  • We are walking again this Saturday, April 11 at 9, from the folk school parking lot (550 Pine Street, Marine, 55047). We walk about an hour, keeping strict adherence to 6-foot separation and other guidelines. We schedule this walk with the support of our board member who is a retired public health executive, she understands the importance of safety and also of the importance of moving for our well being. Of course, if you are not feeling well or coughing, stay home! And if state and local public health guidelines change, we will also change our plans.
