Anniversary Walk and Conga Line!!!

As we Cinga out of Ocean Grove tomorrow, we will be reciting this chant:

Walking on the Board walk!
We are very Hap-py!!!!

It has a perfect Conga beat!!

On June 8, we will celebrate the creation of 40+ Single Shore Walkers, six years ago !!! And we will honor Daryl, who has been the heart and soul of this group for several years and has created such warmth and so many friendships.

The first 3 - 5 minutes of our walk as we leave the Badge hut will be a Conga line !!!We will meet at the badge hut (the original site of the First Shorewalkers Walk), form a celebratory Conga line, and we will Conga right out of Ocean Grove, heading south. Daryl will lead the Conga line !!! It will be great. After a few Conga minutes, we can all spread out and walk as usual.
Thank you all for arriving 10 minutes early; we will leave on time.
