|18th Annual In Step and In Shape Walk is May 22 at Shawnee Mission Park|
Celebrate summer and "Unleash the Power of Age" when the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District presents the 18th Annual In Step and In Shape Walk on May 22. This year's event will take place The Theatre in the Park in Shawnee Mission Park, which has a separate entrance at 7710 Renner Road, Shawnee.
Participants will enjoy a morning of walking on the scenic trails in Shawnee Mission Park followed by a picnic lunch, an opportunity to browse and visit with a number or vendors, and some fun activities. The special guest speaker for this year's event is internationally-recognized author and writer Ann Butenas, who will give an entertaining, inspirational, and downright humorous pontification of living a blessed, fulfilled, and rich life. Door prizes are also planned.
