February 11 Tuesday P/L  Chapter Meeting Program: “Liz Sparks, Breathtaking Coastal Footpaths of England and Wales.” Join mother/daughter hiking pals, Margaret & Liz Sparks, for a sampling of breathtaking coastal footpaths of England and Wales. Yes, it is possible to hike a challenging hilly landscape and still gain weight.  Enjoying Cornish pasties, local ales and cream teas makes hiking the coastline a visual and culinary joy.   Azure waters, hillsides quilted with wildflowers, ancient castles and fluffy sheep offer stunning views at every hilltop.  Meeting held at the Early Learning Coalition, Suite 70, Northwood Centre, 1852 North Martin Luther King Blvd., Tallahassee.  For information, contact Liz Sparks (850) 570-5950 or liz.aparks57@gmail.com.
