On Dasher! On Dancer! On Slogger! On Limpin'! PRC's annual run through the glittering lights of Peacock Lane always draws a crowd. Meet at our Grand Avenue store by 6 p.m. on Dec. 15. A four-mile run/walk takes us through Peacock Lane's legendary holiday decorations on opening night. Mingle back at the store over hot drinks and cookies. Dress brightly and festively and warm up your chops for a few carols. All people are welcome, including those in sleighs (strollers). Please leave the reindeer (dogs) at home. This event is free.

At this year's Peacock Lane Run we'l be collecting winter coats and blankets for the men working at Blanchet House. Blanchet House's mission is to feed, clothe, shelter, and aid those in need. The men working at Blanchet House are in various stages of recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Please bring any surplus men's coats and blankets to our store on Dec. 15. We'll collect them before the run and deliver them to Blanchet House.
