Corn Hill’s newest neighborhood attraction, our Historic Wellness Trail, has now been marked with posts designed by artist Lee Kosow and topped with beautiful plaques that denote ten historic Corn Hill sites. This project has been spearheaded by Wegmans in conjunction with their wellness campaign and accomplished through the efforts of CHNA chairperson, Marty Petrella.
On Saturday, October 26, a 1-2 p.m. inaugural walk of this trail will begin at site #1, “The Genesee River”—near the “Water Spirits” statue at the intersection of Exchange Boulevard and S. Plymouth Avenue. All ten sites will be visited so that participants can complete the Wellness Passport Book rubbings required for eligibility to win a $100 Wegmans gift card. Hundreds of passport books have already been distributed and more will be available at the start of this event. Anyone wishing to procure a passport book ahead of time may do so by contacting the CHNA office at 262-3142 or by picking one up at the at the East Avenue Wegmans information desk. Be sure to bring a graphite pencil in order to accomplish your “rubbings.”
Once all ten sites have been visited and rubbed into your passport, it should be dropped off at the CHNA office, located at 133 S. Fitzhugh Street. A random passport drawing for the Wegmans gift certificate will occur annually at our Corn Hill Arts Festival. The winner will be notified and need not be present in order to win.
Wegmans representatives will be present on this historic occasion to fortify walkers with healthy refreshments, so, mark your calendar, plan to join your fellow Cornhillers and enjoy a brisk and informative neighborhood walk at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 26.
