Participants Enjoy a "Tuesday Morning Stroll"

Shown above are (L-R) Regenia Manns, Jessee Shumate, Jeannie Frisco, and Bill Mitchell.
On a brisk morning this past month, walkers gathered to enjoy a "Tuesday Morning Stroll" with the Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) and Activate Martinsville-Henry County. While on a 2.6 mile walk at the Fieldale Trail, the participants learned fun facts about Easter eggs and competed for prizes with trivia questions.

Try your hand at this one: The first Easter Egg egg roll was held at the White House by what U.S. President? Do you know? Jessee knew the answer, it was Rutherford B. Hayes!

Also while on the walk, the participants learned about the history of Koehler. Below they are shown looking at sand dredges from the historic Koehler Concrete Plant.

Tuesday Morning Strolls are held the 1st Tuesday of each month. Join us on May 5th, as we visit the Uptown Spur Trail on Franklin Street in Martinsville. We'll meet at 9 am at the Gazebo. For more information, contact 634-2545.
