In preparation for the 25th anniversary of the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday, September 29, haikus submitted by residents are now applied to the trail!

The Haiku-mobile and dedicated volunteers (including Bedford’s Suzy and Dave Enos) used laser cut stencils and chalk paint in blue and white to add the words of wisdom (or humor!) to the trail. This paint will wear away with use and is expected to be gone by the end of winter.

A special Haiku Hangout is planned for Arlington Center. Organizers predict a well-attended event at Arlington’s Uncle Sam Plaza on Saturday, September 29, from 11 to 3, and the community is invited. Visit and learn which poems are stenciled at which locations.
