ISU Extension of Dickinson County to offer Free Family StoryWalk in Spirit Lake January 16 

ISU Extension and Outreach of Dickinson County will host a Family StoryWalk on January 16.

K-12 Educator Hannah Dibble says, local businesses have partnered with the Extension for the event.  "A StoryWalk focuses on getting a family together to get some physical exercise, as they walk there's a certain route, and they can read parts of a story book together.  This route is special, as businesses in Downtown Spirit Lake are each hosting sections of the story.  So, they'll get to engage with local businesses, and this book explores Little Critter's Adventure as he Saves Money."

She notes that the event is free, however registration is required.  "To preregister, we have a link on our website and it's a simple form to fill out so we know how many children are in your family and we can have enough supplies for the family activities.  Preregistration also gets families entered into a prize drawing for some chamber bucks to spend with our wonderful local businesses, as well as a prize drawing for a set of books to encourage more reading at home."

The StoryWalk will run from 10-2 on Saturday, January 16.
