Southern Seven Health Department held their 3rd Annual Tour de Seven 5K Run/Walk at the Ferne Clyffe State Park in Johnson County on Saturday, Oct. 28, with over 40 people in attendance. T

The weather was chilly but with the beautiful fall foliage, the toasty warm bon fire along with the hot coffee and hot cocoa, no one seemed to mind the cooler temperature.
