving Day right now - now sure STILL where we will be or what we are doing.

Paddy -- Eewww......
