The Moving Starke County Forward coalition wants to improve the health of local residents one step at a time! The coalition is sponsoring a “Moving Starke County Across America” walking challenge to collectively encourage residents to walk, bike or run 3,000 miles between Memorial Day and Labor Day. There will be prizes and raffle drawings after the challenge wraps up in September.
The Association for Library Service to Children has assembled some of the best websites for children, particularly to help them with their schoolwork and to feed their curiosity. Great Websites for Kids brings together really good websites, in an easy-to-use format. Visit greatsites.ala.org today!
