How to Join Us & Participate

  • It’s so easy.  Just go to Elm Park in Worcester that Saturday morning, around 9:45.  (Dress warm!  It might be cold.  Use layers.  Don’t forget sunscreen if it’s sunny & you’re bald like me.  Trust me on this one.)
  • Then look for the crowd of people milling around near the bridge on the South side of the park.
  • Kinda wander up and smile.  Say ‘hi.’  Stretch a little.  Sip your coffee.  And wait around until the leader starts doing the leadership thing.
  • Then just follow along.  It’s that easy.  Come join us.  It’s fun.  A beautiful experience that is definitely a story to share with friends & family.
  • By the way, bring your friends & family!  🙂
