Tuesday Morning Strolls Kicks Off Third Season

Below freezing temps didn't dampen the spirits for the kick off of the 2010 season of Tuesday Morning Strolls. We simply moved the walk indoors to Liberty Fair Mall! Thanks to our new partners at Martinvsille Parks & Recreation, Tuesday Morning Strolls has a new inclement weather hotline to alert participants of cancelations and location changes due to weather. More than a dozen participants came out register for the program and walk. Jeannie Frisco of Activate (shown at left in green)  spoke to the participants about the importance of walking for health before we embarked upon a one mile walk (five laps around the mall). Throughout the walk, participants answered trivia questions about health & nutrition and some even won prizes.

Tuesday Morning Strolls is a partnership between the Dan River Basin Association, Henry County Parks & Recreation, Martinsville Parks & Recreation and Activate M-HC.

The next Tuesday Morning Stroll will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 19th at Wilson Park. The group will meet at 9 a..m. Contact Regenia Manns for more information on the walk at 276-634-2591.
