Golden Gate Park Clean Up!
It’s time to give back to Golden Gate Park, the urban oasis that we love!
A DSE Runners Habitat Restoration Party is scheduled for Saturday September 14, from 9:00am-12:00pm at Murphy’s Windmill on MLK Jr. Drive in GG Park (near 48th Ave & Lincoln Way). Equipment and snacks will be provided. All are welcome to join the party!

Bonus – If you’re short of the three volunteer points needed to receive an invitation to the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Picnic, attending this GG Park cleanup will automatically get you in regardless of how many points you currently have! Just notify us (info@dserunners.com) by September 1 that you’ll be participating and then be sure to show up.


General Membership Meeting
On September 15 after the Spreckel’s Lake 5K and Kid’s Run, there will be meeting to discuss upcoming events, open issues and any other club related items that come to mind. If you ever wanted to learn more about how DSE ticks and contribute to the discussion, you won’t want to miss this. The meeting should last about an hour.


Volunteer Appreciation Picnic
For our annual Volunteer Appreciation Picnic, DSE is going back to the 1960′s again to celebrate the 50th anniversary year of Woodstock. So break out your tie-dye, beads, flower head bands and start cranking up some Jefferson Airplane, Crosby Stills & Nash, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Santana and all those other groovy bands to get in the mood.

Date is Sunday, September 29. Invitation required.

☮ Remember, at least three volunteer points are needed to receive an invite to the picnic. If you don’t have enough volunteer points, there are still a few more races left to volunteer and collect those points. Information to volunteer can be found on the Volunteer Opportunities page, and if you want to check your current number of points, follow this link.
