    Do You Know the Benefits of Walking?As the weather gets better let’s get outside and walk. It will be good to get together and get some exercise. Benefits from walking include quickening your heart beat, circulating more blood and oxygen to your muscles and your organs, including the brain. 

    Walks are planned for every Tuesday at 11:00 starting March 2, weather permitting. Meet at 203 Putnam Road, with parking in the driveway, on the road, or at the Y. We will walk 2-3 miles in the neighborhood with appropriate social distancing. Other locations can be planned for the future. If you are interested, email Kathy DeMarco.
