    Hi! This is Mary - the "no show". I had no idea who I was meeting. I did see you but wasn't sure you were the group. Wish I would have approached you but I'm a bit shy. I did walk & it was a wonderful day. I did walk with a young man and his friend. Next time we'll have to have a sign of some sort to recognize each other. I do look forward to meeting all of you at your next event.

    Hi! Here is a map of the route and where Ruth Hardy Park is located:

    Everyone should "check in" as soon as they arrive. Let's plan to meet under a shady tree in front of the restrooms between 9:00 - 9:15 am, since the walk starts at 9:30 am. Here is a photo of the restrooms!

    Are you using 'FRIENDS ASKING FRIENDS' to collect donations?

      Hi Mary - WELCOME - so glad you'll be joining us!!! Honestly, I don't know what FRIENDS ASKING FRIENDS is... What we've been doing is sending out emails with a "link" to our page. So, you could send out an email with this link to your personal page: http://www.desertaids...­

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
