Check back for times and details, to be posted closer to the event date

Save the date for two great combined events! RUN WITH ROTARY 5k Run and 1-mile Ramble event AND Montgomery EARTH DAY FAIR , both to be held on May 3, 2020 in Skillman Park (between Burnt Hill Road and Route 601).

Get those sneakers on and get ready for a fun day.  In past years, the race has attracted 900 runners and walkers and is a sanctioned Grand Prix event by the USA Track and Field organization. Return for a great family tradition or start a new one of your own. Run as an individual or with the whole family.

Run With Rotary is the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary Club’s main fundraising event. All proceeds benefit local and international charities. One of this year’s goals is to complete the purchase of a new mobile soup kitchen and disaster unit for Samaritan Homeless Interim Program.

The morning Run With Rotary event will include music, kid-care for ages 4-8, Penn Medicine Princeton Health activities, MHS Drum Corps, Dance Factory performance, massage tables, Zumba class, 50/50 Raffle, kid’s activities, drone demos, and more.  For details and online registration visit www.RunWithRotary.org

sponsored by the Montgomery Environmental Commission will run concurrent to and after the Run. Join us for many fun family activities while learning more about protecting our community and environment, while having fun!

There will be green exhibitors, entertainment, food trucks, environmental education booths, kids activities, and lots more to explore.  Of course, also included, will be our annual shredding and recycling and donation drop-off event.

The ability to drive-up  to drop-off materials for recycling will be available 12 noon to 3 PM only, due to the concurrent Run with Rotary event. BUT starting at 9 AM until 3 PM materials other than metals, electronics, and paper can be walked-in from where you park and dropped off at the designated areas.  ALL materials for recycling can be driven-in from 12 noon to 3 PM.  The trucks collecting metals, electronics, and paper will not be available before 12 noon.
