The McKnight Women's Club organizes community activities, sponsors summer recreational programs for our children, and works with the McKnight Village Civic Association in neighborhood improvements. The objective of this organization is to promote social and philanthropic work in the community.
Please note that although we meet at a United Methodist Church, the McKnight Women's Club is not associated with any particular church. We do however consider ourselves a non-denominational Christian womens group, and we begin each meeting with a prayer. We are over 100 women who work together to help improve the local community and together we are a force greater than our individual parts.
In light of the present health situation, most of the events mentioned in the March newsletter will be impacted. We will post updates as they come available.

A FAMILY FRIENDLY
5k FUN RUN / WALK EVENT
Benefiting Playground repairs and improvements at the McKnight Village Rec
We are excited for the 2020 Run for the Rec, an event that has become quite the talk of the town in Ross Township over the last several years.
2020 will be our 8th Run for the Rec and we hope it will be bigger and better than ever. We would greatly appreciate YOUR involvement as a participant, sponsor or volunteer. Registration will be open in March, so please check back then.
If you are interested in sponsoring the event, please email your contact information to Debbie Sucha and she will reach out to discuss with you how a sponsorship can help you achieve BOTH your advertising goals and your goals of making a positive impact on the community.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email Michela Barabarino and she will be happy to find a role that suits you.
This year's race features medals for males and females in 7 separate age categories. Additionally runners, walkers, and spectators, will be treated to snacks, beverages, ice cream, face painting and a live performance by our favorite local band, Time Tested. It is a carnival atmosphere and we hope to see you there!
As the Run for the Rec committee continues planning the 8th Annual Run for the Rec, to be held on Sunday, June 7, 2020, we would like to acknowledge these local business sponsors who have already signed on to support our 2020 event. Please patronize these businesses whenever possible and let them know we appreciate their support.
