NEW — 6 a.m. Sept. 24, 2010

Volksmarch — a walk through Newcastle on trails, sidewalks and road shoulders — is from 9 a.m. – noon Sept. 25, starting at HomeStreet Bank, 6949 Coal Creek Parkway S.E.

Participants can walk a five- or 10-kilometer route, and both pass by Newcastle Historic Coal Miner’s Cemetery and through Lake Boren Park, the Eastside Fuchsia Society demonstration garden and part of the former Seattle-Walla Walla railroad route.

An adult must accompany children younger than 12, and the five-kilometer route is not suitable for wheelchairs or strollers, because portions of the route are on trails with limited access.

Registration is not required. Learn more by calling Linda Stemler at HomeStreet Bank at 401-8778.
