Wanted: smallish group of adventurous, spontaneous, LIFE LOVER, smiley walkers who recognize summer is slipping away fast. Cleveland Botanical Gardens are usually a little wilted by this point in a hot dry summer. Not this year! They're lush and beautiful. Bring your camera and walking shoes. Meet in the lobby of the Garden at NOON.

If you are coming from the Akron area, you are welcome to carpool or follow in your car. Meet at Lonnie's at 11 AM, 814 Brunsdorph Rd Fairlawn 44333. My cell is[masked] if you need something.

We'll walk the gardens for a couple hours and then walk to the Barking Spider on the Case Western U campus a few blocks away for a free classical concert from 3 till 5. It is presented by students of the Cleveland Institute of Music. These young people, who will be professional musicians for the rest of their lives, do this the first Sunday of the month for 2 hours. I have heard world class performances.

At 5 we'll adjourn to Murray Hill (close by) for a patio or deck dinner at Trattoria or Guarinos. When we're full, well cross the street to Corbos or Prestis for a Canolli desert. Then well waddle around the galleries or nap. jk.

The beauty of this day and a tight schedule is you can pick us up if you have an early conflict or drop off if you need to leave. No worries mate.

    Sounds like a great Idea, count me in. I leave from the Hudson Area and meet you there, would 12Noon be ok. If any one from the Hudson/Stow area wants to drive with me, let me know. Barbara

    Wow! (good wow).. This is an awesome well thought out event. If I didn't have the "starving artist" syndrome and I would hop on this one in a heartbeat. Anyone who can go, should. Lonnie is right, the gardens must be spectacular with all the rain and cooler weather we have had this summer. The students play their hearts out and if you haven't experienced Little Italy yet, by all means make an effort to go!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
