Updated 03-25-07 Rochester Walks!!!  Another walking group to be formed.  "I am interested in heading up a walking group during the day-time. I am thinking that Thursdays work best for me, either at 9:30am or 12noon."  Please let me know if you have any interest in one of these time frames and I would be happy to walk with "new walking friends".  Rachel Palmer, Rochester Library Volunteer.  (360) 273-6579 or (360) 388-8085.
