Detroit Lakes residents Twila and Arv Halvorson are planning to walk again this year and would appreciate your support. Donations can be left at First Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes, or by contacting Halvorsons at 847-5313.

Last year the walk netted $8,000, with the Halvorsons raising $400 of that from Detroit Lakes residents.

This year, monies raised will help build a new classroom and provide textbooks and school supplies for Ketumbeine Primary School in Tanzania.
