Rine or shine, Akron’s walk leaders were committed to leading the first walk of the year. While the forecast of increasingly heavy rain kept us on edge, we were looking forward to being on our feet for our Friday lunchtime walk down Main Street. Two people showed up and our City Organizer welcomed them with a bag of umbrellas. It was a great walk — and we didn’t melt. The small size of the group gave everyone time to ask their questions and revisit talking points from the stops before. We got to explore all sorts of ideas and discuss with the engineers potential challenges with the proposed investment of redesigning Main Street. Quality over quantity!
