The JDRF needs your help.

The JDRF Walk organizers have contacted Judy, WJ9K, asking for our assistance again this year. The 5K walk is scheduled for May 16 at Riverside Park in Neenah. As in the past we will meet at the Recreational Park (Neenah Swimming Pool) parking lot which is also the location of rest stop 1. This will give us ample parking and get us away from the noise (PA and loud music) at the park. The Walk begins at 10 AM so we should meet at Rec Park at 9 AM for assignments which will be given out on a first come basis.
