October is here, amazingly, which means we have one month left of exploring downtown. Here's where we'll be going.
October 1: Guest walker Cris Doby, who is the Exalted Ruler of the Farmington Elks, will walk with us to Women's Park downtown near City Hall and give a brief talk on the Farmington Elks and how they serve our community. The Elks will be hosting a hot dog day at the Market Saturday.
October 8: We will walk to the Village Commons, where we will hear from guest speaker Diane Rothman, who is owner of the Sacred Sage in the Commons.
October 15: We will walkt to both to Heeney-Sundquist and Thayer Rock funeral homes in downtown Farmington. Our own historian, Suzanne Clinton, will give a brief history of both.
October 22: We will visit Farmington's historic Quaker Cemetery where Suzanne will give a brief history. Oh, and we are expecting a visit from a special guest who is a very haunting character.
October 29: We will reward all our walkers this season with certificates and other goodies. Then we will finish the season with a walkers' choice walk.
Thanks to all who took part this year. We hope to see you all next spring. And bring your friends!
Suzanne, Sandy and Polly
