BELLOWS FALLS - Walkers who like to "Scoop the Loop" in Bellows Falls will be able to combine their turns around the village with a good cause during a benefit food drive Saturday, May 22.
Scoop the Loop is a term used by local residents to designate the walk from the Square, up Rockingham Street, down Atkinson Street to Westminster Street, and back to the Square. It is approximately a mile long.
Our Place Drop-in Center is organizing the event in an effort to fill its food shelves while promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food donation to Our Place at 4 Island Street at 10 a.m. before taking a one- or two-mile walk around the village on designated routes. Maps will be provided.
Prizes will be given, including for most members of one family, most employees of the same company, most people from the same gym, oldest walker, youngest walker, and most interesting attire, among others.
There is no charge for participating. Rain date for the event is Sunday, May 23.
Further information is available by calling Our Place at 463-2217.
