There are two outdoor fundraisers this Saturday, March 17, 2018.
The Knights of Columbus will sponsor the 38th St. Patrick’s Day 5K race at the historic oil drilling town of Mentryville in Newhall, near Stevenson Ranch. The race is an “out and back” course that begins at Mentryville Park and takes you in front of Charles Mentry’s13-room mansion, a one-room school house, and a period barn. The course is mostly on newly paved asphalt and the elevation climb is about 330 feet. Due to the elevation gain, the course is considered moderate to difficult.
The Knights of Columbus Council #6016 of Newhall is a local non-profit organization, and the race is a community and family event.
Race day registration starts at 8:00 a.m. and the 5K run begins at 9:00 a.m. Awards and raffle prizes will follow shortly after 10:00 a.m.
For more information, call or email Tony Cota: 661-259-8346; Cotar4@sbcglobal.net.
