Fall/Winter Rambles for Seniors and other Free Spirits

$5

with Sam Horine

Calendar Jan 14, 2020 at 4:30 pm

Walking is a good exercise; it promotes good conversations with fellow walkers and the opportunity to observe one's surroundings. So, for those with some free time, I'm organizing a couple of “rambles” a month - starting in September and ending in March. Most 'rambles' will be in rural areas with a few in urban settings. All will be within a 40 miles radius of Skowhegan. While most 'rambles' will take place in the afternoon, some will start earlier in the day. At times, we may want to carpool to a starting point. Good walking shoes, warm comfortable clothing, in winter - snowshoes and or ice creepers, and the yen to explore are the only essential elements needed.

First Meeting will be held at SAHS at 4:30pm on October 8, 2019

Every second and fourth of each Month
