    The walk was great but there should have been people giving information and maps at the front gate.

    There are supposed to be thunderstorms tomorrow... scattered... but some possibly severe.

    Are we still walking? I'll have my little ones with me so I'm a little concerned.

      The walk is still on. The current forecast says there is a 50% chance of storms in the morning. So fingers crossed that they hold off til the afternoon. Use your best judgement and stay safe!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
