Our club was established in August of 1997 under the auspices of the American Volkssport Association.  We are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage everyone, regardless of their level of fitness, to get out, exercise and have fun doing it.  Our walking activities are open to everyone. 

Our yearly dues are $10 for a single person and $15 for a family although Membership is not required.   While it is not required, we recommend that each member keep record books in which their achievements may be noted.  Normally these are $6, each for the Distance and the Event books. 

As an incentive, we offer New Walker Packets for $5, that include BOTH books and coupons that allow you to walk your first three events- normally $4 each for free using the included coupons - As you fill each book, you may mail them in for an award of a certificate, patch, or pin.  Incentives and awards are an important part of any successful endeavor.

While walks are $4 each, we offer a savings card that costs $35 and is good for ten walks.
