National Walk to School Day
A group of police officers, volunteer fire fighters and other emergency personnel assisted with the annual National Walk to School Day Wednesday, Oct. 9 in Landrum. The escorts ensured Landrum’s students could walk to downtown safely in promotion of kids being more active.
