Walkers will gather at the corner of Cobb Meadow Rd. and E. Harrisville Rd. in Dublin, near Granny D's home.

We'll end in downtown Peterborough for a Community Celebration complete with lunch, free Ben & Jerry's ice cream, speakers and entertainment.  Come share your stories of Granny D!

Parking: There will be shuttles leaving from 16 Summer St. (behind the Fire Dept.) in Peterborough beginning at 8:45 am.  Please email Doreen at doreen@opendemocracy.me to secure a seat.  If you prefer to park at Cobb Rd., please be advised that it is a dirt road and that we will also have shuttles to take you back to your car after the event.
