Back in 2014, long time Rossmoor resident Bernie Beskind started a program for people of all ages aptly named Rossmoor Walk & Talk. His idea was simple enough, whoever attends form groups of 2-4 people and walk in and around Rush Park and, wait for it – talk. How long they walk, how fast they walk, and what they talk about is up to them. If you need a topic to talk about, Bernie was always there and happy to welcome new and returning walkers and to help out.
Bernie’s said this simple plan creates an informal way to meet your neighbors and get some exercise at the same time. The best part? Walking can save or at least extend your life, plus you’ll get to meet some really great people. The Rossmoor Walk & Talk is open to all ages and walking speeds. Typically the groups walk around the park one, two, and sometimes three times. It’s all up to you.
Since then the Rossmoor Walk and Talk has become a fun routine for a number of neighbors and currently Herb Halling is coordinating the Walk & Talk events.
The more the merrier – Invite your friends and please spread the word. Rossmoor Walk & Talk events are:
- Monday mornings starting at 10:00 AM
- Tuesday mornings starting at 10:30 AM
- Tuesday mornings starting at 10:00 AM
- Thursday mornings starting at 10:00 AM
- Saturday mornings starting at 10:00 AM
Meet at Rush Park near the children’s play area just before the start time, as long as it’s not raining.
