    Hi Miles,

    So nice to see your posts. I have signed up for the spring walks on Fridays through the TDSB. If memory serves me correctly, there is usually an email regarding where each walk will be. I haven’t seen a schedule yet and wondering if I missed it somehow.

    Looking forward to our walks, Marilyn
