The Community Walking Club meets at the Harrisville branch of the Alcona County Library at 8:30 a.m. every Thursday for a one or two mile walk around town, followed by coffee and snacks. Everyone is invited to walk with the group (check with your health care professional to be sure you can walk 20 to 40 minutes on pavement). Fitness with friends is fun! No one walks alone; there are groups of slow, medium and speedy walkers. The Community Walking Club meets every Thursday the Library is open, all year around. It’s springtime in northern Michigan and that might mean rain (or snow) – we walk in any kind of weather except thunderstorms and ice storms. So bring umbrellas and raincoats, if necessary! For more information, call 989-724-6796.
Special Event: Fresh Fruit Frenzy following the June 8 walk. (That means that we celebrate the end of the walk with lots of fruit!)
