On a recent sunny winter's day a local day care centre brought a group of children to the StoryWalk sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ladner. Along 1 km of the Millenium Trail in Ladner, starting at Neilson Grove Elementary School, 5500 Admiral Boulevard, the children took the trail with parents helping them read a two-page spread of a story book at each of 21 stations.  The children were running, hopping, skipping, and singing between each story board as directed at each station.

The stories along the trail are changed every month throughout the year, promoting reading literacy and physical literacy. StoryWalk is a collaborative project throughout Delta among the Rotary Club of Ladner and the two other Rotary clubs of North Delta and Tsawwassen, which have each sponsored their own StoryWalk, the Delta Child and Youth Committee, Delta Literacy Outreach and the City of Delta. -- photo Chris Offer
