Recently I was perusing Facebook, as I usually do when I get a little downtime, and came across an interesting, yet disheartening, post that someone is going around and stealing the Infants Remembered In Silence (IRIS) signs promoting their upcoming eighth annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.

This year's eighth annual IRIS Turkey Trot will be Thanksgiving morning, November 24, at the Faribault Middle School regardless of the weather conditions. Believe me, I live nearby and this is true, I think they've even held it when it was snowing or had just snowed. There are a variety of running and walking events for the young and old alike, including a 5K Walk, 5K Run, 10K Run, Tot Trot and Gobble Wobble. If you'd like to take part and you'd like to add a nice Turkey Trot long-sleeved t-shirt to your wardrobe, make sure you register online by November 7.

Hopefully these signs will turn up in someone's front yard as part of some prank so that they can be returned to IRIS to be redistributed. If you see these signs lying around somewhere, or you would like to help promote this fun family event, please call the IRIS office at (507) 334-4748.
