Meeting Wednesday on Ideas... Encourage Walking. The Santa Fe Walks Task Force has asked us to help get the word out:

"The Santa Fe Walks Task Force, a committee made up of city, state, educators and healthcare professionals, is hosting its first public meeting Wednesday February 1 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. in the community room at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center, 3321 Rodeo Road. Refreshments will be served.

The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the health benefits of walking for persons of all ages, the benefits of walking to reduce pollution from vehicles, and to gather ideas to encourage more people to walk.

The task force was created last year as a result of the adoption of a resolution from the City Council. For more information on the meeting or how to get involved call Anne McLaughlin, Planning and Land Use Department Director, 955-6617.

The Friends of the Library are providing a complimentary pedometer to all who attend.
