The Naples Walking Club received a short note from Chante Pemberton of the Blue Zone Project in which she thanked the club members for their support. Several members had attended a Moai Celebration and formed a Moai called The Tin City Walkers for the downtown walkers. Dawn and Paul formed another Moai for a north Naples group. Chante wrote that she looks “forward to a fun-filled relationship between our project and the Naples Walking Club.” When our northern members return this fall we will have a speaker from the Blue Zone Project explain more about its purposes.

Wishing each one a very happy celebration and a wonderful year to follow!
Our club Labor Day walk will be at the Collier County North Regional Park on Livingston Road at 7:15, next Monday, September 5. Wendy has generously offered to bring the coffee and a breakfast snack, so please let me know if you plan to come so she can plan accordingly.
Drive to the back of the soccer field parking lot where the walk will begin. There is a covered area near the field for our refreshments. Hope to see you there. Please email or call (571-2770) if you are coming. Thanks, Mary.
At the Blue Zone Moai Celebration this past week several of the downtown weekday walkers decided to form a Moai group called The Tin City Walkers. They will walk together and record the days, times, distances and related events (such as breakfast!) for the next ten weeks. There will be another moai celebration in October where prizes are given. Other members are welcome to form a group of five to eight in another neighborhood and keep a tally for ten weeks. We will have the necessary forms this week. The party was very nice with wine to drink and favors of water bottles and tee shirts to take home. Look for some new interested walkers to show up some Saturday soon!
Everyone is invited to attend the Blue Zones Moai walking group celebration at the Naples Community Hospital downtown on Wednesday, August 10. The meeting is in the Telford auditorium to the right of the main hospital entrance. It runs from 5 – 7. Wear your Club t-shirt. There will be wine! Mary.
