Library to host Jingle Bell Walk

REED CITY — Community members are invited to take a trek for literacy at the third annual Jingle Bell Walk.

From 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, walkers will lap the halls of Reed City High School to raise money for the Reed City Library’s move to its new building.

To participate, people can be a sponsored walker, sponsor a walker or drop in the night of the event to walk the halls and raise awareness about the project.

Last year’s event raised $556 and the innaugural walk brought in $1,200. Nine walkers were signed up as of Thursday, and the event typically draws around 20.

“We always have more than what signs up, because it’s a family event a lot of kids come with their parents and people drop in the day of the event,” said Library Director Heather Symon.

All funds raise through the community walk will be added to the $48,000 that has been raised for the new library.
