May General Membership Meeting

Ken Cross will share his experiences traveling along the Camino de Santiago.  Although the Caminode Santiago, or Way of St James, has traditionally been a religious pilgrimage, many people choose it as a walking holiday for other reasons. Some walk The Way for fitness and as a personal goal in their journey to better physical health. Others choose to walk the Camino for the mental benefits of unplugging from their daily lives, allowing them time for peace and self-development.

While those travelling on the Camino for religious reasons are now in the minority, people walking the Camino are still known as pilgrims, or ‘peregrinos’. People walk in groups, alone, or with a partner. The Camino is well known for its sense of community and sociable atmosphere. Pilgrims passing by will greet each other with a welcome of ‘Buen Camino!’, loosely translating as ‘Have a great experience on the Camino’ and so, conversations with strangers are easily started.

Meeting at the Belle Cooledge Library, 5600 S. Land Park Dr., Sacramento on May 11 at 3:30 pm.  Please join your fellow members at a local restaurant.
