WALKING GROUP


Our walks start at 9:30 a.m. from March through October and at 10:00 a.m. from November through February.The Walking Group meets twice a month, on the 2nd  and  4th Wednesdays in the morning. In the fall and late spring we usually try to plan walks out of the city. In recent years we have gone as far afield as Grand Beach, Victoria Beach, Winnipeg Beach, Gimli, Pinawa, Carmen, Bird’s Hill, St. Lupicin, and Ardyth McMaster’s property at Rossendale. These are what we call all-day walks—either we pack a picnic lunch or eat in a local restaurant.

During the winter months, we explore trails within or close to the city, beginning at 10:00 am and ending around 11:30 am.  Often we enjoy coffee in interesting little cafes such as the Neighborhood Bookstore and Café on Westminster Avenue.  Since many of our members also belong to one or more of the UWC Book Clubs, we often enjoy literary discussions as we walk.  We have even been referred to as ‘The Walking Book Club”!

There are about ten members.  Our walks are not strenuous, and we welcome anyone who enjoys walking, stimulating conversation and good cheer (we share lots of laughs)!

Co-conveners of the group are Barbara Sparling and Margaret Owen, and members take turns planning the walks.

All members are welcome to join. For more information call Janice.

Ahhhh I don’t think Woody-Mhitik’s eligible for a UWC Membership. Could we adopt him? Photo taken by Sandy Millen on Jan.13 in the Bois-des-esprits in St. Vital.
