Supporting the Healing Garden’s Walk/Ride/Thrive event, Sunday October 1st. As a way of reciprocating to the Healing Garden for the use of their space, WBN is organizing a walkers team. Here’s a way to donate, join the walkers, or other.
So, join the team or support a WBN colleague: go to www.healinggarden.dojiggy.com, select register from the menu on the left navigation bar. From there, select “join a team” and follow prompts. Women’s Business Network Walkers is listed in the drop down menu.
We’ve been helping find volunteers and Joan will be helping with registration and have the fun job of driving the “Guests of Honor” (96 year old founder Bill Thurston and co-founder and longtime director, Betsy Tyson Smith, in my convertible. 😊 The day’s events, including the walk are “kid-friendly” with celebrations beginning at noon and leashed dogs welcome.
Kid-friendly fare: drumming, face painting & pumpkin painting. Many of you mentioned at last week’s meeting that you plan to walk or ride, but PLEASE SIGN UP! Can’t walk? Help with parking, registration or (especially needed: The Water Stops in Lancaster or Littleton). Supplies provided. Register directly or contact Joan Finger or Leigh Carpenter firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Because there’s a long bike ride beginning at 8am, a short ride beginning at 10am, and the walkers beginning at noon, there are different shifts for registration, parking etc etc to sync with the riders/walkers. There’s a ‘wrap up party’ for all at the end of the day. WBN may once again field a team of walkers and/or riders. More info about a TEAM (or TEAMS) via e-blast announcements.
If you’d like to volunteer, email Leigh Carpenter email@example.com (the new development director at the Healing Garden) and cc firstname.lastname@example.org; OR call Leigh at (978)456.3532 ext 105.
