Hello! Welcome to Weekday Events Leisure Walking group!
I started this group because I wanted to combine my love of movies, museums and walking into one meet up.
I also wanted a group where walking wasn't fast paced (no power/race walking) but more like an evening stroll with a friend; where conversation and enjoying the scenery was more important than how quick one could reach one's destination.
Who should join?
We welcome all active retirees and active individuals in their 50's and 60's who like to "walk and talk" while experiencing the wide and varied activities of the DMV area.
What do we do?
We visit museums to see exhibits and have post exhibit discussions.
We attend exhibition openings, art lectures and curators' gallery talks.
We see the latest movie or classic movie and have post movie discussions either at a restaurant, or, in nice weather, during a leisure walk.
We attend local events and festivals.
We take 30-45 minute leisure walks to different monuments and neighborhoods in the DC-MD-VA area.
And, most of all, we enjoy the company of others who like ourselves are Weekday Leisure Walkers!
Location/Schedule of meetups
Most of our meetups are currently located in DC and sometimes in Bethesda and Silver Spring, MD.
Our meetups are scheduled around the mid-day (11:15a.m. to 2:45p.m.) during the weekdays (Monday - Thursday).
Our Participation/RSVP policy:
We are only seeking members who intend to actively participate in our Meetups. Our requirement for membership is that you will attend at least 1 event each calendar quarter (thats 1 every 3 months ending on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 for a total of, at least, 4 events/year).
At the end of each quarter members who haven't participated in at least one activity for that quarter, will be removed from our membership list.
RSVPs are to be updated in a timely fashion. It is expected that the moment you decide not to attend an event that you previously RSVP'd for, you will make every effort to notify the event host and update your RSVP status ASAP.
Looking forward to meeting you and hoping that you will join us and become a Weekday Leisure Walker!
