Carver Fun Run
Plans are already taking place and the Carver Fun Run Committee is getting everything ready for the Annual Fun Run for Juvenile Diabetes. The Dog House and Harvey’s Bar and Grill will be sponsoring the Annual Carver Fun Run. It is scheduled for May 5th. Permission was asked to close several streets within the City of Carver for the event. The council adopted a resolution granting permission to close several streets from 9 AM until noon.
The event will once again feature food, refreshments, prizes, 50/50’s, raffles and much more! This event supports the American Diabetes Association’s Camp Needlepoint and the Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
