Range Road 232 subdivision residents connection through weekly walking group
As a recent block party host, Jamie Imeson understands that even when you live close to others, you don't necessarily know each other. With block parties on hold due to the pandemic, Jamie and some neighbourhood friends looked for another way to build connections in their community while maintaining appropriate physical distancing, so last month they began meeting every Wednesday night for a walking group. It's an easy-paced way to socialize, make new friends and build community for people living in the Graham Heights and Scot Haven neighbourhood.
