Cutting the ribbon: Jennifer Ludwig, Wixom Elementary PTA president;
Kenneth Gutman, Walled Lake Schools superintendent; students Angelena
Lamsal, Devin Hill and Lee Bellino; Wixom PE teacher Mikalah Geistler, stu-
dents Maryann Spraggins, Cameron Boone, Emanuel Zefi and Austin Murray;
and Alec Bender, Wixom principal.

H

ealthy bodies make healthy
minds:' Walled Lake Schools
Superintendent Kenneth
Gutman said at the recent ribbon-
cutting ceremony Sept. 6 for the Wixom
Elementary Walking Path.
Wixom Elementary School principal,
Alec Bender, said, "The walking path is a
wonderful new resource for the physical
fitness of our students, and it is a great
asset for members of the Wixom com-
munity who are invited to come to walk
or jog on the path in the evening and
during the weekend:'

The path is a .5-mile paved track
purchased for the school by the Wixom
Elementary PTA. The school will be
starting a "Mileage Club" in the next
few weeks in which parent volunteers
will help students to log the number of
laps they walk at recess time and to earn
prizes at certain milestones.
Bender added, "We are very grate-
ful to the Wixom Elementary PTA and
the generous families in the Wixom
Elementary school community who
made donations to the PTA over the past
three years" for this project.



Vleet Your Best Friend At The Zoo

L

ooking for a four-legged best
friend? The Michigan Humane
Society (MHS) and Detroit
Zoological Society will host Meet Your
Best Friend at the Zoo from 1-7 p.m.
Friday, Sept. 20, and from 10
a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept.
21. Dogs, cats, puppies and
kittens from more than 30
animal welfare organiza-
tions will be available.
Friday will also feature
special "Yappy Hour" festivi-
ties from 4-6 p.m. Event guests will have
a chance to win giveaways, and adopters
will receive a free family photo taken on-
site with their new best friends.
There is no charge for admission or
parking for the event in the front park-
ing lot. Regular admission and parking

fees apply for the zoo.
Because puppies are often in high
demand, "puppy passes" will be given on
Saturday morning to the first 25 guests
looking specifically to adopt a puppy.
Those with passes will be
allowed to enter at 9:45 a.m.
Adoption fees and policies
are set by each participat-
ing group and not by event
hosts or sponsors. Animals
will be adopted only to
qualified homes. Adopters
must present a driver's license or state ID
card. All dogs and cats will have received
a medical check-up and age-appropriate
vaccinations.

michiganhumane.org or call (248)
