“It was a lot of fun partnering with York Avenue Elementary School for Walk to School Day. Several hundred people who came out for an early morning stretch, face painting, sing-alongs and a tour of the new performing arts center before a brisk walk to school. It was a true partnership as the business community, local newspaper and local police department were all involved.”
