Ice Cream Walk!
August 10 & 11, 2022

Vic's and Gunther's signs
Sacramento's warm summer nights are the perfect opportunity to eat ice cream at its two locally owned ice creameries in the Land Park and Curtis Park neighborhoods: Vic's and Gunther's. If you didn't get enough on the previous night or if you couldn't make it, there is another opportunity on Thursday morning to sample the tasty treats at these creameries. The walk between the two is a lovely shady stroll through upscale neighborhoods with classic 20's and 30's homes. Join the Sacramento Walking Sticks for this annual fun event and bring the family!

You are all invited to come to the 1st Sticks Membership Meeting since COVID locked us down, March 2020. Heidi Foster has offered us the use of the Clubhouse from the Bluffs where she lives and we'll make sure we start/end early enough so no one has to worry about driving in the dark. Plan on coming this Thursday night, July 28th at 5:00 p.m. The address is: 3900 Riva Ridge, Fair Oaks. The Club will be providing pizza and drinks and if you prefer bringing something else to eat, please do so.
If you need volkssporting supplies like event/distance books, Sticks Bucks or a New Walker Packet the Membership Meetings are a great opportunity to purchase them. Do you have pull tabs to turn in from your soda or beer cans? We'll take them and give them to Ronald McDonald House.
