Daffodil Valley Volkssport Walk
Looking for a way to get active and make friends along the way? This week join the Puyallup area walking club for a stroll in downtown Tacoma.
• Wed 1/11/17 at 9:15 am
• Wed 1/18/17 at 9:15 am
An excerpt from the club website below:
“Walks are designed to appeal to everyone in safe, stress-free environments. Walks are non-competitive, and participants walk at their pace. Many walks can be done with strollers. Everyone is Welcome! You do not need to be a member of DVVA or any volkssport club to enjoy our walks. We will meet at the Spar Coffee Bar, 2123 N 30th, Tacoma at 9:15 a.m. Register inside, then meet outside the store. We start at the Spar but head down to walk along Ruston Way. This walk is entirely along the Tacoma waterfront going to the newly developed Japanese Park and Pagoda then to the Point Ruston area passing parks and restaurants.”
High School Winter Sports
With the cold winter months in full swing, indoor winter sports are a great way for students to stay active and busy. Check out the different schools and teams and go out and support a student you know in the community. You can find the different sports, teams, and times here on the SPSL (South Puget Sound League) website.
It’s been cold and clear for the past week! The weather is expected to warm-up this week. We will be welcoming back the rain and clouds, back to our familiar and temperant weather. With the temperature rise, it’s time to get back outside again! Check out local parks and trails to stay active in the winter!
