For the past few years, various towns and sites have been home to Fayette County Wednesday Walks, an initiative for healthy lifestyles within the County.
This year, TTOC was asked to host a Walk in Connellsville! In March, a meeting was held in Uniontown to talk what tours will take place as well as ideas for new locations and types of tours.
In late June, Will and the RTOC crew attended the Friendship Hill Wednesday Walk to see what all happens at these events.
The two weeks before the Walk we started to compile ideas for routes and major talking points.
During the week of the Walk, TTOC members Will, Maggie, and Mandy got together to practice and review the spiels for the tour.
Wednesday July 20th finally arrived and locals and visitors were ready for their weekly Wednesday Walk - even though it was one of the hottest days of the year!
About 70-80 people participated this evening between the two tour groups. Highlights included a tour of community gardens along Third Street, the Pittsburgh and Crawford corner lot, Community Center, and the Great Allegheny Passage (its history and the projects we work with it).
Even with the heat, the tour/walk was a success!
