TEMV Virtual Summer Walk 5.0

The TEMV Virtual Summer Walk is back for a fifth amazing year of promoting fun, health, community, getting outdoors, and physical fitness. This year’s theme is “TEMV Walks in Massachusetts” as we will be virtually walking though the state. Walk on your own wherever you want, however you want, and send Fay your weekly mileage. She’ll keep track of where we go and how far. The walk starts in July, so send an email to fay@temv.org to be added to the group. It should be a great summer to get out and walk! Runners and bikers are welcomed, too.

Thank You

We have just delivered 63 pounds of food for folks who are homebound (and their pets) to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank. Thank you to all who have contributed to this collection.

2018-19 Pledges Due
