“Walk to School Day” in the Town of Winamac is scheduled for Thursday, April 12th.
Students will gather at 7:15 a.m. ET at the Downtown Depot on the corner of Main and Logan Streets in Winamac and the walk will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET. The students will walk down Main Street to the north side of the County Courthouse, to Monticello Street to Riverside Drive and it will end at the Elementary and Middle Schools. Safe Routes Task Force leaders, Kiwanis Key Club members and local law enforcement will also participate in the effort. You are also welcome to join in.
A Safe Route to School was created in Winamac to promote healthier kids and allowing them to have a safe route to walk, run or bike to school. The Town of Winamac and the Eastern Pulaski School Corporation applied for a grant to create this route and it was granted in 2011.
