Residents Forward, presenting sponsor The Rimmer Family and a host of partners invite the whole community to our Let’s Walk PW Musical Walk on Saturday, Nov. 27 at 11:30 a.m. as part of the kickoff to Port Holiday Magic an annual event hosted by The Greater Port Washington BID, Port Washington Chamber of Commerce, Landmark on Main Street, Residents Forward and the Town of North Hempstead.
Walkers will meet at the Mural Garden adjacent to Wright Music and walk with Residents Forward to the LIRR station as a local DJ plays holiday tunes. There, walkers will be greeted with coupons for a free hot chocolate at a local bakery and a chance to win a gift card to a local business sponsored by Mindy Germain, Dawn Serignese and Melissa Vissicchio.
Attendees can also pose for pictures at a sleigh set up at the station.
“It has been so much fun working with Residents Forward to plan this holiday walk. Our goal is to show residents there is a reason in every season to Walk PW,” stated Let’s Walk PW donor and longtime Residents Forward champion Jennifer Rimmer. “Furry friends are welcome!” Rimmer added.
Residents Forward launched Let’s Walk PW in September with 15 web integrated signs circling out about a mile from The Town Dock reminding people that really special destinations such as shops, restaurants, parks, community gardens, history and entertainment are closer than they think, and accessible by foot! Each sign contains a QR code that leads to an interactive map created by the Greater Port Washington BID that allows pedestrians to click on individual shops and restaurants, get walking directions and even make a reservation! “Walking has never been more popular in Port Washington,” stated project manager and Residents Board Member Mindy Germain. “We just want to help people get to their destinations with ease, while expanding the variety and number stops pedestrians take, especially to our local businesses.”
For more information about the launch event, or ways to get more involved with Residents Forward the community is invited to visit www.ResidentsForward.org or contact Residents Forward Executive Director Patricia Class and Director of Development Kim Keiserman at 767-9151 or [email protected].
Residents Forward participates in these community engagement event to better reflect their mission of advancing the sustainability, vibrancy, beauty, and resiliency of the Port Washington Peninsula.
