The annual area Crop Walk was held in Gladbrook recently. There were 22 walkers and the group raised $1,219.

The funds that are collected go to Church World Services. They help people in third world countries get water to their villages, provide seeds and help to plant gardens and fields. Getting a source of food to these families is very important.

Churches represented were United Methodist of Gladbrook, Salem Church of Lincoln, Chapel United Methodist Church of rural Gladbrook, Peace United Church of Christ of Gladbrook and host church, Garwin United Methodist Church.

Following the trek on the Wolfcreek Nature Trail near Gladbrook, lunch was provided by the United Methodist Church of Garwin.
