APRIL 11th

Whether you attend tomorrow’s Symposium and love it or if you miss it and regret it, there are a few more opportunities to learn more or help raise funds.APDS HAMPTON ROADS CHAPTER is sponsoring the  Boardwalk Stroll and Roll, a 9 block “amble” along the Boardwalk for walker sand people with assistive devices.  Ahhh…just imagine.  This year, they’ve added a 10 mile bike ride from First Landing State Park ending at Neptune Park.  There will be an education pavilion, stage events and music.  Activities end at 1 pm, leaving you at the beach on a spring afternoon.
