Six walkers were able to miss the Monday morning monsoon and do 8.60 K. We walked
Wilkinson road to the highway, passed by a tepee, and explored around an interesting acre
property by invitation of Dianne. We noticed many young animals as we went by the farms.
We did not walk the quarry as planned as it would have been quite muddy. Next Monday
July 1st. is Canada Day and some of the walkers will be in the Canada Day Parade. If anyone
would like to do the usual walk, meet at the Legion at 9:30 am.   V.M.
