Other local businesses, restaurants, and shops will have tents, as well as music, face painting, and more - it’s for the whole family!

Meet at 6:00pm as usual for our run/walk, then head back to the tap room for a fundraiser for our club! We’ll have raffle tickets available ($1 each/$5 for 6 tix) for you to drop into various buckets for super sweet prizes! Stay tuned, as we’ll be featuring some of the prizes available in the next few weeks. Hope to see you and your Swifty support then! 

Join your fellow Swifters in marching in this year’s Skokie 4th of July Parade! We hope to have a large Swifter yellow contingent - family and friends invited! Stay tuned for more details.

Join us for a special edition SUNDAY scamper at the Skokie Farmer’s Market! We’ll meet at 7:30am on July 21st for a route that will start and finish at the market.
