Bates (BACA) Walking club to start


At the last meeting of the Bates Area Civic Association, Inc., the Program Committee introduced the idea of forming a Walking Club in the neighborhood. As stated by Program Committee Chairperson Geovani Bonilla, the club will provide an interesting opportunity for residents to get to know one another, to get some exercise, as well as to learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of our community while on these walks.

At this point, we would like to have a critical mass of 10 persons to begin this program. So, if you’re interested please contact Geovani at the telephone number and/or email address below to sign up. Whatever your personal decision, please know that I have contacted Geovani to express my desire to join the club and I pray that we can get a minimum of nine others to do likewise.
