Canal Walk 2015 – OA Leos

By Matt Soeldner

Are you looking for something to do on 9/26/2015, looking for some exercise, fresh air and meeting some fellow Lions. Boy, do I have an opportunity for you.

The Canal Walk or as it is known in the District “Walk for Cure of Blindness/Diabetes Walk” is being held on September 26th this year. The walk begins at Scussett Beach at 9:00 am in the Main Parking Lot and if you are a camper there are campsites available at

All monies raised by the club will go to the MLERF and the club will be credited with this amount. This year DG Roland Grenier has brought back the 50/50 split for the Leos and Boy and Girl Scouts, this means that they get to keep half of what they raise to support their groups.

This is always a good time as there is entertainment, food, a collection of older cars, a pie eating contest and face painting for the kids (or John Mallers). If you cannot walk the whole 7 miles come down and do what you can or just to socialize. Tony Cabral organizes bus to transport the Leos and anyone else who wants to ride; there is usually plenty of room. Hope to see you there.
