Meet Me at the Meet Up with The Holmes Run Park Committee

The internet is useful to connect people with common interests and "Meet Up" is the latest trend. The Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) uses this venue to advertise and invite community cyclists and families to join in "no drop" rides, usually scheduled once a month on Saturday mornings. Find out what a No Drop ride is and how Meet Up can be used to find other groups with interests similar to your own or how to create a group to find others with interests you share. With the new exercise equipment installed a Meet Up group could be used to "find" others interested in using the Holmes Run trail for running or exercising. Or organizing the dog park to the east of the library. Or forming an invasive plant removal group. Jake Jakubek, a BPAC board member, organizer of the monthly bike rides, and West End resident will explain how the free Meet Up sites are organizing people with shared interests.
