Palouse will host 14th turkey leg run


November 15, 2018

The 14th annual Turkey Leg fun run at Palouse will be Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, at 7:45 a.m. All proceeds are used to fund new children’s books and activities for the Palouse Library.

The race will begin at the Roy Chatters Museum at 7:45 a.m. with donuts and hot drinks provided by Palouse McLeod’s Market, and Beverly and Greg Pearce. The run course is a one mile loop which goes past the park, across the river and turns back at the grain elevators. Run participants can decide on the number of mile loops they can make.

Donations are collected the morning of the race or they can be made at the Palouse Library. Over the past 14 years, the Turkey Leg run has raised more than $14,000 which was used to purchase hundreds of children’s books, fund summer reading activities and other activities.

For more information on the event, contact Beverly Pearce at the Palouse Library at (509) 878-1513.

The Palouse Library is open Tuesdays 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursdays 2 to 6 p.m. and Fridays 12 to 6 p.m.
