Christmas Eve Run and Gathering

CMS President Steve Laska has a few words . . .

OK,  So here's the scoop for Christmas Eve. We all get together for a run from Sterling Center (behind the fire station actually) to O'Connors in Worcester, at the West Boylston line on Rt. 12.

Many people ask how to do the car thing for this point-to-point run. Unless you want to double up and run both ways, the best bet is to get to O'Connors by 11:30 and carpool. So we start at Noon, hitting a nearby rail trail if it's clear of ice and snow for about a mile, and the rest of the way on Rt. 12, south, left onto Rt. 140 for a short distance, then right onto Worcester Street to O'Connors.

Delicious chowder, veggies, cheese, dips and crackers, gifts and prizes, and a cash bar make this one of the most fun events of the year. And if you're still just thinking about becoming a CMS member, come and see what the fun is all about. We'll have membership applications waiting for you at the party!
