A wonderful time was had by all who attended the recent walk at Adelman's and Sebright's Gardens in Brooks. Over 290 participated in what many called their "absolute favorite walk." The Fitwalkers will host this wonderful volkswalk again next year, so mark your calendar for Saturday, May 30, 2015. You won't want to miss it!
