Sponsored by partners of the Putnam County Health Coalition, its objective is to introduce and highlight safe walking/running routes in our community. The next Walking Wednesday is scheduled for 5-6 p.m. June 8. Next week's starting point will be at the shelterhouse on the south side of Big Walnut Sports Park. Everyone is welcome.
