Pathways to People 10 Yr Anniversary Event Poster
Sunday, October 21, 2018
2:00 p.m.

Help Norfolk Pathways for People and the Waterford Heritage & Agricultural Museum celebrate 10 years of fantastic trails in Waterford!

Norfolk Pathways for People grew from local interest in a public health initiative aimed at building a walkable community – a community which encourages citizens to rely on their cars less and choose walking more often.

Join Pathways for People at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 21, 2018 at the silos on the west end of Nichol Street and then visit W.H.A.M. for refreshments and to view our latest exhibit, Potters of Brant and Norfolk.
