A club tradition, dating back to its origins, are periodic social get togethers of club members and friends in the form of a potluck meal. These informal gatherings are sometimes held at a member's house or at a public meeting facility. There is always lots of food, as everyone is asked to bring something to share and the highlight is always the dessert spread at the end of the evening. Traditionally these events are held 3 to 4 times a year and often feature a guest speaker who talks about a running related topic. 

Over the years, we have had a number of well known speakers and to name just a few; Sarah Lavender-Smith, Ann Trason, Shirley Matson, Barbara Miller, Dean Karnazes, among many other notables in the running community. The Summer potluck in recent years has featured a trail run, to work up an appetite, followed by a brunch with the club providing drinks and side salads for all in attendance. These periodic potlucks usually average about 40-75 people with both LMJS members and guests included. 

Annual Membership Party

Annually, for over ten years, the club has honored members for their service in volunteering their time and effort by recognizing them and showing our appreciation at our annual membership celebration. As an all-volunteer organization, we rely on members and friends of the club to support our activities - from volunteering at races to serving on the Board of Directors.

Our annual membership event is traditionally held in late January/early February of each year. Check the event calendar for more details (usually announced in December) or look for the e-bulletin for details on upcoming events.
