River Trail Walk

Time to walk the bridge on Labor Day! If you can’t make it to the Mackinac Bridge, come to Albion!

Albion Labor Day River Trail Walk 2016

The traditional Albion Labor Day River Trail Walk is sponsored by the Albion Health Care Alliance.  Everyone is invited.  Here is the official event page: albionhca.org/events.html

We are now including more options added for limited mobility and limited time walks.  At 10 a.m. on Labor Day (September 4, 2017)  please meet for a group photo by the Victory for Kids playground in Victory Park.  After that we will do the Labor Day Bridge Walk over the Albion foot bridge.  From there, some people had a car waiting on the other side of the bridge, others continued the walk on the Albion River Trail to Harris Field.  (1.5 miles)  Most people opt to walk back for the full walk of 3 miles.

Others had dropped off cars previously at Harris Field and carpooled back. In this way more people decided to customize the walk to their own schedule.  Fresh cold bottled water was supplied at the 2016 walk by Culligan Water in Albion.  It was a refreshing day, all around.

See the 2017 event on Facebook and invite your friends!

Harrington School is once again a home of education for students who live in Albion up to grade five.  The school had been closed due to financial and attendance issues for the past three years.  Now, Harrington is part of the newly enlarged Marshall Public School District.  Harrington is a great place for volunteers and interns from Albion College, it is so close by.
“Welcome Home Albion.”
