The Second Annual Woodinville Turkey Trot is just around the corner and you don't want to miss it.  With over 400 runners last year, this race is quickly becoming a holiday tradition in Woodinville.  This fun, flat, fast course is great for the whole family.  This year's event will feature a "free" kids dash before the 5k begins. 
New this year, the kids and those in costume will join the Woodinville HS Drum Line in a "micro" Thanksgiving Day Parade, leading the kids to the start line.  Sponsorship slots are still available with 100% of the proceeds going to the Woodinville HS Wrestling Boosters.
This year's event will have something for everyone, so grab your family/friends and head to Wilmot Gateway Park in your finest Thanksgiving Day Attire on November 22nd.  Parade starts promptly at 8:50am.

Washington at War: The Evergreen State in World War I
One-hundred years ago in 1917, the US entered The Great War to fight alongside our European allies. But Washington’s homefront experience began long before the country entered the war, and continued afterward.
Led by historian Lorraine McConaghy, the program begins with an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes before offering a “Readers’ Theater”: a script that is read aloud together, allowing participants to speak the history they are discovering. The script includes excerpts from newspapers, diaries, writings, speeches, and correspondence, and is based on extensive research in primary source material focused on the war’s impact on Washington—and how Washington impacted the war.
This talk is presented by Humanities Washington and the Washington State Historical Society in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I.
