Walk With A Song In Your Heart!
Songs have been written about many urban locations and many rural communities as well. Song locations were frequently selected because of their visual beauty and/or their historical significance. Almost all songs bring back memories of the past for the walker. It is hoped that these walks bring back pleasant memories for the participants. Any sanctioned AVA event in the U.S. that passes through a City or Town that is in a song title or mentioned in a song would qualify. To sign-up and receive a Program Book, send $10 to: Sonoma County Stompers, P.O.Box 6838. Santa Rosa, CA 95406-0838. Upon completion you will receive a patch.
