Sign up now for the Savage 7K Run and 1 Mile Historic Walk on Sept. 22. The run starts at the Carroll Baldwin Hall and goes past the Mill through the Savage park and neighborhoods. The walk is a guided tour through Historic Savage. There will be music and treats afterwards.

The proceeds from this event go to help support renovations at the hall. Last year's money helped complete the lower level renovations and this year they hope to raise enough money to support new steps, ramps and railings for the exterior.
