Grab a shovel, help a neighbor

The Detroit Lakes Active Living Committee announces the Good Neighbor Shoveling Campaign.

This is the second annual and this year is expanded beyond the Polar Fest Week -- we're encouraging residents to shovel all winter.

With the winter season here, the Detroit Lakes Active Living committee is kicking off its Good Neighbor Shoveling Campaign. When there's a snowfall, we encourage neighbors to help each other by shoveling their own sidewalk and a neighbor's walk.

Not only will you have done a good deed, you'll reap the benefits of physical activity. Then, enjoy your hard work and clean sidewalks by going for a brisk walk.

Throughout the winter, if the Active Living Committee finds a good neighbor shoveling their neighbor's sidewalk, that person will win a prize donated by local businesses.

During Polar Fest week in February, the campaign will intensify as our Active Living team will have a bigger presence actively trying to catch shovelers in the act. If we find you shoveling your sidewalk and/or your neighbor's, you'll have another chance to win a prize donated by local businesses. Listen to KDLM Radio for more information throughout winter months.
