|50 Plus plans Saturday Walk & Shop event to Kansas City's River Market on Aug. 11|
The program is called Saturday Walk and Shop and will take place on Aug. 11. Participants will depart from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and travel downtown to the River Market, where they will visit the farmers, sample their goods, make a few purchases, and stroll around to see the sights. In case of inclement weather, the rain date is the following week. This walk is expected to require an easy level of exertion. The cost for one four -hour outing, including transportation to the walk site, is $16 per person for Johnson County residents or $18 for nonresidents. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “weekend walks.”
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 www.jcprd.com
