Tree Walk in the Neighborhood
Take an hour’s stroll with some of your neighbors, enjoying sidewalk views of trees in the Sligo Woods neighborhood–in front yards as well as streetside. The outing begins at Tenbrook Drive & Robin Road (top of the “Kids Sledding Hill”). Leader Laura Mol, of Robin Road, says, “We’ll take a different route than last year, ‘though beginning at the same place.” Light spatters won’t get in the way but the walk will be cancelled in the event of serious rain; check the website for an announcement, if necessary.
Questions to < email@example.com >.
