As part of a movement to promote health, nature, and local parks and trails, Valley In Motion is partnering with two organizations to promote healthy lifestyles on October 23rd and 30th in Scranton and Archbald, respectively. Both events are open to the public.
On Saturday, October 30th at 9:00AM, the Archbald Neighborhood Association and Dr. Darlene Danay of Old Forge will lead a 2-mile walk starting at Maslyar Memorial Park (also called Laurel Street Little League) on Laurel Street in Archbald.
Dr. Danay will give a short talk on lifestyle medicine before walkers proceed to the Gravity Slope Oil House and Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. Members of the Archbald Neighborhood Association will be on hand to discuss the future re-purposing of the Oil House, a historic building part of the sprawling Gravity Slope Colliery that employed 1,700 people a century ago.
