StoryWalk® is a way for children to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. It is one of the projects to be supported by proceeds from the Ladner Rotary Shred-A-Thon fundraiser on Saturday, April 10th. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden platforms on wooden posts, which are installed along an outdoor trail. As children stroll down the trail with their families and friends they are directed to the next pages in the story at the next station. The Delta Child and Youth Committee is working with the Rotary Club of Ladner on a StoryWalk for Ladner, and one each with the two other Rotary clubs in Delta and the City of Delta, for an expected launch possibly this summer. 
The Shred-A-Thon will also support a program to feed families of high school students in need on weekends just started at Delta Secondary School in Ladner. Rotary Club of Ladner is sponsoring a School Grocery Pantry to provide students of families in need with nutritious food to take home for wholesome meals to help their learning at school. Save-On-Foods in Ladner is providing the food at “food bank prices”.
ShredWise will provide secure shredding services of old tax returns, credit card bills, business records, bank statements, and personal information documents, at $10 per banker box equivalent and by additional donation, if desired.
Shred-A-Thon proceeds will contribute to the StoryWalk program for outdoor children's reading and recreation and a food pantry program for high school students from low income families
The Shred-A-Thon, sponsored by Ideal Door and Envision Financial, is scheduled
Saturday, April 10th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
on a lot behind Eastlink (Delta Cable), at 5381 Ladner Trunk Road.
