July News – so far (July has just started!)

A word from Butch Spaulding about our July 19th activity: Just a reminder that time is closing in on the date to make reservations for our July Activity – Picnic and Storm Chasers Ball Game. The cost for members is $19.00 and for non-members $24.00.

The original notification stated to let us know by July 11th – However, we need to finalize the number on July 11th so please notify me by 10 July – Payment should be in the mail at that time. So far there are 23 planning on attending this activity.

The picnic will be held even if it is raining. They have enough covered areas to handle this situation.


 

Wondering what to do after our September 6th Wine Walk in Fort Calhoun? The Washington County Historical Museum and Frahm House are available to tour, beginning at 12 p.m., for only $3! See http://www.wchamuseum.com/ for more information on this fascinating little museum and historic house. Another great place to visit is Super Bee Orchards, on the south side of the town, on the west side of Highway 75. They take cash or check only, so be sure to bring enough cash to visit the museum and treat yourself to a healthy apple snack on the way back home.


 

It is with great sadness that we say farewell to the Walk Seward Club. The Trailblazers will be picking up the Aurora YRE for the remainder of the year, while the Lincoln Volkssport Club will be picking up the York and Seward YREs. The Aurora walk features new 5K and 10K routes for this year and the Seward walk uses an “I Spy” theme to keep walkers on the lookout for landmarks and secrets. Without walkers, these YREs will close permanently at the end of the year. Don’t let that happen! Lace up the shoes, gas up the car, grab a friend and go!


 

We just got a report from “Bethany” Bob Kruger that another great club, the Wichita Skywalkers Volkssport Club, decided to dissolve on June 30. The YRE at Tallgrass Prairie near Strong City will be taken over by the Kansas Jaywalkers of Ft. Leavenworth. All other walks (Wichita, Arkansas City, Derby) are done!
