First Friday Walk

The next First Friday Walk is scheduled for February 2. Ice and snow cancel. 

Dave and Judy are continuing the First Friday Walk with walks planned for January 5, February 2, and March 2. If ODU is open and it is not icy, that is 10 AM temperature forecast to be above 40F, we will gather at 10 AM to walk the Cape Henry Shores neighborhood streets. The area is well sheltered resulting in a pleasant walking experience on sunny winter days. Join us. Dogs, bring them if you have them.
