SCHEDULE ADDITION – DECEMBER 5 GROUP WALK
Since we had several walks cancelled earlier this year because of COVID-19, we will be having a group walk in Birmingham on December 5, 2020, with lunch and a club meeting following the walk. Additional information on the walk will be sent out next month.
If you still want to walk our year-round-events on your own, please note that the starting point for Montevallo is now reopen. The walk box at City Hall located in the front lobby - 541 Main St, Montevallo, AL.
For the YREs in Athens, Birmingham, and Montgomery – the walk boxes are at hotels, which should be open. The YRE in Monroeville is at the Police Station, which should also be open. However, we suggest that you contact the start point location directly to determine the status, since it may change on a day-to-day basis, or you can contact the walk POC.
The Huntsville/Madison County Visitor Center has reopened with socially distanced modifications, so our walk box will be available to anyone wanting to do the walk.
We appreciate all of your support during this challenging time.
