Something New

Walk the World – Over the past few years we have collectively walked the “American Discovery Trail” (6,800 Miles), and the Appalachian Trial (2,190 miles) join us for our largest endeavor YET; as we walk the Earth’s Circumference (24,901 Miles). This is a large undertaking but if we each do our part and record our steps or minutes of activity we should complete this in 2017! There will be raffles along the way for those who participate in the program and each completed sheet is an entry into the raffle. So grab a sheet and start recording!

Connect to Culture – As part of our walk the world activity for this year we will be having culture events & cultural learning activities so we can learn more about customs, foods, traditions, festivals, holidays and events from around the world.

New Member Picture – Bring your smile and we’ll snap a picture for our member board (all members are welcome) If you’re not on our member board, we want you to join us.
