ARLINGTON — Walking teams and individual walkers are invited to join Village Community Services’ fourth annual “Friendship Walk.”

The walk will start at the Legion Park gazebo, located at 114 N. Olympic Ave. in Arlington, at 1 p.m., on June 25. Registration for the walk opens at 11 a.m. that same day.

The roughly one-mile Friendship Walk through downtown Arlington promises to feature prizes, music and snacks for all who participate. All ages are welcome, and donations of any amount will be accepted. Those who donate or raise $25 or more in sponsorships will be thanked with a commemorative T-shirt.

Walkers may also pre-register by logging onto or by calling Michelle Dietz at 360-653-7752, ext. 14.

Proceeds from the walk will go to benefit Village Community Services’ “Voices of the Village” performance ensemble, as well as its Friday music and evenings with the arts programs, for people with significant disabilities who live in the Snohomish, Island and Skagit counties.

Voices of the Village will perform rock-and-roll hits from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s at the Friendship Walk. Voices of the Village is an interactive performance ensemble for people of all ages and abilities. The group performs at community festivals, fundraisers and other venues, and reaches approximately 4,000 audience members each year.
