Afternoon (Thursday) Belmont Walk

  • January 9, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 Many of our members are off from work along with members in the group who are either retired or out of work or maybe are able to take a day off from their busy work schedule.  If you’re available you’re welcome to join us. This will be about a 3 mile walk through the woods and around the lake. We'll meet in the first parking lot as you enter the park off of exit 38 of the Southern State Pkwy. I'll be there at 12:45pm to greet attending members. The walk will begin promptly at 1pm. Those who are late can catch up with the group by taking the path just east of the parking lot.


 

 

**Those who need to pay their yearly dues ($10) can do so at this event.

LifeTime (LT) memberships $40

    • Loren

      Hi Marybeth, I am sorry I cannot be on the walks when you are there especially being on Lee's 500th walk but I will be back soon. It was such a beautiful day for that walk as well. I am sorry you didn't go to Panera Bread but family always comes first.

    Where I grew up it was the Indy 500. I like the Lee 500 better! Congratulations to a jolly good fellow!

    • Loren

      Joan, I am definitely sure that Lee's 500th walk was much much better than the Indy 500. Thank you so much for treating me lunch, it was great and I highly appreciated it.

    • Joan N.

      The best part of the day was talking to you. The second best was I earned a 100% on a certification exam! You are my charm!

      1 · January 8, 2014

    • Loren

      The best part of my day is getting a few online cards, cards in the mail and phone calls from friends today and in the past. Steve took me for Sukura, Japanese food, Hibatchi style and it was great. Steve and I had a great day celebrating my special day and it was great hearing from you Joan, again. I am so happy I made your day too.

      1 · January 8, 2014

  • Loren

    With the cold temps today, Wednesday, and not good for anyone's health to be walking in these conditions, it was so great that Lee changed his walk to tomorrow, Thursday. It will be above freezing and a good day for a walk. I will be there in spirit on the walk but I will meet you all at Panera Bread for lunch. Today, Wednesday, I will be celebrating m birthday with Steve and trying to stay warm at the same time. See some of you on Thursday.
