September is here and that means festival season! This year is even more special than ever: it’s our 25th anniversary for the Cooper-Young Festival Friday 4-Miler, and we are beyond excited to celebrate.

This month’s community meeting (Tuesday, September 13th) will focus on getting all of our great volunteers ready for these exciting events. Come join us at 2298 Young starting at 6 p.m. to pick up volunteer shirts and find out how you can help out. We’ll have snacks and plenty of social time plus we’ll be here to answer all your questions about the race. We’ll show a few short training videos beginning at 7 p.m. and keep the doors open until 7:30.

If you’ve signed up to volunteer with us, this will be a great time to get ready before the day of the event. If you’d like to volunteer and haven’t signed up yet, you can check out the CYCA Facebook page for a link to our online sign up, call into the office at 901-272-2922,, or stop by our office.

As always, we hope to see you there. — Kristen Schebler
