No meeting; Train trip to Centralia Year Round Walk
No club meeting this month. Instead, many Mossbacks are carpooling to Albany, where they will join Albany Volkswalkers for a train trip to Centralia, Washington. Volkswalkers from Salem and Portland will join them along the way. For information about the carpool and train trip, contact Gail Sandgate at 541-510-0529.
The Centralia Historic Year Round Walk has a 5 km. (3.1 mile) route and a 10 km. (6.2 mile) route, both rated easy. Leaving the train at the historic Centralia train depot, the group will walk to the Safeway Store at 1129 Harrison Avenue to register and begin the walk through historic neighborhoods, parks, and past many antique shops downtown. Walkers are reminded to bring water with them; food will be available for purchase on the train (coming and going) and at many places in Centralia.
