This was the 17th year that the Right to Life Walkathon took place at the Maryhill Heritage Park which is ideal for the 6 kilometer walk.  It is close for everyone who took part and we have a lovely park to use and enjoy.  It was a cold day but the rain had stopped making the walk more enjoyable.

The walkers represented the Maryhill Knights of Columbus, Holy Name Society and the St. Boniface Catholic Women’s League.  Members from the Knights of Columbus and Holy Name Society were Grand Knight Tim Vegh, Gerry Goetz ,Dan Stemmler, and Bernard Brohman.  Catholic Women’s League members walking were president Fran Vegh, Joanne Nederend, Maria O’Drowsky, Carolyn Stemmler and Diane Strickler.
