KA-Motion Commotion (addendum!)

I missed one item--there is a free webinar on Walk to School Day coming up, which I am unable to attend. Can anyone attend this on Tuesday, June 28, 9:00 - 11:00? I hope we can organize a Walk to School Day this year, maybe as a prelude to launching a Walking School Bus!

Sorry it's been so long since the last newsletter. We've been busy moving! Our new house is NOT on Boundary, is a shorter and safer bike route to school, a shorter and more pleasant bike ride to work, and in walking distance of the grocery store. As the price of gas continues to rise, I predict these kinds of factors might influence property values.

KA-Motion meeting 7:00 Tues, June 21
