Overland Park walking group for 50 plus begins Sept. 6
POSTED: 08/11/2011
Get to Know Overland Park is the name of the program. Participants will meet each week beginning at 1 p.m. for a walk, and end the program with a stop to a local establishment, where they'll learn about the history of the business and sometimes receive free samples or coupons. Ten Thousand Villages is the first business to be visited on Sept. 6. Other featured establishments include: Sept. 13, Wild Bird House; Sept. 20, Images Art Gallery; Sept. 27, Alive Nutrition; and Oct. 4, Green Light. Perform a catalog search for the keywords "walking group" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.

Get to Know Overland Park will meet each week in front of the Carriage House in Santa Fe Commons Park, 8045 Santa Fe Drive, Overland Park. The cost for five two-hour outings is $15 per person for Johnson County residents or $16 per person for nonresidents.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at
