    Do You Know the Benefits of Walking?As the weather gets better let’s lace up your athletic shoes, get outside and walk. It will feel good to socialize and get some exercise at the same time. Proven benefits from walking include quickening your heart beat and circulating more blood and oxygen to your muscles and your organs, including the brain. Let's get going!

    Walks are planned for every Tuesday at 10:00, weather permitting. We will walk 2-3 miles in the neighborhood with appropriate social distancing. If you are interested and want more information, email Kathy DeMarco.
