|In Step and In Shape Walk is June 13 at Shawnee Mission Park|
"It will be a fun morning to get out of the house, meet new friends, and enjoy a beautiful day in nature," said 50 Plus Special Events and Travel Specialist Kari Baesel. "Participants will also get the chance to learn more about local businesses that support seniors."
Walk participants will check in at 9 a.m. at the event’s new location at The Pavilion at The Theatre in the Park and then enjoy a morning of walking scenic trails in Shawnee Mission Park. Afterwards, there will be a picnic lunch with KMBC News Anchor Larry Moore as the special guest speaker. Door prizes, vendors, and fun activities are also planned.
"The Pavilion is the perfect setting for a summertime picnic lunch," Baesel added. "It’s a beautiful structure and it provides plenty of space and shade.”
The facility, which opened in 2010, covers approximately 6,000 square feet and seats up to 225 guests. In addition to being used for a number of JCPRD special events, it also is available to rent for weddings, family reunions, corporate dinners and other activities.
The cost for the four-hour In Step and In Shape event is $12 per person, which includes lunch. Preregistration is required and can be accomplished by calling (913) 831-3359.
The Theatre in the Park is located north of the main entrance to Shawnee Mission Park at 7710 Renner Road in Shawnee.
