An EGG-cellent Family Story Walk comes to the South Park Mall in Spencer on March 6

Local families with preschool and elementary-aged youth are invited to participate in a family Story Walk on Saturday, March 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the South Park Mall in Spencer. The event is free to participate in and registration is not needed.

Families are encouraged to visit the mall any time between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on the 6th. Once they pick up a goodie bag at the front entrance, they can walk through the mall at their own pace reading an EGG-cellent story and learning about eggs and agriculture.

“A Story Walk is a path with story sections posted along the way to engage families in literacy activities while learning about a subject - in this case, eggs - and while moving throughout the community,” said Amy Forrette, Clay County K-12 Educator with ISU Extension and Outreach, who is coordinating the event. “We hope that this Story Walk will give families an opportunity to connect with each other, as well as local resources and businesses in the community.”

Forrette said that the event is being made possible thanks to the generous support and sponsorship of ISU Extension and Outreach Clay County, Clay County Farm Bureau, Rembrandt Foods, the Iowa Egg Council, Bomgaars, Hy-Line and the South Park Mall.

Any questions can be directed to Amy at 712-262-2264 or forrette@iastate.edu.
