Our May 12th – Racquet Club Walk turned into a great event for the Midland Walkabout Club! The weather was wonderful, and we had new walkers who came and joined in with our AVA Sanctioned 6km/11km walk.
After the walk, several members kept the fun going and went to brunch!
WELCOME TO OUR NEW MEMBERS!
