The 2020 Thanksgiving Day Sugar Creek Trail Pie Run has been changed from in person to virtual due to the new guidelines from the Governor that states we can’t have over 50 people in a gathering even with it being outdoors.

Please join in on the fun of running the Pie Run virtually, either 5K or the 2 mile. Post pictures of your run with the hash tag #PieRun2020 and then you will be entered into a drawing for a cash prize of $50.

SIGN UP BY: November 27, 2020

After December 13th you can pick up your shirt from the front desk at the Parks and Recreation.

The Crawfordsville Park and Recreation Dept. staff and board members would like to thank the various businesses, organizations, and individuals who support our programs and projects throughout the year. If you volunteered to coach a softball team, or the like, we appreciate the many hours you gave to provide a positive athletic experience for the children.

Maybe you or your group volunteered to plant flowers, pick up litter, or paint benches, we appreciate your hard work. Maybe your business donated financial support or door prizes for one of our many special events, such as the Pie Run on the Sugar Creek Trail, or the Fourth of July Fireworks; we thank you.

Thank you to the Montgomery County Community Foundation for gifts that have provided educational & social opportunities, as well as match money for Sunshine Van vehicles.

Finally, thank you to Montgomery United Fund, which provides a portion of the operational budget for the Sunshine Van Program. You each deserve an A+ in citizenship!
