The social walk is a way for community members to come together to learn about local events and resources. On Saturday afternoon, the Pottstown NAACP will have their inaugural luncheon to continue the celebration of black history. The keynote speaker of the event will be The Hon. Garrett D. Page, an African American judge for the county circuit of Norristown.

The Fit for Life’s Mercury Mile walking series will start back up again this year on April 19 at noon. The location is to be determined. The Mercury Mile is weekly and promotes walking and other fitness activities as a free exercise. The walk is every Wednesday at noon and travels from one organization to the next encouraging people to walk at lunch.

If there is inclement weather on Saturday morning then the springtime walk will be cancelled.
