StoryWalk® Sundays-October 2022
October 9, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues in October.
The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park changes monthly, and a special story event accompanies each one on the second Sunday of each month. This month’s StoryWalk® Sunday is the perfect way to welcome the many splendors of fall.
Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home.
The featured storybook for October is “The Pumpkin Fair,” by Eve Bunting with illustrations by Eileen Christelow.
With bouncy rhymes and delightful watercolor-and-ink illustrations, this story explores a lively and colorful pumpkin fair, where pumpkins of every size are on display. There are all kinds of pumpkin-inspired foods—and even a marching band in pumpkin suits!
The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by October 6. To register, email to: [email protected] or call 717-762-0373. Limited to 20 children.
Children in grades K–5 may be dropped off and picked up at 3 p.m. All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.
Stay tuned for future StoryWalk® Sundays!
Current Covid safety guidelines are being followed.
Pine Hill’s StoryWalk® trail, an Institute project, was funded in part by Summit Endowment, Marge Kiersz and Rouzerville Business Association, with in-kind support from Washington Township, Hopewell Manufacturing, Waynesboro Area School District “Be the Village,” and Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library.
Additional support is from The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation; Alma W. Oyer; the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin, and an anonymous donor, in honor of the life and work of Eunice Statler. Facility support courtesy of Washington Township.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
