It will be a fun, social outing, but at the same time offering the mental and physical activity essential to a healthy brain. During the month of July we will meet on Wednesdays at 9:15 am at the entrance to Pistol Creek and will walk for about 1.2 miles.  This month, we will meet and discuss a specific book as we read it throughout the month.  Our July selection will be A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison.  Please contact the library to obtain a copy of the book.
