Move and Munch
The weather is often cold and wet, but we are taking it in stride! Join us every other Friday at Washington Square as we get moving and walk the mall for exercise. Meet the group at the bottom of the food court stairs at 10am. We’ll be walking in groups of two or three and pairing up by how fast you like, or don’t like, to hoof it. Walkers will reconvene at 11am in the same place and, for those interested, will grab a bite to eat in the mall in groups. All ages and stages invited January 22, February 5, and 19. Don't forget your masks.
