    The buffet dinner is free to all current members, though optional donations will be accepted to defray catering expenses (suggested amount of $10 for adults and $5 for children, accepted in advance or at the door). The cost for non-members is $10.

    *Because the event is being catered, we ask that you RSVP if you are planning to attend. Please RSVP to president@secondwindrunningclub.org by Friday, January 31, and let us know how many are coming (specify number of non-members, if any), and if anyone in your party needs a vegetarian meal.*
